"Gen. Advertiser, March 15. An account of a meteor on December 31, 1741; by the Rev. Mr. Wm Gostling, Minor Canon of the Cathedral Church of Canterbury; inserted in support of the supposition of an Airquake in the said paper of the 31st. See p. 125. About one in the afternoon I found my house violently shaken for some seconds of time, as if several loaded carriages had been driving against my walls; and heard a noise, which at first my family took for thunder, but of an uncommon sound. For my own part (as I thought thunder which could shake us at that rate, would have been much louder) I concluded it an earthquake; and, going immediately to the top of my house, found the sky cloudy, but nothing like a thunder cloud in view; only there was a shower of rain from he eastward presently after, and the coldest that I have felt. I thought it the shock of an earthquake, as I told you before; but since find it was attended (and I suppose caused) by a ball of fire, which passed with great rapididty over our country, from westward to eastward, for how long a journey I cannot tell. It began with two great blows, like the reports of cannon (which the jumbling of my sashes prevented my distinguishing); and then rolled away till it was heard no more. The appearance, I hear, was as that of a very large shooting-star; and it left a train of light, which soon disappeared, it being noon-day. I met a pilot today coming from Deal, whom I asked about it, and he told me he saw no fire-ball, but heard the noise, and that it made the ship shake he was in, going from Gravesend to Nore. Canterbury, Dec. W.G.
Further accounts of this phaenomenon, from Sussex, Newport in the Isle of Wight, and London, may be seen in Phil. Tranf. for that year."

Norwich, December 5. About 7 in the evening, ther happened a sudden storm of hail and rain, with a flash of lightning that burst into several parts, resembling balls of fire which fell in many parts of the city, followed instantly by a clap of thunder not distinguishable from the explosion of a single piece of Cannon but did no harm. From Canterbury we learn, that a like Phaenomenon happend there, but the Ball of Fire penetrated the Spire, singed the floor of one of the stages, beat down some bricks and plaster, lest some marks of violence on the side of the building, and after passing nine stagings, forced its way out at the bottom of the tower, doing but little damage.

October 11th, Between the hours of one and three in the morning, the palace of his grace the archbishop of Canterbury was broke open, and plated, as it is said, to the value of two thousand pounds taken away; to secure which , his grace had lately removed a door that led into the plate rooms, and had caused the passage to be bricked up with a wall eighteen inches thick. By this alteration, it is supposed, the villains came to the knowledge of the rooms where the plate was deposited, a part of which was the property of Mr. Eden, who, before he went abroad, lodged it in the palace as a place of great security. Finding it impossible to get over the wall with the booty, the thieves picked the lock of the garden door next the river, and it is thought conveyed away their prize in a boat moored along side the bishop's walk for that purpose. Not any of the family were alarmed, nor the robbery discovered until the servants rose, when the hole in the wall, which was the size of the mouth of a large oven, betrayed the fact. A letter was found in the palace, evidently dropped by one of the depredators, without an address, signed Joseph, but no surname. The contents of the letter is, that the house of the writer's master has been broke open, but the family being alarmed, the men had gone off without effecting their purpose, and left behind them a sack, and some implements for house breaking. This epistle being taken to Bow street, and the books examined, the house to which the letter alluded was known, information of the circumstance having been given at the office after the intended robbery. The gentleman being waited on, immediately knew the hand-writing of the letter to be that of a servant named Joseph, whom he had lately discharged, on an idea of his being concerned with the persons who broke into his house. But nothing has yet been discovered by it.... Annual Register 1788 pg 217/18

"ART. XXXII. Experiments to investigate the Variation of Local Heat. By James Six, Esq:
These experiments were made with thermometers of Mr. S.'s own new construction, placed in 3 different stations, viz. one on the top of the high tower of Canterbury Cathedral, about 220 feet from the ground; another at the bottom of the same tower, at about 110 feet; and a third in Mr. Six's own garden, not more than six feet from the ground, and all carefully exposed to the open air, in a shady Northern aspect. "The heat of the days always exceeded that at the middle, and still more the heat at the upper station." This difference might have been expected. Not so the finding the cold of the night at the lowest, not only equal to, but, very frequently, exceeding the cold at the highest stations. To discover whether these variations would continue the same in winter, &c. on December 19, 1783, Mr. Six placed on thermometer in his garden, one on the top of the high tower, as before, and the third at the top of St. Thomas's Hill, about a mile distant from the city, where, at 15 feet from the ground, it was nearly on a level with that on the cathedral tower. His observations are annexed, in two tables. "In the daytime the several thermometers nearly agreed, but in the night he cold at the lower station exceeded the cold a the higher ones rather more than it did in September, when the weather was warmer." The different dispositions of the atmosphere in other respects, and the various state of the weather at the time of making those observations, with its effects on the instruments, are also noted. the most extra ordinary is the circumstance above observed viz. that "whenever the sky became clear, the cold seemed to arise from the earth, and to be found in the greatest degree, as long as it continued clear, in the lowest situation." Mr. Six then describes the valley in which Canterbury Cathedral stands, and suggests some useful discoveries which may possibly result from experiments of this kind." The Gentlemen's Magazine 1785

"July 30th, death at Canterbury aged 84, Mrs. Mary Hardress, only surviving daughter and heir of John H. esq. M.P. for Canterbury in the reigns of Queen Anne and George I; a major in the army, and governor of Sandown Castle in Kent.." The Gentlemen's Magazine 1793
"At his house in Canterbury, James Six, esq. F.R.S. a gentleman well known to the lovers of science for his ingenious and successful pursuits in astronomy and natural philosophy; and whose natural genius and various abilities distinguished him, from the many, among those who were intimate with him, though his modesty kept him from that distinction his merit deserved. He was one of the French refugee families who settled at Canterbury in the reign of Queen Elizabeth, on account of the persecution of the Protestants in France, and established the silk trade there. Mr. Six was brought up to that business, but, on its decline, retired early in life, on a handsome competency, to pursue his love of science, and with care to educate his son and daughter. He was an eminent astronomer, having frequently made very accurate discoveries in that sublime study, which he communicated by occasionally corresponding with other astronomers all over Europe. He presented to the Royal Society an improved thermometer of his invention, described in their Transactions, vol. LXXII.; and an account of some experiments to investigate the variation of local heat, inserted in vol. LXXIV of the same work. These communications procured him the honour of admission into that learned body. He also made some useful experiments in electricity; and, having very good and expensive electrical machine, which he perfectly understood, he was ever ready to assist with practical skill whenever the medical opinion deemed that electrifying could be beneficial. He was also well known as a florist, and could, with peculiar beauty, taste, and precision, print the flowers he had reared, as well as use the pencil elegantly on other subjects, for amusement. His mind thus replete with variety of knowledge, he filled up the measure of his time, without having much to bestow, on general society, though his disposition was cheerful, communicative and philanthropic in the highest degree, which was evinced by his indefatigable attention to a Sunday school, principally instituted and zealously patronized, by him; which more especially he laboured to improve, and to which he dedicated his leisure hours more steadily, as a pious work to engage his thoughts at a period when the severe stroke of losing his only and very valuable and accomplished son oppressed his heart with the deepest sorrow. James Six, junior, M.A. of Trinity College Cambridge, had traveled with the son of Sir J Stanley, and was justly and highly esteemed by that family. He traveled a second time, and died, early in life, of a fever, at Rome, Dec 4 1786; where he was buried with peculiar honours, notwithstanding the general strictness of the Romish Church (see our vol. :VI. pp. 72, 90). His character being universally respected, a monument was erected there by Sir John Stanley, unknown to the parents of young Mr. Six, who have placed an elegant one in Westgate Church, Canterbury; to which also Mr. Six, with another gentleman,have given an organ, which accompanied the voices of the little chorister's, who were fostered by his care, encouraged in piety and industry by his precepts, and indulged by his benevolence in whatever contributed to their well doing in their humble station. By them and many more he will long be sincerely lamented, for he was a good man, an useful member of society, and a good Christian. He has left a disconsolate widow, and an only daughter, truly worthy of such a father's fond affection, and married to Mr. May, an opulent brewer at Maidstone." The Gentlemen's Magazine 1793

Her constitution naturally infirm, but more impaired by repeated illness, had rendered her incapable, for many years, of mixing with society from home; yet she was not on this account deserted by a most respectable number of frineds, who daily endeavoured to lessen the tedious hours of confinement. There needs no pompoes panegyric to say, that her life was valuable, and every other encomium may centre in adding that as her ears were always open to the voice of distress and promition of public good, her heart and hand went together for benevolent and charitable purposes. She has left to regret her loss a most indulgent husband, whose longer protracted years, it is to be hoped, will not be imbittered by any future calamity.

At the late election for Canterbury, a question was agitated whether freemen who had received any relief within a year, were thereby disqualified to vote. Mr. Serjeant Marshall clearly showed, that poverty was no disqualification at common law, and could not be pleaded unless warranted by the immemorial usage of the place; and that, consequently, as no such usage had ever prevailed at Canterbury, a pauper had the same right to vote as any other freeman. It was determined accordingly, that all voters of this description should remain on the poll. - The Monthly Magazine 1796 pg. 436

At St. Dunstans, near Canterbury, in the family of Mr. Thomas Chatwine, shopkeeper the following distressing circumstance took place. The man, his wife, and three children each in the morning took was was supposed to be cream of tartar and brimstone as physic; the effect, however, soon proved deleterious, as the whole family were affected with such alarming symptoms, that the most skilful medical assistance proved inefectual; one of the children died in the afternoon, in the evening another, and at night their mother. The father, after lingering eight days also expired. The infant having taken but a very small quantity of the mixture is the only one expected to survive. This melancholy event was occasioned by a fatal mistake in mixing sugar of lead with the brimstone, instead of cream of tartar; the sugar of lead having very imprudently been kept in the house among some other articles.

During the course of a long and unimpeachable life, his mind was directed by a never swerving uprightness, and his conduct guided by the most unshaken and rigid integrity. In his communications with society, and in the more retired limits of domestic affection, his heart and his hand united in the strictest rectitude, the softest sensibility, and the tenderest philanthropy. When he doubted on any transaction, it was his invariable rule to examine arguments and consequences, by committing them to paper with scrupulous exactness. Hence it was that all his determinations were slow, but they were just. Retirement during his latter years afforded him an uninterrupted opportunity of indulging his strong propensity for theological and controversial studies. These he pursued with unwearied diligence, till within the last three months of his life. Herein the vigour of his mind discovered unabating ardour, and laborious investigation; and he was so entirely absorbed in this pursuit, that all other subjects seemed, like the passing insect of the hour, to flit beside him. Buthe was one of those whose theological studies do not confound their faith. Deeply read in Sacred History and Divine Revelation, he accepted the Christian dispensation with unfeigned gratitude. .....more" The Gentlemen's Magazine 1799 pg. 905&906

A farmer, near Canterbury, gave last week, a grand festival to his hop pickers as soon as they had finished their work; and distributed amongst them his old pickled pork and strong ale, with a hospitable hand. But, before the company departed, a large family silver spoon was missed, the suspicion fell, of course, upon some one or other of the guests. In vain did the lord of the feast intreat the restoration of his plate, and promise to think no more of the theft. All swore to their innocence, and no trace of the spoon could be discovered. At length, however, the farmer declared, that since no one would acknowledge and restore the spoon, he must have recorse to conjuring, in order to discover the thief. Accordingly, not the bird of Minerva, but a large black dunghill cock, was summoned from the poultry roost, and placed upon a table in the hall. A magic circle was drawn round him, with chalk; and after mumbling over him some cabalistical words, just as intelligible as the shanscrit to the guests, the nymphs in the festive parlour were desired to pass in succession, like Macbeth's kings; and each, as she passed, to stroke with her right hind the back of the sable chanticleer, and then to proceed onward to the next parlour, which was darkened. This done, the farmer followed them, with the cock, which he placed on another table; candles were brought; another magic circle encompassed the plumed oracle; another cabalistical incantation was uttered, and thrice the black emperor of the dunghill crowing annonced from his "shrill clarion" the spell completed. The nymphs were immediately ordered to hold up their right hands: nineteen appeared to be smutted with black; but the twentieth, a swarthy palm, though pure from blackness, proved that its owner, a sly young gipsy wench, was not equally pure from guilt. She tremblingly confessed the fact, produced the spoon, and begged forgiveness from the magician of the hop yard, acknowledging his superior skill in the black art. This miracle, like many others of great celebrity, was wrought by a simple stratagem; that of smearing the cock's back with lamp black and grease, and a strong reliance on the adage of Shakespeare, "that conscience makes cowards of us all;" and that, therefore, the real thief, in the superstition of her fears, would shrink, if possible, from the ordeal, and thus betray herself.

Her mind was richly endowed with liberal and religious knowledge, she had learnt very early in life to think for herself, and to act upon the purest principles; and in these she was zealously attached to the Established Church; a retired disposition lead her into the pursuits and habits of reflection, without being chargeable with any natural reserve for to those whom she intimately loved, she was always frank and communicative; her literary attainments constituted for her a rich source of pleasurable occupation and relief, during the greater part of a long life, devoted to the affecitonate duties attendant upon those most dear to her, whose declining health and years afforded her ample excercise for the sympathies of filial and fraternal love. The benevolence of her mind far outbalanced the limits of her slender fortune; but regularity and prudence enabled her to indulge in the luxury of doing good in the circle of her own neighbourhood; and some of the objects of her bounty have not been forgotten in her Will. This tribute to her merit may be reviewed without fear of controversy; and if she deserved sublunary praise, how grateful to her surviving relatives is the anticipation of her future reward!"

About thirty years after, the Bank suspended cash payments; and his Lordship, when upwards of eighty years of age, rode on his poney from Norton to Canterbury, publicly to demand his wager at the market table of the Alderman, which was instantly paid. At his death upwards of 40,000 guineas were found in his house."
