The Bucks Standard 07 August 1880

The late R. R. Walpole, Esq. We regret that our obituary contains the death of this gentleman, which took place at Brighton on Wednesday week last, where he had gone to recruit his failing strength. Mr. Walpole was for many years a justice of peace for the county of Buckingham, and sat with the Bench of Magistrates at Newport Pagnell, and also at Stony Stratford, where his legal advice – having qualified as a barrister – was of great assistance in settling complications which invariably arose out of the conflicting evidence generally brought before them at the Petty sessions. The remains of the deceased gentleman were brought to Wolverton on Tuesday last, and from thence conveyed to Castlethorpe, where they were consigned to their last earthly resting place, in the presence of the sorrowing relatives who had assembled to take a last fond look at the remains of him who had been most dear to them.
