SCOTT ALEXANDER WALKER (1800-1883) entomologist and entrepreneur was born on 10 November 1800 in Bombay India son of Dr Helenus Scott and his wife Augusta Maria née Frederick. Educated at Bath Grammar School and Peterhouse Cambridge (B.A. 1822; M.A. 1825) he entered Lincoln's Inn but discarded a legal career for speculation as a merchant. On 17 January 1827 he arrived at Newcastle New South Wales in his ship Australia. This and voyages to the colony in 1829 and 1831 proved financially disastrous. In 1829 he took up a 2560-acre (1036 ha) grant on Ash Island in the Hunter River and in 1831 with his mother and sister he returned as a settler. He bought land between Newcastle and Maitland. From Newcastle House built in 1837 on the harbour front at Newcastle he supervised the establishment of an iron-foundry forge and patent slip at Stockton and the construction of large tanks on Moscheto Island where sea-water was used to supply salt for Sydney. He grew tobacco and flax on the Maitland farms and oranges on Ash Island. In 1842 Ludwig Leichhardt visited the island found it 'a romantic place' and noted the artesian bore. In 1844 Scott presciently financed detailed plans for a railway between Newcastle and Maitland and was undeterred by Governor Gipps's comment that 'the colony was not sufficiently advanced to entertain such important works'; he advocated a tramway to Singleton and in 1853 became a shareholder in the Hunter River Railway Co. taken over by the government in 1855. Scott's original project became part of the Great Northern Railway.

From his father a distinguished physician and botanist Scott had acquired a deep interest in the natural sciences and in 1835 became the founding treasurer of the Newcastle Mechanics' Institute which had a library and museum. He was an original member of the Australian Club a magistrate warden of the first Newcastle District Council in 1843 a trustee of Christ Church and later a founder of the Newcastle Corps of Volunteer Rifles; in these activities he conformed to the traditional pattern of behaviour so important to his brothers Robert and Helenus and their fellow exclusives although his friends were drawn from a wider range of colonial society.

In 1856 Scott was elected to the new Legislative Assembly for Northumberland and Hunter; he held his seat in 1858 won Northumberland in 1859 and the Lower Hunter in 1860. A liberal he favoured the secret ballot and an extension of the franchise. In 1861 he resigned from the assembly to accept nomination to the Legislative Council where he was inactive and resigned on 1 May 1866. His appointment as a land titles commissioner on 4 June did not stave off bankruptcy in November caused by his business incapacity and generous hospitality. He resigned as president of the Victoria Club and had to sell Ash Island already heavily mortgaged.

Scott had given up Newcastle House and made Ash Island his home after his marriage on 29 December 1846 to Harriet Calcott (d.1866) the mother of his daughters Harriet and Helena; he welcomed distinguished artists and scientists there and devoted his time increasingly to entomology. In 1862 he was a founding member of the Entomological Society of New South Wales next year a councillor and president in 1866 and from 1868. He published seven papers on butterflies and moths in its Transactions and the first volume of Australian Lepidoptera and Their Transformations … (London 1864) illustrated by his daughters was followed by Mammalia Recent and Extinct (Sydney 1873). On the initiative of Helena the second volume of his Lepidoptera was completed and published in five parts 1890-98 by the Australian Museum. An active trustee of the museum in 1864-66 and in 1867-79 he was involved in the dismissal of Gerard Krefft. In 1876 he became a member of the Royal Society of New South Wales.

Scott died of liver disease at Paddington on 1 November 1883 and was buried in the Anglican section of Waverley cemetery. He left his estate valued for probate at £1602 to his daughters and step-daughter Mary Ann Calcott. Scott Street Newcastle was named after him and a pencil drawing of him by his friend Edwin Landseer is in the Art Gallery of New South Wales.

His daughters Harriet (1830-1907) and Helena (1832-1910) artists and naturalists were born in Sydney Helena on 11 April 1832. Educated by their father on Ash Island they acquired a considerable knowledge of Australian plants animals and insects. They collected for and corresponded with leading colonial scientists. Their many paintings of Australian insects earned high praise from members of the Entomological Society and after the publication of Australian Lepidoptera they were elected honorary members.

In 1864 Helena married Edward Forde and next year accompanied him on a survey of the Darling River between Wentworth and Bourke. She made a collection of fodder grasses and of specimens for her proposed 'Flora of the Darling' but Forde died of fever at Menindee on 20 June 1866 and she returned to Sydney transferring her collections to Rev. William Woolls who used them for a section of his Contribution to the Flora of Australia (Sydney 1867). Harriet and Helena received commissions from the Macleays William Macarthur E. P. Ramsay and Sir Terence Murray and for some years provided almost all the figures for the scientific literature produced in Sydney notably J. C. Cox's Monograph of Australian Land Shells (1868) and Krefft's Snakes of Australia (1869) and Mammals of Australia (1871). They also designed Christmas cards with Australian themes for commercial production while Harriet's drawings of native flowers and ferns graced the 1884 and 1886 editions of The Railway Guide of New South Wales.

In 1882 Harriet married Dr Cosby William Morgan but the marriage was unhappy. She died at Granville on 16 August 1907. Helena whose letters reminded Murray of 'what letter writing was in the Augustan days of England' died at Harris Park on 24 November 1910.

21 A son of Robert Sidney 2nd Earl of Leicester and the great-nephew of Sir Philip Sidney he is thought to have been born at Penshurst Place in Kent. All of his life Sydney had been consistent in his support of liberty. He had served in the New Model Army though he opposed the decision to execute Charles I. He was for a time the lover of Lucy Walter later the mistress of Charles Prince of Wales. In the end Oliver Cromwell's absolutism was little better for Sydney than that previously practiced by the king. His dismissal of the Long Parliament in 1653 subverted the republic and the constitution. In retirement Sydney was bold enough to outrage the Lord Protector by putting on a performance of Julius Caesar with himself in the role of Brutus.

A republican by deep conviction he was abroad when the monarchy was restored in 1660 choosing to remain in exile for some years. While writing Court Maxims (1665-6) he was busy negotiating with the Dutch and French for support of a republican invasion of England. He was only to return in 1677 almost immediately becoming involved in opposition to Stuart monarchial absolutism. When Charles dismissed his final Parliament in 1681 saying he would have no more Sydney united with Shaftesbury and others in plotting against the perceived royal tyranny of a 'force without authority.' Sydney was later to be implicated in the Rye House Plot a scheme to assassinate Charles and his brother though on the evidence of only one witness.

Recognizing that a conviction rested on the testimony of two witnesses Sidney pled the law and demanded a second witness be produced in court against him; at that juncture his own writings were offered into evidence as "false seditious and traitorous libel". "An argument for the people" said the Solicitor General "to rise up in arms against the King". In response Sydney said that it was easy to condemn him by quoting his words out of context: "If you take the scripture to pieces you will make all the penmen of the scripture blasphemous; you may accuse David of saying there is no God and of the Apostles that they were drunk." But for the court to write such was to act. The republican aristocrat was found guilty of treason and sentenced to death. Neither denying nor affirming the charge of treason for which he had been condemned Sydney maintained republican faith to the end declaring on the scaffold: "We live in an age that makes truth pass for treason."

29 Adela de Normandie was a nun circa 1122 at Cluniac Priory Marcigny-sur-Loire France. de Normandie, Adela (I8866)
30 Adelaide of Normandy (or Adeliza) (c. 1030 - bef. 1090) was the sister of William the Conqueror and was Countess of Aumale in her own right.

She was the daughter of Robert the Magnificent,[a] Duke of Normandy and born c.1030[1] Elisabeth Van Houts, in her article Les femmes dans l’histoire du duché de Normandie (or Women in the history of ducal Normandy) mentions Countess Adelaide as one of those notable Norman women who were known to have exerted a strong influence on their children especially with regard to passing on their own family history.[2]

Adelaide's first marriage to Enguerrand II, Count of Ponthieu potentially gave then Duke William a powerful ally in upper Normandy.[3] But at the Council of Reims in 1049, when the marriage of Duke William with Matilda of Flanders was prohibited based on consanguinity, so were those of Eustace II, Count of Boulogne and Enguerrand of Ponthieu, who was already married to Adelaide.[4] Adelaide's marriage was apparently annulled c.1049/50 and another marriage was arranged for her, this time to Lambert II, Count of Lens, younger son of Eustace I, Count of Boulogne forming a new marital alliance between Normandy and Boulogne.[5] Lambert was killed in 1054 at Lille, aiding Baldwin V, Count of Flanders against Emperor Henry III.[6] Now widowed, Adelaide resided at Aumale, probably part of her dower from her first husband, Engurerand, or part of a settlement after the capture of Guy of Ponthieu, her brother-in-law.[b][5] As a dowager Adelaide began a semi-religious retirement and became involved with the church at Auchy presenting them with a number of gifts.[5] In 1060 she was called upon again to form another marital alliance, this time to a younger man Odo, Count of Champagne.[7] Odo seems to have been somewhat of a disappointment as he appears on only one of the Conqueror's charters and received no land in England; his wife being a tenant-in-chief in her own right.[7]

In 1082 King William and Queen Matilda gave to the abbey of the Holy Trinity in Caen the town of Le Homme in the Cotentin with a provision to the Countess of Albamarla (Aumale), his sister, for a life tenancy.[8] In 1086, as Comitissa de Albatnarla,[8] as she was listed in the Domesday Book, was shown as having numerous holdings in both Suffolk and Essex,[9] one of the very few Norman noblewomen to have held lands in England at Domesday as a tenant-in-chief.[10] She was also given the lordship of Holderness which was held after her death by her 3rd husband, Odo, the by then disinherited Count of Champagne; the lordship then passed to their son, Stephen.[8] Adelaide died before 1090.[11]

Adelaide married three times; first to Enguerrand II, Count of Ponthieu (died 1053)[12] by whom she had issue:

Adelaide II, Countess of Aumale, m. William de Bréteuil, Lord of Bréteuil, son of William FitzOsbern, 1st Earl of Hereford.[8]

She married secondly Lambert II, Count of Lens (died 1054),[11] they had a daughter:

Judith of Lens, m. Waltheof Earl of Huntingdon and Northumbria.[13]

Adelaide married thirdly in 1060 Odo II, Count of Champagne (d. aft. 1096),[14] by whom she had a son:

Stephen, Count of Aumale.[14]
