Obituary:

Charles L. Croxen
Charles L. Croxen 88, a career missile machinist for Hughes Aircraft Company died peacefully in his sleep May 7, 2012 at his Tucson home. Born in Tempe of pioneer parents, Fred Croxen Sr. and Edith Lamport Croxen, he spent his early childhood years in then remote Payson, where his father was the Forest Service ranger. Former Gov. Mouer was the attendant physician at his birth. Charles was a proud Army veteran of the Third Army (Patton) with the recon Troup of the 71st Infantry Division. He liked to recount a close-call in an engagement with German machine gun troops at the Rhein River that left him bullet holes in his open field jacket, passing through as he bailed out of his jeep. Later in 1947 while with the University of Arizona ROTC he was awarded an athletic "A" for rifle marksmanship. He was widowed in 1986 by the passing of his wife, Betty (Haas) Croxen, of 32 years. He is survived by his son, James R. Croxen, Tucson and his daughter, Janie Ringelberg (Joe); two granddaughters, Emily Ringelberg, a missionary in Minhsiung, Taiwan, Dollie Ringelberg of Pinetop; a brother, Fred Croxen, Jr. of Flagstaff and cousin, Patricia P. Stephenson of Tucson. An early post WWII occupation included employment on the Coronado N.F. ad a Bigalow Fire Lookout and crew cook in the Catalina Mountains. Charles had a lifelong interest in hiking and backpacking in Arizona and was an active member of the Tucson Corral of the Westerners for over 40 years. At family gatherings he enjoyed the reputation of his expert Dutch oven sourdough biscuits and frequently shared many stories of his early days in Arizona. He and his interesting stories will be missed. A Memorial Service will be held in the chapel of Trinity Presbyterian Church, 400 E. University Boulevard on Sunday, July 29, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. to be followed by a gathering of family and friends in the church fellowship hall. He will be interred at East Lawn Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, please remember Charles with a donation to the Tucson Chapter of the Tucson Corral of the Westerners, P.O. Box 40744, Tucson, AZ 85717-0744. Arrangements by FUNERARIA DEL ANGEL.

Charles Thurstan Fogg-Elliot
Charles Thurstan Fogg-Elliot
Published in Vanity Fair, 22 March 1894. Fogg-Elliot, Charles Thurston - “Fogg” - by 'Spy' (Sir Leslie Ward):

'Unlike most ‘Varsity oars he does not come from Eton, but reflects credit on Durham School, where he first learned to pull under the winged words of Mr. R.H. Poole; who had himself gone through the mill at Oxford before he rowed bow of the Dark Blue Eight fourteen years ago. From Durham he went to Trinity Hall in the October term of 1890, got into the Cambridge Eight at No. 7 in the year following; sat on the same thwart for two years, was “promoted” to No. 3 last year, and rowed at No. 6 on Saturday: whence it is clear that he can row on either side of a boat. On the Cam he has won the University Fours and Pairs, and he has also rowed at the Head of the River; though last year, as Captain of the Hall Boat Club, he rowed in the second boat and suffered bumps. At Henley, too, he has had his successes, having helped to win the Visitors’ for his College, and rowing No. 3 in the high class Leander Eight which carried off the Grand Challenge last year. Having achieved so much he was very properly chosen President of the Cambridge University Boat Club, when Mr. G.C. Kerr, of Trinity (also, oddly enough, a Durham man), left that pinnacle of aquatic fame vacant last summer. For he is generally held to be both a good oar and a good fellow.

He is a very strong young man, whose hair and moustachios are as white as his face is sometimes red; and, like most of our strong young barbarians, he is quite a good-tempered fellow. He is known as “Fogg,” and he is a puzzle; for it is impossible to tell where his forehead ends and his nose begins. Yet is he quite a popular boy, who is not nearly so fierce as he often looks. He was only beaten last Saturday because the Oxford crew were better than his own.

He has occasional flashes of dry humour; and he thinks that he can wrestle.'

After his appearance in Vanity Fair, Charles Thurston Fogg-Elliot (1870-1955) completed his rowing career by racing for Trinity Hall in the 1896 Grand. After university, he became secretary to Lords Barnard and Curzon, Curzon noting that Fogg-Elliot’s taciturnity and flowing yellow mustache made him seem “like of forlorn Viking.” In the 1914-18 war he was Captain in the Fourth Battalion of the Durham Light Infantry.

Christianshaven Kanal, Copenhagen in morning light
Christianshavn
Christianshavn is an artificial island neighbourhood located in Copenhagen, Denmark. It was founded in the early 17th century by Christian IV as part of his extension of the fortifications of Copenhagen. Originally, it was laid out as an independent privileged merchant's town with inspiration from Dutch cities but it was soon incorporated into Copenhagen proper. Dominated by canals, it is the part of Copenhagen with the most nautical atmosphere.

For much of the 20th century a working-class neighbourhood, Christianshavn developed a bohemian reputation in the 1970s and it is now a fashionable, diverse and lively part of the city with its own distinctive personality, with residents tending to see themselves first as Christianshavners and then as Copenhageners.[1] Businessmen, students, artists, hippies and traditional families with children live side-by-side

Church of St. George, Fovant
Church of St. George, Fovant
The earliest record of the existence of a church in Fovant is a grant of land that was made to a local priest in 901 A.D. It is likely that a Saxon wooden church existed on or near the site of the present church, but no evidence remains. By the time of Domesday, Fovant was owned by the Convent at Wilton. The church at this time was a Norman building; the only remaining part of this is the framework of the priest’s door in the exterior of the south wall.

By the 15th century the church was in need of rebuilding. It was built in the Perpendicular style, and it was at this time that the tower and south aisle were built. On the north wall of the chancel is a small monumental brass which records that George Rede, Rector of Fovant, was responsible for the building of the tower in 1492. The decorative open work frieze at the top of the tower is a fine example of late Perpendicular stonework and has retained its original design despite repairs.

When Henry VIII began to close the monasteries in 1539, the last Abbess at Wilton, Cicely Bodenham, was allowed to live in the manor house next to the church, along with 31 of her nuns. Most of the convent’s estates, including those at Fovant, passed into the ownership of the Earls of Pembroke, who built Wilton House on the site of the convent. The south aisle in the church was rebuilt in the 16th century by the Abbess.

When Sir Richard Colt Hoare visited the church in the 1820s he described it as having a nave with two side aisles, a chancel, chantry chapel, porch and tower. The church also housed the village school room in the chapel. The church was (and still is) 71’ 6” long and the nave is 27’ 9” wide. At this time it was big enough to seat 210 people.

By 1863 the church was in a general state of decay and in need of rebuilding. T.H. Wyatt, the consultant architect for churches in the Salisbury diocese, was given the task of carrying out the alterations, which were mainly in the interior. One of the problems with the old church was that it was too small. The 1861 census figure for Fovant was 600; by rearranging the interior layout, Wyatt increased the seating in the church from 210 to 348 people.

The chancel was completely rebuilt by Wyatt. He replaced the chancel arch and pulled down the musicians’ gallery; the gallery doorway opening on the south side of the arch can still be seen. The wall separating the chapel from the south aisle was removed and this part of the east end became the vestry. The roofs of the nave and chancel are wagon-headed and were originally painted blue. The north aisle is separated from the nave by an arcade of four pointed arches resting on Norman piers remaining from the earlier church fabric.

The tracery of the west window in the tower, which depicts the four Evangelists, is typical of late Perpendicular style. The stonework of the other windows has mostly been renewed, but the two in the south aisle, with their flat tops, may be early 16th century. The wooden screen between the nave and the tower is a good example of Early English work.

Although there are now six bells in the tower, there were only three in 1553, of which one remains. Two bells were added in 1674. The fifth, originally cast in 1627, was recast in 1863. Bells one to three were recast in 1874. The sixth was a gift given in 1980 by Miss Hanham, a former headmistress of the school. All the bells were retuned and rehung at the same time. The one remaining original bell is the fourth which was cast at a foundry in Salisbury in 1400.

Outside in the churchyard are a number of war graves. Many date from the First World War when there was a large training camp and military hospital at Fovant. These soldiers either died from their wounds or were victims of the post-war flu epidemic. Some of them came from Australia. The eagle lectern and litany desk in the church were placed there in 1923 in memory of the 63 British and Australian soldiers who died in the Fovant camp hospital and were buried in the churchyard.

Today Fovant parish is part of the Nadder Valley Team Ministry. The Rector at Fovant also looks after the churches in Sutton Mandeville, Teffont Evias, Teffont Magna and Compton Chamberlayne. The parish registers for Fovant dating from 1541 (apart from those currently in use) can be viewed at the Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre.
