Derbyshire Advertiser and Journal - 8 January 1858
DEATHS.Harris. —At the Royal Hotel, Madras, on the 14th of Nov. last, seventeen days after giving birth to a son who survives her, Alicia Mary, the wife of Claudius Harris, Esq., 8th Light Cavalry, and only daughter of the late Walter Augustus Shirley, D.D., Bishop of Sodor and Man, and of Shirley, Derbyshire, the 24th year of her age. Her early (and yet not premature) departure, after one year only of married life, will be most acutely felt not only by her surviving relatives in England, but also by an unusually wide circle of attached and loving friends, whom her peculiar sweetness of disposition, as well os her many admirable and uncommon mental qualties, had strongly endeared her. Her loss will also long be deplored among the poor of her own country parish, who all times found in her a charitable benefactress and friend. Sbe died, she had always lived, brightly shining example her sex, Christian woman of most Catholic and unsectarian mind, looking only unto Jesus, who was indeed the Finisher, as lie had already been the Author of her Faith.
