The death of Sir WILLIAM RAIMOND CODRINGTON, Bart., took place at Chateau de
la Boullaye, his residence at Montfort, in Brittany, on the 17th Dec., at
the age of 67 years.  The deceased was the only son of the late Sir WILLIAM
CODRINGTON, third baronet (who died in 1816), by his wife ELEANOR KIRKE, and
was born at Rennes, in Brittany, in the year 1806.

In 1828 he married ANNE MARY, daughter of Mons. JOSEPH LE FER BONABON, of
St. Maloes, his eldest son by her being WILLIAM CODRINGTON, who now becomes
fifth baronet.  The new baronet was born in 1829, and married, in 1866,
MARY, daughter of ROBERT ROSKELL, Esq., of Park House, Fulham.  The title
was created in 1721, and the first baronet's cousin, who was Governor of the
Leeward Islands, left the sum of £10,000 to All Soul's College, Oxford, to
erect and furnish a libarary.  He also bequeathed an estate of £2000 per
annum to the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts, in
order to erect and endow a college at Barbadoes, which bears his name.
