DEATH OF AN AGED RECTOR. The Very Rev. Henry Carrington, Dean and Rector of Booking, died on Tuesday somewhat suddenly. The dean, who was born in 1814, was the oldest clergyman in Essex. Son of Sir Edmund Codrington Carrington, first Chief Justice of Ceylon, he was educated at Charterhouse School and Caius College, Cambridge, taking his degree in 1838, when he became curate of Hadleigh, Suffolk. In 1845 he was appointed rector of Bocking, a living which confers the honorary title of dean. Up to within the last seven years the dean was able to take the services in his parish church, but latterly he had been very feeble. He married during his curacy days Miss Lyle, daughter of Captain Haseldine Lyle, who survives him. There were three daughters of the marriage, two of whom, Miss Carrington and the Countess Evelyn Martinengo Cesaresco, are living. The dean was an eminent scholar, and the author of several works, including translations of Victor Hugo's poems, Thomas à. Kempis and Baudelaire. He also published an anthology on French poetry. During bis long rectorate at Bocking he did a great deal to restore and beautify the grand old church.
