CLERGYMEN DECEASED. On Monday, February 1, at the Vicarage House, St. Margaret's, in Leicester, after a very short illness, in the sixty-ninth year of his age, the Rev. Thomas Burnaby, A. M. Vicar of that parish, Rector of Misterton, one of the senior acting magistrates, and one of the oldest incumbents in the county, having been inducted into Misterton, in March, 1786. He was the eldest son of the Rev. Robert Burnaby, LL.B. who was Vicar of St. Margaret's, Rector of Wanlip, and Prebendary of Lincoln, by Katherine, only child of Thomas Jee, Esq. of Leicester. He was of Clare Hall, in the University of Cambridge, B. A. 1784, M. A. 1787; and was chosen a Dixie Fellow of Emmanuel College, in August, 1789. He married Lucy, fourth daughter of Richard Dyott, Esq. of Freeford, in the county of Stafford, by Katherine, only daughter of Thomas Herrick, Esq. second brother of the late William Herrick, Esq. of Bean Manor Park, and has left a disconsolate widow and ten children to lament their irreparable loss. In 1795, when the county was in a most disturbed state, an alarming riot broke out at Barrow-uponSoar, in this county; accompanying the Leicester troops of Yeomanry-Cavalry, the subject of this memorial, by his firmness as a magistrate, aided by the good conduct of the Yeomanry, was mainly instrumental in quelling the disturbance. For this service he publicly received the thanks of Government, through the Judges, at the following assizes. He was the fondest and best of husbands, the kindest and most affectionate of fathers, whose greatest happiness was in the bosom of his family. Those who knew him best, esteemed him most. Totally free from hypocrisy or guile, he endeavoured to do his duty to God and man. Could apparent health and strength have ensured continuance on earth, it might have been looked for in him ; but at the close of a day spent in the utmost cheerfulness and vigour, he was, in less than half an hour after lying down upon his pillow, summoned to resign his life into the hands of him who gave it.
