Death of Sir J.P. Kay-Shuttleworth

We regret to announce the death of Sir James Phillips Kay-Shuttleworth, Bart., which took place this morning at his house, 68, Cromwell-road, South Kensington. Sir James was born in 1804, was educated at Scotch and foreign universities, and was for some time secretary to the Committee of Council of Education, in which post he was mainly instrumental in establishing a system of school inspection by officers appointed by the Government. On his resigning his office in 1849, he was created a baronet. In 1864 he was High Sheriff of Lancashire, of which county he was a magistrate and Deputy Lieutenant, and in 1870 he received the honorary degree of D.C.L. from the University of Oxford. He married in 1842 Janet, only daughter of the late Mr. Robert Shuttleworth, of Gawthorpe Hall, Lancashire, and at that time assumed the additional name of Shuttleworth by Royal licence. He is succeeded by his son, Mr. Ughtred James Shuttleworth, M.P. for Hastings.
