Research Note: TRAGEDY AT WILPSHiRE
MAN OF INDEPENDENT MEANS FOUND SHOT
A shocking tragedy was discovered at Wilpshire, near Blackburn, last night, when Mr. Walter Halstead, a gentleman independent means, living at Prospect Villas. Wilpshire. was discovered dead with a revolver in his right hand and with a bullet wound in the temple.
He had been missing from home since last Wednesday morning, but Mrs. Halstead, his wife, did not feel uneasiness on that account, as he had been in the habit of staying away from home. She had no knowledge that he possessed a revolver, and he had never threatened to do anything to himself.
Mr. Halstead, who was 51 years of age, belonged to a well-known Blackburn family. He was formerly connected with Paradise United Methodist Church. At one time he was in business as a licensed victualler at Wilpshire Hotel.
The discovery was made by John Henry Wilson, a farm servant at Stepping Hey Farm. He was engaged spreading manure in a field at Parsonage Farm, which adjoins Wilpshire Moor, on which the body was found. On looking over a stone wall he saw the body lying on the ground behind the wall. Wilson thought the man was asleep, but on going to him saw that he was dead, the body being quite still. Four the five chambers of the revolver were loaded and in the other was a spent cartridge. Mrs. Sarah Ellen Catlow, of Stonehouse Nook Farm, saw the deceased walking in the direction of Reservoir at 7 a.m. on Thursday. She was apparently the last person to see him alive.
In deceased’s pocket was a morning newspaper dated last Thursday, and 5s. 3d, in money.10

Research Note: AN ACT OF INGRATITUDE
Edward Bourne, a tramp, was charged with stealing two ferns, one geranium, three flower pots, and a whitewash brush, at Scotforth, on the 22nd inst the propeity of William Halstead.— Supt. Moss said about ten o'clock on Tuesday morning the prisoner presented himself at Mr Halstead's nursery grounds on the Greaves, stating that be was hard up and out of employment. He made a very pitiful represents tion to Mr Halstead, and stated that he wanted employment, so that the latter was induced to give him a job. Prisoner commenced work about noon on Tuesday, and worked to that hour on Wednesday and then he went away, without assigning any reason or saying he was not coming back. About half past eight on Thursday evening Mr Halstead's foreman happened to be in the greenhouse attending to some work, when he saw prisoner pass. He went out to him, when the latter said Mr Halstead had sent him for his day's wage. The foreman thought it rather strange, but said he would not give him his wage, and ordered him to leave the place. As Bourne was going away he noticed his pockets appeared bulky, and saw also a flower sticking out of one of them. He seized him and gave him into custody, and it was then found that he had three flower pots and plants in his pockets. It was afterwards ascertained that he had been at Mr Halstead's garden on Thursday morning, and taken a whitewash brush away. This he took to the Boundary Inn in the afternoon, and the landlady, Mrs Jacobson let him have a glass of beer on it, retaining the brush. The brush had been identified by Mr Halstead and though it was difficult to swear to plants yet the ferns were of a peculiar kind, Mr Halstead only having four of them at first. He had three left when prisoner went to work for him, and there was one in the grounds now, the places where the other two had been standing being vacant, so that there would not be much difficulty in proving that the ferns prisoner bad in bis possession were those missing from Mr Halstead's garden. — Evidence in support of the above statement having been called, prisoner pleaded guilty, and was sentenced to four months' imprisonment with hard labour.9
In the census of 3 April 1881 at 4 Parkfield Terrace, Scotforth, Lancashire, William was listed as a widower, aged 50 born Settle, Yorkshire, the Head of Household; a Nursery and Seedsman, living with his daughter Sarah Eleanor and nephew George Herbert HARDACRE.10 In the census of 5 April 1891 at 25 Nab Lane, Blackburn, Lancashire, he was listed as a widower, a Retired Nurseryman, aged 61 born Settle, Yorkshire, the uncle of Barnes BUTTERWORTH.11
William's death was registered in 1899 in the Fylde registration district.12
