    IT is with great regret that we have to record the death of Mr. Edmund Gustavus Bloomfield Meade-Waldo, of Stonewall Park, Chiddingstone, Kent, who died on February 24, aged seventy-nine years. Only son of Mr. Edmund Waldo Meade-Waldo, of Hever Castle and Stonewall Park, he was born at Holly Brook, Co. Cork, on February 8, 1855, and educated at Eton and Magdalene College, Cambridge. His room at Eton was a menagerie of wild animals, and rumour has it that, while at Eton, his overpowering ambition was to kill one of the red-deer in Windsor forest, and that this ambition was fulfilled. In 1880 he married Ada Coralie, a daughter of the late Lord Justice Baggallay, and he and his wife went to live for some time at Rope Hill in the New Forest. The New Forest, as was only natural, brought out all that passionate love of Nature and animal life which had already begun to show itself at Eton.
