James John Holroyd , Rev

b: 28 SEP 1800
d: 3 FEB 1876
From 'A Branch of the Holroyd Family' by Thomas Holroyd, 1879:

The Reverend James John Holroyd, of White Hall, near Colchester, Rector of Abberton, whose death was announced in our impression of last week, was born in 1800, and was the fifth son of that eminent Judge, the late Sir George Sowley Holroyd, for many years one of His Majesty's Justices of the Court of Kings Bench. The late Mr Holroyd was educated at Harrow School, and afterwards entered Christ College, Cambridge, where he obtained a Scholarship; he took his B.A. degree in 1830, when he was Captain of the Poll, and proceeded to M.A. in 1835. He was presented to the Rectory of Abberton by the late Lord Lyndhurst, in whom as Lord Chancellor the patronage was vested, and continued the faithful Pastor of the parish for the long period of 46 years.

He was a scholar; he excelled in modern languages -- especially German; his opinions in matters of religious faith were firm, but moderate; he was a ready speaker, courteous in demeanour, and not unmindful that the office of a Clergyman ought to be filled by a gentleman. He married, in 1833, Sophia, eldest daughter of the late Samuel Tysssen, Esq, of Narbrough Hall, Norfolk, who pre-deceased him. Of a numerous family, two sons, Captain Thyssen Holroyd and Captain F. H. Graham Holroyd, and two daughters (one married to Lieutenant General Street, C.B. and the other to Lieutenant Colonel Emilius Delmé Ratcliffe of the 88th Regiment,) survive him. He died on the 3rd February, and was buried at Abberton on Tuesday last. The mourners were confined to the immediate members of the deceased's family; but many old friends attended at the grave as a mark of respect to his memory, while several were prevented from being present. (From an Essex paper of the day.)
