Jenny Carrister, The Heroine of Lucknow-Mine
A HEROIC story I will unfold,
Concerning Jenny Carrister, a heroine bold,
Who lived in Australia, at a gold mine called Lucknow,
And Jenny was beloved by the the miners, somehow.

Jenny was the only daughter of the old lady who owned the mine-
And Jenny would come of an evening, like a gleam of sunshine,
And by the presence of her bright face and cheery voice,
She made the hearts of the unlucky diggers rejoice.

There was no pride about her, and day after day,
She walked with her young brother, who was always gay,
A beautiful boy he was, about thirteen years old,
And Jenny and her brother by the miners were greatly extolled.

Old Mrs Carrister was every inch a lady in her way,
Because she never pressed any of the miners that weren't able to pay
For the liberty of working the gold-field,
Which was thirty pounds per week for whatever it might yield.

It was in the early part of the year 1871,
That Jack Allingford, a miner, hit on a plan,
That in the mine, with powder, he'd loosen the granite-bound face,
So he selected, as he thought, a most suitable place.

And when all his arrangements had been made,
He was lowered down by a miner that felt a little afraid,
But most fortunately Jenny Carrister came up at the time,
Just as Jack Allingford was lowered into the mine.

Then she asked the man at the windlass if he'd had any luck,
But he picked up a piece of candle and then a match he struck;
Then Jenny asked the miner, What is that for?
And he replied to blast the mine, which I fear and abhor.

Then with a piece of rope he lowered the candle and matches into the mine,
While brave Jenny watched the action all the time;
And as the man continued to turn round the windlass handle,
Jenny asked him, Isn't it dangerous to lower the matches and candle?

Then the man replied, I hope there's no danger, Jenny, my lass,
But whatsoever God has ordained will come to pass;
And just as he said so the windlass handle swung round,
And struck him on the forehead, and he fell to the ground.

And when Jenny saw the blood streaming from the fallen man's head,
She rushed to the mouth of the shaft without any dread,
And Jenny called loudly, but received no reply,
So to her brother standing near by she heaved a deep sigh.

Telling him to run for assistance, while she swung herself on to the
hand-rope,
Resolved to save Jack Allingford's life as she earnestly did hope;
And as she proceeded down the shaft at a quick pace,
The brave heroine knew that death was staring her in the face.

And the rope was burning her hands as she descended,
But she thought if she saved Jack her task would be ended;
And when she reached the bottom of the mine she did not hesitate,
But bounding towards Jack Allingford, who was lying seemingly inanimate.

And as she approached his body the hissing fuse burst upon her ears,
But still the noble girl no danger fears;
While the hissing of the fuse was like an engine grinding upon her brain,
Still she resolved to save Jack while life in her body did remain.

She noticed a small jet of smoke issuing from a hole near his head,
And if he'd lain a few seconds longer there he'd been killed dead,
But God had sent an angel to his rescue,
For seizing him by the arms his body to the air shaft she drew.

It was a supernatural effort, but she succeeded at last,
And Jenny thanked God when the danger was past,
But at the same instant the silence was broke
By a loud explosion, which soon filled the mine with smoke.

But, oh, God be thanked! the greatest danger was past,
But when Jenny saw Jack Allingford, she stood aghast,
Because the blood was issuing from his nest and ears,
And as Jenny viewed his wounds she shed many tears.

But heroic Jenny was not one of the fainting sort,
For immediately to the mouth of the mine she did resort,
And she called loudly for help, the noble lass,
And her cry was answered by voices above at the windlass.

So there were plenty to volunteer their services below,
And the rope was attached to the windlass, and down they did go,
And Jack Allingford and Jenny were raised to the top,
While Jenny, noble soul, with exhaustion was like to drop.

And when the miners saw her safe above there was a burst of applause,
Because she had rescued Jack Allingford from death's jaws;
So all ye that read or hear this story, I have but to say,
That Jenny Carrister was the noblest heroine I've ever heard of in my day.

But in any case, because of Irish sensibilities there was no conscription
in
Northern Ireland - with the net result that more men from South than from
the North served in the British army during World War II.

ulster has 9 counties, 6 are in the british controlled northern ireland.
any one who thinks ulster isn't used as a catch phrase for NI is mistaken
and your anology is typical of a frostback, mistaken.
when my reletives from ireland call someone an ulsterman then mean a prot

it was to take powder stockpiled for use against the brits. every
town had its powder house. the one in my town still stands.
the

militia did not become the colonial army. although many men served.
regiments were raised for the continental army in a similar manner
to the civil war. the colonel was apppinted by the colonial
governor and the men were sworn in as regulars for a specified term
and subject to regular military discipline and rules..

militia units were still used during the war, appearing when trouble
threatened and dispersing to home when it passed.

And exactly the same applied to the Virginia Regiment.

the virginia regiment was more like a continental regt than a militia
unit.

That's what I meant.

well then you should have added the comment under the bit about continentals
and not under the militia bit.

Lines in Memoriam Regarding the Entertainment I Gave on the 31st March,
1893, in Reform Street Hall, Dundee
'Twas on the 31st of March, and in the year of 1893,
I gave an entertainment in the city of Dundee,
To a select party of gentlemen, big and small,
Who appreciated my recital in Reform Street Hall.

The meeting was convened by J. P. Smith's manager, High Street,
And many of J. P. Smith's employes were there me to greet,
And several other gentlemen within the city,
Who were all delighted with the entertainment they got from me.

Mr Green was the chairman for the night,
And in that capacity he acted right;
He made a splendid address on my behalf,
Without introducing any slang or chaff.

I wish him success during life;
May he always feel happy and free from strife,
For the kindness he has ever shown to me
During our long acquaintance in Dundee.

I return my thanks to Mr J. P. Smith's men,
Who were at my entertainment more than nine or ten;
And the rest of the gentlemen that were there,
Also deserves my thanks, I do declare.

Because they showered upon me their approbation,
And got up for me a handsome donation,
Which was presented to me by Sir Green,
In a purse most beautiful to be seen.

Which was a generous action in deed,
And came to me in time of need.
And the gentlemen that so generously treated me
I'll remember during my stay in Dundee.

Will,

The record of the house of Gournay. By Daniel Gurney. (1845) pp. 222.
During her tenancy of the manor of Mapledurham-Gurnay as her dower,
Matilda de Gurnay obtained the wardship of land of the heir of Roger de
Kingston, who had held in Kingston, com. Berks, one fief of the Honour
of Dudley belonging to Roger de Someri, and she took to her second
husband Roger de Clifford, of Bridge Sollers, com. Heref.

A History of the County of Berkshire: Volume 4 (1924), pp. 349-353.
Parishes: Kingston Bagpuize
From William son of Ansculph the overlordship of the second manor of
Kingston descended with the manor of Bradfield, (fn. 55) of which these
lands were held in 1502. (fn. 56)
Adelelm held under William son of Ansculph in 1086. (fn. 57) He is
called Adelelm de Kingston in 1113, (fn. 5Cool and was presumably ancestor
of the succeeding owners of the manor. About 1240 Maud de Gournay,
perhaps wife of Hugh de Gournay who died in 1239, (fn. 59) held a
knight's fee in 'Kyngeston Rogeri' as guardian of the heir of Roger de
Kingston, (fn. 60) and a John de Kingston purchased half a hide of land
here from John Pygate in 1248. (fn. 61) The Kingstons were succeeded by
the family of Fokeram; (fn. 62) William de Fokeram, tenant in 1272, must
have been the William de Fokeram who alienated half the advowson of
Fyfield to the Prior of Poughley. (fn. 63) In 1290 his son William
quitclaimed to William de Birmingham, lord of Maidencourt, and his heirs
the remainder of a messuage, 2 carucates of land and 100s. rent here
which his father and mother Ellen held for life with remainder to
himself. (fn. 64)
Footnotes:
59 Hannay, Norman House, 198.
60 Testa de Nevill (Rec. Com.), 122. The date is fixed by the death of
Robert Achard, lord of Aldermaston (q.v.) and by the grant of Basildon
(q.v.) to Robert de Guisnes.
61 Feet of F. Berks. 32 Hen. III, no. 18.

Extracting:
About 1240 Maud de Gournay, perhaps wife of Hugh de Gournay who died in
1239, (fn. 59) held a knight's fee in 'Kyngeston Rogeri' as guardian of
the heir of Roger de Kingston, (fn. 60)

1242/3 Book of Fees Vol II. BERKS. 1242-1243. p. 844
Roger de Clifford' de terra que fuit Rogeri de Kingeston' in eodem
[Kingeston'] j. feodum
---------------------------------------------------------------------- --

You wont get any other Contemporary Primary scources apart from these!

Abt. 1240 Maud de Gournay held the knight's fee previously held by
Roger de Kingston .

1242/3 Roger de Clifford held the same knight's fee.

Roger married Maud/Matilda the widow of Hugh de Gournay.

Incidentally, Henry Gurney was a dab hand at quoting contemporaneous
primary sources. Check out his 3 books on Google Books.

Sitat:


------------------------------------------------------
You're quoting a work from 1845, we need to see the original primaries to
see if actually she maybe held a *moiety* of the manor which was later granted.
Also she could have *bought* her sister's half. These sorts of things
can't really be properly worked out through old secondary sources who weren't
terribly apt at quoting their sources exactly.
