The death is announced of the Right Hon. George William James Lysaght,
sixth Baron Lisle in the peerage of Ireland. He was of advanced age
and for a long time in feeble heath. In early life he held a
commission in the South Devon Militia Artillery and saw active service
as a volunteer in the Maori war in New Zealand.

Flanders for the Protestant cause in Elizabeth's reign, and another in
the same cause at the Battle of the Boyne in 1690, when extensive
lands in Cork and Limerick were conferred for distinguished service.
By his marriage with Amy Emily, a daughter of the late Ayliffe
Langford, Lord Lisle had two children-a son, the Hon. Horace George
Lysaght, who died five months ago, and a daughter, the Hon. Kathleen
Eliy. A grandson, John Nicholas Lysaght, a minor, succeeds as seventh
Two nephews of Lord Lisle served in the present war-Major Marwood,
York and Lancaster Regiment, wounded in France, and Captain Charles
Marwood, Royal Warwickshire Regiment, killed in Cameroon.
