Edward Marjoribanks, MP for Eastbourne 1929-1932
Marjoribanks (pronounced "Marchbanks") was the son of Archibald John Marjoribanks and
Elizabeth Brown, who were married in 1897. After the death of Archibald, Elizabeth married
her first cousin, Douglas McGarel Hogg, who was later created Viscount Hailsham, and who
was the father of Quintin Hogg, Baron Hailsham of St. Marylebone and a major political figure
during the second half of the twentieth century. As a result, Edward Marjoribanks was
Quintin Hogg's half-brother.
Marjoribanks was elected to the House of Commons for the seat of Eastbourne at the
general election in May 1929 in the interest of the Conservative Party, and remained the
member until his death in April 1932. The following report of his death appeared in the
'Manchester Guardian' of 4 April 1932:-
'We regret to announce the death, under tragic circumstances, of Mr. Edward Marjoribanks,
M.P., one of the most promising of the younger Conservatives. Mr. Marjoribanks was found
by his stepfather, Lord Hailsham (Secretary for War), shot dead in the billiard-room of the
latter's house, Carter's Corner Place, near Hailsham, on Saturday night. Lord Hailsham, who
was greatly distressed, sent at once for a doctor and the police.
'Mr. Marjoribanks, who was 32 years of age, had recently been suffering from the effects of
overwork, and particularly from insomnia.
'Mr. Marjoribanks was found lying partly across a chair with a gunshot wound in his chest.
Near the body was a double-barrelled sporting gun. Adjoining the billiard room is a small
anteroom, which is used as a gun-room, and it is believed that it was here that the gun was
discharged. Marks on the floor and walls indicate that Mr. Marjoribanks was standing in the
gunroom when he received the wound.
'He fell to the floor, but apparently, retaining consciousness, staggered or crawled through
the open doorway into the billiard-room, collapsed across the chair, and died immediately.
Only one barrel of the gun had been discharged. On the floor, it is understood, two live
cartridges were found.
'Mr. Marjoribanks was to have passed the weekend at Lord Hailsham's home before returning
to Westminster for the resumption of the House of Commons sittings tomorrow. In addition
to his duties at Westminster he had been engaged with unremitting energy on the
completion of a life of Lord Carson which he was writing, and the strain had been obviously
telling on him. He left London on Monday with Mr. Quintin McGarel Hogg (Lord Hailsham's
son) to spend a quiet week-end in the country. While at Carter's Corner Place he had been
passing the time quietly on the beautiful estate, which lies on a hill off the Battle-Lewes
Road outside Hailsham. Mr. Marjoribanks had been seen about the house earlier in the day,
and had taken meals with his stepfather.'
Volume 1 of Marjoribanks's life of Lord Carson was published posthumously later that year,
and was subsequently completed in two further volumes written by Ian Colvin in 1934 and
1936.
Although the above report only hints at it, there seems to be little doubt that Marjoribanks's
death was not an accident, but rather as the result of suicide. One version of events has it
that it was not overwork which caused the suicide, but the fact that he had been jilted by
a woman.
George Osbaldeston, MP for East Retford 1812-1818
The following biography of George Osbaldeston appeared in the Australian monthly magazine
'Parade' in its issue for September 1971. It contains a number of errors, which I have done
my best to correct:-
'When Squire Osbaldeston, England's supreme sportsman, got the fox-hunting urge, he didn't
do things by halves. Hunting with two dog packs - one for morning, the other for afternoon -
he rode from Monday to Saturday, resting only on the Sabbath.
'Then came one day in 1825 when the intrepid Osbaldeston's horse fell at a jump and Sir John
Musgrave's mount, galloping at full pelt behind, tripped and crashed on to the squire's prone
body. He suffered multiple fractures, but the most obvious break was in one leg. Through the
torn flesh protruded the splintered end of the tibia. Blood overflowed from the injured man's
riding boot. Surrounded by hastily summoned medicos, who were debating whether the
shattered limb should be amputated, the squire mused to a pale-faced friend standing nearby:
"You know," he said, "I'm so damned unlucky at this hunting. I'm thinking seriously of going
out no more than a couple of times a week."
'Actually the irrepressible squire didn't keep his word, for after 18 months in hospital he was
back at his old trick of two-pack, six-day-a-week hunting. In between these hunting sprees,
he took time out to prove he was still the country's greatest cricketer, tennis player, pistol
shot, and, although an amateur, a bare-knuckle exponent who could hold his own with anyone
but the immortal John Gully. He was also a top-flight sculler and wrestler, indeed a champion
of champions.
'But all these sporting activities cost money and Squire Osbaldeston was never a penny-
pincher. Indeed, to sate his sporting appetite, he blew his fortune on it - about $8 million in
modern [i.e.1971] value.
'George Osbaldeston, the sporting phenomenon of the 19th century, was born in Yorkshire in
1787 [sic - actually 26 Dec 1786] the son of a wealthy landowner. When the boy was six his
father [MP for Scarborough 1784-1790] died, leaving him the "squire" title and the ownership
of 20,000 valuable acres complete with tenants. Young George went to Eton [from whence he
was expelled] and Oxford without distinction. Later his mother insisted he entered Parliament,
but sheer boredom drove him out and he took a post as High Sheriff of the York Assizes.
By now Osbaldeston had made a name for himself as one of the most colourful of the wealthy
and noble breed of sporting blades. He laid bets in thousands of pounds, drank his half-dozen
bottles of claret nightly - and astounded fans with his cricket prowess. Not only could he bowl
a ball right across Lords, but his speed deliveries so terrified players on the receiving end that
pads were used by batsmen for the first time. In one game, when Osbaldeston as a batsman
was smashing the bowlers all over the ground, he was unexpectedly caught by a farmer, Peter
Bramley, who executed a brilliant catch. So delighted was Osbaldeston by young Bramley's
amazing feat that he presented the farmer with one of the tall white hats he invariably wore.
'Not long after this game Bramley was caught poaching by a gamekeeper, but when the culprit
said his name was Squire George Osbaldeston and showed the gamekeeper the name written
in the hat's lining, all was forgiven. To ease the gamekeeper's discomfort, Bramley invited the
man to share a meal with him at the George Inn. Both ate the best fare on the menu and the
host then directed that the bill be sent to Squire Osbaldeston.
'Osbaldeston never seemed to lose his cricketing skill. Indeed, at 60, he was still able to score
66 for Kent against Surrey and then skittle eight wickets for 22. As a tennis player there was
no one in England to match him. In fact, when the mighty French champion, Louis Barre
toured, Osbaldeston was the only man in the country to defeat the visitor. Later, he beat the
Frenchman again, this time using a large glove against Barre's racquet. As a rifle and pistol
shot, Osbaldeston was supreme, once bringing down 98 pheasants with 100 shots and then
going on to collect 16 snipe with 16 shots.
Osbaldeston was only 19 when, in the field of fox-hunting, he challenged England's top cross-
country horseman, Dick Christian [1779-1862], to a race over a dangerous four-mile course in
Derbyshire. The wager was 1000 guineas. Osbaldeston collected the debt by practically riding
Christian into the ground. He then calmly returned to his six-day-a-week fox-hunting stint.
On the very day he was released from hospital after a spell of 18 months on his back allowing
shattered bones to mend after another rider's horse fell on him, Osbaldeston was back in the
saddle.
'In 1831, when the squire was 45, he was one of a group of sporting blades in a London club
when the conversation turned to a recent 190-mile ride from London to York in 10 hours.
Osbaldeston scoffed at this feat and assured his companions that he could beat the time.
General Charretie at once bet the sportsman 1000 guineas he couldn't do it. When the rules
of the ride were drawn up, it was agreed Osbaldeston must stop only to change horses, but
he could use as many mounts as he wished. The squire decided to use his own hacks, as well
as several racehorses owned by his friend John Gully. Not only did Gully lend his horses without
charge, but he bet a fortune at 10-1 that Osbaldeston would break nine hours for 200 miles.
At 7 am on November 5, 1831, Squire Osbaldeston set out on his epic ride. Just eight hours
and 42 minutes later, he finished the course [He did not ride from York to London, but around
the Newmarket racecourse, using 28 horses].
'The squire was an equally brilliant coachman and a member of the Four-in-Hand Club which
conducted races from London to Brighton for bets of more than 10,000 guineas. There was a
time when another club member, Paul Methuen [later 1st Baron Methuen] laid Osbaldeston
Brentford [other sources say Greenwich]. The driver of the regular coach was the notorious
Hell-Fire Dick, a reinsman of England-wide fame. Not that Dick's reputation for speed deterred
the squire. But, Methuen said, Osbaldeston must carry a substantial load and he must provide
this ballast himself. Osbaldeston chose 20 heavily built guardsmen. By the time the soldiers
were all aboard, the squire's coach was sitting heavily on its springs, and by the time the race
was half over the guardsmen were wishing they had never come. Never had coach passengers
been so terrified. With Osbaldeston whipping his horses to ever greater effort the coach
bucked, swayed and skidded over the pot-holed roads, doing everything except capsize.
Reaching Brentford at last, Osbaldeston saw his fear-stricken passengers stagger into an inn
to steady their nerves. Just 20 minutes later Hell-Fire Dick came into view in a swirl of dust.
'George Osbaldeston was also a champion sculler and once licked the famed waterman Tom
Watson in a race on the Thames. It was a tragic day for Watson's supporters because they
had laid out 20,000 on their man and saw the lot go by the huge margin of more than 100
yards.
'As a pistol shot and duellist, the short, nuggety Osbaldeston probably had no peer in all
England. Certainly he was better than the imperious turf tycoon, Lord George Bentinck. At
Heaton Park races in September 1843 [although the Dictionary of National Biography and
other reliable sources say 1831], Osbaldeston won a 400 bet from Bentinck, but after several
months the nobleman still hadn't paid up. When, at Newmarket, Osbaldeston demanded he be
paid the sum, Bentinck insultingly handed it over by counting out the money in single notes.
The result was a demand from Osbaldeston, per medium of a messenger, for a duel or an
apology. When his lordship sneeringly declined to be a party to such childishness and ordered
the messenger to pass his comment on to his master, Osbaldeston exploded: "You go back and
tell Lord George at once that I will pull his nose the first time we meet." Bentinck, to save his
honour, agreed to the duel in Wormwood Scrubs, with his friend Colonel Anson as a biased
umpire. Indeed, the colonel was so biased that he arranged with his friend to break the rhythm
of the count to three to let Bentinck get off the first shot. Bentinck did just that - and missed.
Osbaldeston then fired and blasted his opponent's hat off. Honour satisfied, the squire
immediately left the field of battle.
'Although the squire was a brilliant pugilist, he decided to back-pedal smartly when one day his
friend John Gully suddenly lost his temper with him and jumped to his feet, fists raised.
Osbaldeston forgot about his own fists and grabbed a poker instead, and that was when a
friend intervened and restored peace. Actually, Osbaldeston was so good with his fists that,
although an amateur, he had to find opponents in the professional ranks to give him a worth-
while match. Once, behind a London tavern, he took on the notorious brawler Dick Curtis, and
in the 45th round hit his opponent with a mighty blow that laid him unconscious for almost half
an hour. When Curtis came to, Osbaldeston gave him 100 because he had "put up a good
scrap."
'Wrestling was another of the amazing squire's sports, but like everything else he did, he
plunged into the sport's finer points like a champion. In 1833 he won 200 from the Lancashire
champion Hunter after pinning his opponent just two minutes after the bout began. The squire
was also one of England's most sought-after prize-fight referees and controlled the Tom
Cannon-Clem Ward battle in 1825 for the championship of England. In 1845 he officiated at the
Bendigo-Gaunt set-to for the same title. Immediately he gave the fight to Bendigo, Gaunt
supporters charged into the ring to get at the referee. But Osbaldeston, with the aid of a set
of brass knuckles gave such a good account of himself that the mob turned and retreated.
'As the squire's sporting skill was eroded by advancing years, so did gambling and unscrupulous
estate managers make inroads into his fortune. He sold his estate, moved to London, married a
widow and settled down to a peaceful old age. Squire George Osbaldeston, one of the most
versatile sporting figures the world has known died at his St.John's Wood residence in London
in 1866. He was 79.'
Evan Frank Mottram Durbin, MP for Edmonton 1945-1948
Evan Durbin drowned while rescuing one of his children from a heavy sea. 'The Times' report
below appeared on 4 September 1948.
'Mr. Evan F. M. Durbin, Labour M.P. for Edmonton and Parliamentary Secretary to the
Minister of Works, was drowned yesterday while going to the assistance of one of his
children in a heavy sea at Crackington Haven, near Bude [on the northern coast of
Cornwall]. The accident occurred at about 11.30 a.m., half-an-hour before low water.
'Mr. Durbin, who was on holiday with his wife and their three children, was on the beach at
Strangles, near Crackington Haven, some 10 miles south of Bude. With them were friends,
including Professor Thomas Humphrey Marshall, of the London School of Economics, and his
wife. One of Mr. Durbin's children and another child were paddling in the water near some
rocks. The beach at low water is very treacherous because the strong undercurrent
creates deep pot-holes near the rocks.
'Mr. Durbin saw that the children were in difficulties and went out to them. They appeared
to be getting into deep water. He brought one of the children on to the beach, but by this
time his daughter had been carried out a short distance from the rocks. He returned to her,
brought her back to the rocks, and placed her in a position of safety.
'Mrs. Durbin by this time had scrambled across the rocks and gone to the water's edge.
While she was attending to her daughter Mr. Durbin was being carried out to sea by the
strong receding undercurrent. By the time Mrs. Durbin had turned around to see how her
husband was faring, he had disappeared.
'The police at Stratton, near Bude, were informed and searched at low water, but did not
succeed in recovering the body. They hoped to continue the search when the tide again
receded before darkness fell, and if unsuccessful then, intended to search again this
morning.
