Death of Miss Frederica Watts: The death of Miss Frederica Watts, at her residence, “Langton House,” Castlethorpe on Monday, marks the passing of the past member of the family which for many generations has taken a prominent part in the religious, social and philanthropic activities of North Bucks. Seventy-seven years of age, Miss Watts, was a sister of the late Mr. E. H. Watts, J.P., of Hanslope Park, who in his day was a generous benefactor and true friend to the people of Hanslope and Castlethorpe. The deceased lady, during her ten years residence in Castlethorpe, had never associated herself with public work, but her kindly disposition gained for her the high regard and affection of the village people, by whom her death is much regretted. For four months last year she was seriously indisposed, but recovered from that illness sufficiently to be able to leave the house. On December 22 she went to London to spend Christmas with friends. There she suffered a recurrence of the earlier illness and her condition was such that she was brought home to Castlethorpe by motor car. Since then she had been confined to her bed and passed to rest, as stated, on Monday last. Her remains were cremated at Golders Green Crematorium on Thursday and the casket of ashes was brought back the same evening to Castlethorpe for interment in the family vault in Hanslope Church yesterday (Friday) afternoon.
