Bagot, Edward Arthur (1854–1930)

The Rev. Edward Arthur Bagot, who died in a nursing home at Brighton, England, on Sunday, at the age of 79 was once a resident of South Australia. He was the only son of Mr. Edward Bagot, of Kildoon, County Kildare, Ireland, who, in addition to being a noted civil engineer, was also a learned doctor of laws and doctor of divinity of Dublin University. He was ordained in the Church of England, and married Harriet Lillian Massy-Dawson in 1891. In the same year they came to Adelaide, where they stayed until 1894. They then left for Western Australia, and remained there for five years, part of which period was spent on the newly opened goldfields at Kalgoorlie and Coolgardie. In 1899 they returned to England. His wife died in 1901, leaving three children, all of whom were born in Australia. He later married Miss Frances Spencer Churchill Hamilton, by whom there were two sons. Although too old for active service when the Great War broke out, he joined the London National Guard (the 'Old Crocks' Regiment) and performed useful territorial duties. For some time he had been in failing health, and lived in retirement in Brighton. He survived his second wife, and left one daughter, Mrs. A. T. J. S. Pollard, wife of Major-General Pollard, now living at Crondall, Hampshire, and four sons, of whom the eldest, Mr. E. D. A. (Alec) Bagot, resides in Adelaide. The second, Mr. A. G. D. (Guy) Bagot, is manager of a tea estate in Ceylon, and the two youngest, Messrs. Edward and Arthur Bagot, live in England.
