Deaths of Old Residents. JAMES BISHOP BRADSHAW. One of the oldest residents of the district, in the person of James Bishop Bradshaw, passed away at his residence, North-street Penrith on Thursday Morning last, after a very short illness. Deceased was a native of the East Indies, and born in the military barracks, his father at the time being bandmaster of the 41st Regiment stationed there, but was shortly afterwards killed in action. His mother was also unfortunate in being killed by a falling limb of a tree whilst nursing deceased in front of the barracks when he was but three weeks old, the babe also receiving injury, marks of which he carried to his grave. With his one brother (Matthew), James was sent to the military school until nearly ten years of age, when they were appointed to a firm in Sydney (Australia). The lads received such hard treatment from the head of this firm that they decided to abscond, which they did successfully. Separating, each took a different road, deceased travelling west - but the brother was neither seen nor heard of by him again; finally, James reached Castlereagh, where he obtained employment as a laborer. He afterwards took service with Mr John Brown of the same place, remaining with him for twenty-two years. About thirty two years ago he came to Penrith, where he has resided every since, working for various masters and latterly for Mr Arthur Judges, J.P., whose grounds he tended up to Saturday last week, when, through a complication if diseases and old age, he became unfit for work and took to his bed. Mr. McMaster was called in, but from the first held out no hopes of recovery, and the end to a hard and troubled life came peacefully on Thursday morning at the age of 71 years and 7 months, deceased having been a resident of the colony about 61 years. Mr. Bradshaw married the widow of the late John Brownlow, and with her leaves behind him two sons and one daughter, viz. Messrs Arthur and Charles Bradshaw, and Mrs W. Cattell of Emu Plains. The funeral took place on Friday at 3 o'clock, under the superintendence of Mrs. John Price and Son, the remains being interred in the cemetery of St Stephens, Penrith. The local corps of the Salvation Army having thus lost a tried and trusty soldier, a memorial service will be conducted in the Barracks to-morrow (Sunday) evening.
