23 Obituary from The Temiskaming Speaker:
Frederick Joseph Harman of New Liskeard died suddenly at the Temiskaming Hospital on June 9, 2000.

Mr. Harman was born in Heaslip Township on July 4, 1916 to George and Cordelia Harman. Educated at Evanturel Township Public School, he worked for a local lumber company and owned a market garden. On February 14, 1941 he married Elizabeth (Lily) in Kirkland Lake.

Mr. Harman was a dedicated husband and father of five children. He loved being surrounded by his family and friends. He was well respected by those who knew him in the work place, his church and community. He was also a faithful member of the Haileybury Pentecostal Assembly.

Mr. Harman is survived by his wife Lily, son Steve (wife Iris Wark), daughter Joyce (Morley McNeil), son Glen (Hope Babcock), daughter Bonnie (Robert Hobbs), son Dale (Sherrilyn Houghton), 12 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren; and by his brother Syd and sisters Dora and Elsie.

He was predeceased by his brother Floyd.

Funeral arrangements were made by Perrin Funeral Chapel with the service conducted at Haileybury Pentecostal Assembly by Reverend Sam Sibly.

Pallbearers were grandchildren Laurie and Murray Harman, Jeff and Matthew Harman, Scott and Calvin McNeil, Honourary Pallbearers were Jim Harman, Ken Walker, Leo St. Don, Fred Ball, Ira Kraynyk and Bob Nobes.

Eulogies were delivered by his sons Stephen, Glen and Dale Harman with solo by granddaughter Kerry Hobbs, accompanied by grandson Laurie Harman on piano.

Burial is at the New Liskeard Cemetery.

Friends and family attending the service came from Kincardine, Whitby, the Ottawa area, Cobourg, Toronto, and the Englehart and Tri-Town area.
*********************************************************************************

Fred and Lily were married in Kirkland Lake, Ontario Canada. Fred worked on the Harman farm where their first son Stephen was born Dec. 17, 1941. Fred went to Toronto for the spring work. He had a house on the farm in Toronto at Todd Morden Mills. He went south on a truck with their belongings. Lily and son Stephen went down on the train in May 1943 to join Fred. Joyce was born June 19, 1943 in Toronto.

Colleen Campbell, Lily's sister, was working in Toronto doing housekeeping before Fred and Lily moved down. She went to the farm at Todd Morden Mills often to visit. Later Colleen worked in a factory.

A second son, Glen, was born in Toronto. Fred and Lily moved back to New Liskeard and bought a farm on Highway 65 from Charlie McRoberts, Lily's brother-in-law. The family lived in a small house that used to be a garage while building a house. Stephen started school. It was a cozy little house. The kids walked two miles with other area kids to the public school at Chester's Corners.

A second daughter, Bonnie, was born at Georgina McRobert's house. Aunt Gena's house was located where the Highway 11 overpass is now. Later Madouse Ayotte bought the house and moved it to its present location.

29 The 1871 Census lists Horatio as a shoemaker, age 36, of Brithton.

The 1881 Census of England lists Horatio Cuo Constable as a shoemaker, age 46, of London. His daughter Rose's marriage certificate gives his full name as Horatio George Constable. The Cuo is likely a transcription error of Geo, short for George.

The 1891 Census lists Horatio as a bootmaker, age 57, of Sussex.

Father: George Constable, Shoemaker, journeyman aged 23 years, born London.
No previous children, married at Glasgow in 1854.

her first child.
Registered on 9 October by Rosana Constable, who made her mark.
1855 Calton, Glasgow 644/4 1334

*********************
Note by Derek Ward regarding Horatio's father:
The 1881 Census of England has a George CONSTABLE aged 72 born Lindfield, Sussex, occupation Boot & Shoemaker living at Boughton under Blean. This is a small village just outside Canterbury. This might be Horatio's father and may be the connection that took Horatio to Canterbury.

The 1871 Census shows son Edward as born in Canterbury. This would indicate that that Horatio and Rose were in Canterbury by 1858. Their first child John had been born in 1855 in Glasgow.

36 In the 1841 Census of Chailey, Sussex, England RO 107-1113,
John Alcorn, 65, is listed as a Brickmaker with his wife Frances, age 50.
Living in the same house hold in South Common is William Alcorn age 50
Mary Alcorn, age 25
Mary Alcorn, age 4 
John ALCHORN
 
37 John Alchorn the elder died in 1775 and from his will it becomes clear that he had four sons, all of them brick makers. George, John and Abraham were living in Isfield, but Thomas had moved to Chailey, where he had taken over the brickyard of John Siffleet, who had died in 1759. It is possible that there was a family connection, as John Alcorn the elder had been one of the appraisers of Siffleet's probate inventory. The Isfield brickyard was sold to Thomas Best in 1795 and the Laughton yard, although still owned by an Alchorn had gone out of use by 1841 but the Chailey business prospered. Thomas Alchorn died in 1815 and was succeeded by his son John, who advertised regularly from 1828 onwards. In 1835, he was named as executor of the will of Thomas Best, who had sold the Isfield yard in 1801 and moved to Hamsey.
On the census returns of 1851, John Alchorn was stated to be 75 years old, still working as a master brick maker and employing three hands but by 1859 he had been succeeded by his nephew William, the last brick maker in the family, who advertised until 1887 
John ALCHORN
 
38 Mary ALCHORN FOORD, appears to be having her last child at the age of 63. The PR's have been searched and John Kay of Ringmer has searched, as well as others and nothing proves that she had all those children - and nothing shows us that she died and Thomas FOORD married another Mary- so we assume that she was the mother of all those chldren. Good for her! Mary ALCHORN
 
39 Thomas Alchorn moved to Chailey, where he had taken over the brickyard of John Siffleet who died in 1759. In 1841 the Chailey brick yard business had prospered. Thomas Alchorn died in 1815 and was succeeded by his son John, who advertised regularly from 1828 onwards. In !851, John was listed to be 75 years old, still working as a master brick maker and employing three hands. In 1859 he was succeeded by his nephew William, the last brick maker in the family, who advertised until 1887. Thomas ALCHORN

47 Bert Allcorn was born on 21st May 1887 in Lewes and moved to Ringmer in 1898. He was educated at Ringmer School from 19th April 1898 until he left with a labour certificate on 22nd December 1899. At that time he lived with his parents and twin brother Frederick at Clayhill, prior to them moving to Swingate. He later married Kate and they lived at The Briars, Lewes Road, Ringmer.
A Regular seaman, Stoker 1st Class Herbert Allcorn served for five years in the Royal Navy followed by a further three years in the Reserve. This involved a commitment to recall with the colours in time of National crisis and for annual training. Because of the growing international tension it had been announced in Parliament in March 1914 that a test mobilisation would replace the usual manoeuvres that year. Bert reported for duty on 13th July and it was anticipated that the various fleets would disperse on 23rd July. Unfortunately it was on that day Austria presented its provocative ultimatum to Serbia which finally lit the fuse to the Great War. The dispersal orders were delayed and quietly the fleets increased their preparedness for and defences against a possible war, whilst all diplomatic measures to avoid conflict proceeded apace. Diplomacy as we now know failed and War was declared on 4th August 1914. [11pm London = Midnight 4th/5th Berlin Time].


Stoker Allcorn was drafted to H.M.S. Good Hope. An armoured cruiser of 14,100 tons from the ‘mothball fleet’ she had been launched in 1901. Capable of 23.5 knots, her crew were mostly reservists. She carried two 9.2" and sixteen 6" guns plus torpedoes. The cruiser sailed on 6th August for Newfoundland to intercept armed German merchant ships in the area. By 16th August Good Hope had been ordered south towards Panama under Rear Admiral Sir Christopher Cradock’s flag and she was later joined by other units on 14th September. These were the armoured cruiser Monmouth of 9,800 tons plus two smaller ships. One was the light cruiser, Glasgow of 4,800 tons and the other a former liner mounting a few obsolete guns. The new quarry by now was far more dangerous than any armed merchantman.
The escape into the vastness of the Pacific Ocean by the German East Asia Squadron, from its base at Tsingtao, Northern China, was causing great anxiety in the Admiralty. That squadron, under the very able Admiral Graf von Spee, consisted of several modern cruisers. Two, especially the Scharnhorst and the Gneisenau, were better armed, better armoured and better equipped than anything Cradock had at his disposal. They exercised regularly as a fighting force and were expert in naval gunnery, ammunition being plentiful for training. Various units were periodically detached from the main force to wage war independently. The German plan was to disrupt the allied trade with Australia, New Zealand and India. In this task elements of von Spee’s force were eminently successful. It became imperative to find and destroy the German fleet and to this end many ships were deployed across the seas.
Cradock’s fleet was assigned the task of searching the southern ocean. It proceeded to the Falklands before scouring the dangerous waters around Cape Horn looking for the enemy. His quest took him into the Pacific. Cradock had repeatedly requested reinforcements in the shape of H.M.S. Defence, a modern and powerful battle-cruiser. This was denied him and instead the Admiralty formed a second cruiser squadron to which Defence was attached, and assigned that new force the southern Atlantic to patrol. Cradock was ordered into the Pacific and allocated instead an obsolete and worn out battleship, H.M.S. Canopus. She was more of a hindrance than a help as she was too slow to keep up with the other ships in the event of a chase. Every reported sighting was investigated and the strength of intercepted radio signals from some of the German ships meant that they were not too far distant.
At 4.20pm on 1st November 1914 the two fleets caught their first glimpses of each other. Admiral Cradock frantically radioed for Canopus to try to catch up. It was a hopeless task as she was some 250 miles behind. Each squadron commander sized up the situation and tried to manoeuvre for best position. The British attempted to open the engagement early with the sun behind them in the hope of a swift victory. The Germans who would have had to look into the sun avoided battle at that time. As the day wore on however, the sun began to set and presented the British fleet in sharp silhouette against the horizon. The German ships were by now almost invisible in the gathering gloom and finally sought to commence the inevitable battle from their tactical advantage.
The Scharnhorst scored a direct hit with her third salvo and destroyed the forward 9.2" main turret of Good Hope. Three minutes later Monmouth was set on fire by Gneisenau’s accurate gunnery. The British ships fired all available guns but with little serious effect except for a couple of damaging hits on the Gneisenau by Monmouth. Gradually the superior German gunnery and battle tactics began to tell. By 7.35pm von Spee estimated the Good Hope had been hit thirty times. She was on fire in several places but still fighting. She even tried to close on Scharnhorst so as to launch a torpedo attack. The German ship kept its distance and continued to shoot. Shortly after dark the brilliant flash of a massive explosion came from the area where H.M.S. Good Hope had last been seen. Nothing was ever found of her and Admiral Cradock, together with the entire ship’s compliment of 900 men, perished. Stoker 1st Class Herbert Allcorn naturally has no known grave and he is commemorated on Portsmouth Naval Memorial. His medals were sent to his widow who was pregnant with their son at the time of her husband’s death. It is interesting to note that the young lad was christened Herbert Henry Hope on 7th February 1915 after his father and his father's ship.
