George C. Boase.
George Clement Boase, fourth son of Henry Boase, was
b. at 127 Sloane street, Chelsea 25 Aug. 1810, and privately
bapt. by the Rev. C . Edgecombe ; he was educated at the
Exeter Grammar School then under the Mastership of Dr.
Collins, from thence he proceeded to Queen's College,
Cambridge, where he resided 1828-29 but not sufficiently
long to take a degree. He then went down to Dundee to
visit his elder brother Charles, cashier of the Dundee New
Bank, the result of which was that in the summer of 1830
he became a clerk in the Bank, and in August 1832 the
directors deeming it desirable to have a confidential clerk to
take the cashier's place in his absence, he was offered the
appointment and became also a partner in the Bank. As
before stated, under C. W. Boase, the Dundee New Bank
was amalgamated with the Dundee Banking-Co. in January
1838, and the Dundee Bank Directors wishing to relieve
themselves of part of their duties, resolved in April 1840 to
make C. W. Boase, manager, G. C. Boase succeeding him
as cashier, a position which he held until the amalgamation
in February 1864 of the Dundee Bank with the Royal Bank
of Scotland, when he became sub-manager, (George Mac-
kenzie, accountant, being made cashier), and so continued
until 21 Dec. 1867, when he retired on a pension. Like C.
W. Boase, he, in the commencement of 1836, joined the
body now generally known as the Catholic Apostolic
Church and was ordained to the Priesthood in October of
that year. About twelve months after giving up business,
that is in the autumn of 1 868, he removed to Brighton to
take the charge of the Church there. G. C. Boase is the
author of several theological tracts, etc., and has been the
composer of many fugitive poems. An account of some of his
writings will be found in the Bill. Cormib. i. 28. He m.
22 Dec. 1835 at Carolina Port, Dundee, Jane Smyth, fourth
dau. of William and Alison Lindsay. Of his issue we pro-
pose to speak of (a) George William, (I) William Lindsay.
( a J George William, eldest son of Geo. Clement Boase,
was b. Dundee 6 Feb. 1837, and began his education under
the Rev. Alexander Sterling, Tay square, Dundee, subse-
quc ntly attending for a short time a private school kept by
the Rev. T. G. Torry Anderson, in Hawkill place, and
afterwards the Dundee Public Seminaries or High School
from 1S47 to 1850. He went to Gothic House, Rottingdean,
(Mr. Arthur Orlebar's) in September 1850, but from bad
health had to leave at Midsummer 1851. He then attended
the higher classical and mathematical classes at the High
School, Dundee, during 1852 and 1853, and on the 12th
September in the latter year entered the Dundee Bank as an
apprentice, and after passing through the ordinary routine
was appointed secretary 14 April 1862, and in February
1864, on the occasion of the amalgamation of the
Dundee Bank with the Royal Bank of Scotland became
cashier, which position he still holds, (Mr. Mackenzie,
cashier, having been promoted to be manager on the retire-
ment of Messrs. C. W. and G. C. Boase in Dec. 1867.) He
m. 2 Dee. 1874 at St. Mary Magdalen Church, St. Leonards,
Sussex, Florence second dau. of the late Rev. Cuthbert
Orlebar of Nottingham, sometime Vicar of Podington,
Bedfordshire, by Eleanor, eldest dau. of John Kingston,

fl>) William Lindsay Boase, second son of Geo. Clement
Boase, was b. Dundee 2 May 1841. He was educated at
the High School, Dundee, until 1856, when he went for a
year to Luxembourg, and in 1857 to Gothic Hall, Clapham.
In 1858 he entered the office of the late James Bayford,
Esq., Proctor, Doctors Commons, and in the same year
obtained a clerkship in the Probate Office, where he re-
mained until the spring of 1861. In May 1861 he pur-
chased from Alexander Easson, Esq., a factory at Johns-
haven, Kincardineshire, for the manufacture of hemp sacking
by hand looms, and subsequently from the same gentleman,
the Maxwelltown Factory, Dundee. In 1868 he joined the
firm of Boswell and Co., hemp spinners, Leven, and in 1869,
when Edward Boase was admitted a partner, the name of
the firm was altered to Small and Boase. On 1 Dec. 1875
he purchased from Small and Boase their factory and
business at Rockwell Works, Dundee, and carries on these
works, and also the factories at Johnshaven and Maxwell-
town, in partnership with Mr. Thomas Murdoch who was
admitted a partner in 1871, under the firm of W. L. Boase

1823 he published as his diploma thesis Disputatio Medico,

editing the third and fourth volumes of The Selector, or
Cornish Magazine, a periodical to which he contributed
various articles. During 1835 he published a pamphlet
entitled HniU on the exercise of the elective franchise. This
work was in reference to the contested election for Penryn
