Shire of Normanby

The Shire of Normanby is a former local government area in the south-east of Queensland, Australia. Its administrative centre was in Harrisville. On 11 November 1879, the Mutdapilly Division was created as one of 74 divisions within Queensland under the Divisional Boards Act 1879. On 25 October 1890, part of the Mutdapilly Division was excised to create the Normanby Division. With the passage of the Local Authorities Act 1902, the Normanby Division became the Shire of Normanby on 31 March 1903. On 29 January 1949, a new Local Government Act was enacted to further amalgamate local government in the Ipswich area, abolishing the Shires of Normanby and Rosewood; the City of Ipswich was enlarged to include the more urban parts of the Shire of Moreton. The Shire of Moreton was enlarged by the inclusion of the northern part of the Shire of Normanby and all the Shire of Rosewood; the southern part of the Shire of Normanby was transferred to an enlarged Shire of Boonah. 1891: Thomas Robertson 1909: R.

James Hales

Sir James Hales was an English judge from Kent, the son of the politician and judge John Hales. Though a Protestant, he refused to seal the document settling the crown on the Protestant claimant Lady Jane Grey in 1553, during the following reign of the Catholic Queen Mary opposed the relaxation of the laws against religious nonconformity. Imprisoned for his lack of sympathy to Catholicism and subjected to intense pressure to covert, in a disturbed state of mind he committed suicide by drowning; the resulting lawsuit of Hales v. Petit is considered to be a source of the gravediggers' dialogue after Ophelia drowns herself in Shakespeare's play Hamlet; the eldest son of John Hales, Baron of the Exchequer and lord of the manor called The Dungeon at Canterbury, his wife Isabel Harry, he had three brothers and a sister: Thomas, of Thanington. Edward, of Tenterden, who married Margaret Honywood, the daughter of his uncle John Honywood, of Sene in Hythe, was the grandfather of Sir Edward Hales, 1st Baronet.

William, of Nackington. Mildred, who married as his first wife John Honywood of Sene in Hythe, his father was a bencher of Gray's Inn, he was admitted as a student there between 1517 and 1519, being elected an ancient of the Inn in 1528. By 1530 he was acting a counsel in the Court of Requests, in 1532 became a bencher of Gray's Inn. In 1541 he was appointed counsel to the corporation of Canterbury, was an adviser to Archbishop Thomas Cranmer. In 1544 he was appointed King's Serjeant, shortly thereafter King Henry VIII granted him the manor of Clavertigh in Elham, which he sold after 1547. At the coronation of King Edward VI in 1547 he was appointed Knight of the Order of the Bath, in 1549 was appointed a Justice of the Common Pleas. Hales supported the Protestant reformation, in 1551 was among those who gave sentence of deprivation against Bishop Stephen Gardiner. However, in 1553 he was one of three judges who refused to seal the document by which John Dudley, 1st Duke of Northumberland attempted to settle the crown on the Protestant Lady Jane Grey.

When Mary became queen instead, greater tolerance towards Catholics was expected, Hales pointed out in a charge to a jury at the Kent assizes that the statutes against Catholics had not been relaxed and that the jury must find according to the law as it stood. In October 1553 the Queen renewed his post as a Justice of the Common Pleas but the Lord Chancellor, the reinstated Bishop Gardiner, refused to take his oath and instead sent him to jail, he was held in the King's Bench Prison, the Counter prison in Bread Street, in the Fleet Prison. During his months of captivity, he underwent repeated attempts to make him adopt Catholicism, he complied but, after doing so, tried to commit suicide with a penknife. In April 1554, the Queen ordered that Hales be released, in some sources he is said to have been brought to her presence and given "words of great comfort". By however, his mental condition was so unsettled that on 4 August of that year, while staying at Thanington near Canterbury with his nephew, he drowned himself by lying face down in a shallow stream.

A coroner's inquest determined. He was commemorated by an inscription in his parish church of St Mary Bredin at Canterbury. In 1558 his widow instigated legal proceedings against Cyriac Petit to recover a lease of land in Graveney marsh, made in 1551 to herself and her late husband. Since the coroner had earlier ruled Hales' death to be a felony, the case of Hales v. Petit turned on the abstruse point of whether the felony of committing suicide had occurred during Sir James' lifetime or after his death. In 1562 the court ruled in favour of Petit. Edmund Plowden published a full report of the case in 1571. Held up as an extreme example of abstract legal reasoning, it is probable that Shakespeare alludes to the case in the play Hamlet with the gravediggers' discussion after Ophelia drowns herself in a stream: First Gravedigger Give me leave. Here lies the water. Second Gravedigger But is this law? First Gravedigger Ay, marry, is't, he married twice, his first wife being Mary and coheiress of Thomas Hales, a merchant of the Staple from Abingdon who in 1491 had acquired the manor of Fillets Court in Henley-on-Thames, his wife Agnes.

Their children included: Humphrey, who married Joyce, daughter of Robert Atwater of Royton by Lenham, was the father of Sir James Hales. Edward, who followed his father and elder brother in a legal career. Mildred, who married Thomas Docwra and heir of Thomas Docwra, Grand Prior of the Knights Hospitaller. Mary, who in about 1534 married Wiliam Ryther, of Harewood Castle, an esquire of the body to Queen Mary, was mother of the MP James Ryther. Jane, who in about 1547 married Walter Mantell, the son of her stepmother Margaret, executed at Sevenoaks in 1554, after his death Christopher Carlell, of Monks Horton. Elizabeth, who married John Gayson. Frances, who in 1554 married Walter Hendley, of Coursehorn in Cranbrook, his second wife was Margaret and coheiress of Oliver Wood, of Collington, widowed twice. Her first husband was Sir Walter Mantell of Nether Heyford in Northamptonshire, two of her sons had been executed: John Mantell for felony in 1541, Walter Mantell in 1554 for his part in Wyatt's rebellion, as was her grandson Walter Mantell, son of
