The late Mr John DAW
Exeter has lost one of her oldest and most respected citizens by the death of Mr John DAW, which took place on Wednesday last, at his residence Fonthill Villa, Mount Radford. Owing to increasing years and infirmities Mr DAW a few months since retired from all active pursuits, and has since been rapidly failing. The deceased was born in East Budleigh in 1802, educated at Honiton Grammar School, and was admitted as Attorney of the Kings Court at Westminster in 1823. During his long and eventful life he occupied many public and prominent positions. He filled the office of Mayor of Exeter during the years 1853-4 and 1854-6, and was for a lengthy period Recorder of Braduinch. His wise counsel has been of great benefit in the management of several of our city charities, and as late as the year before last he acted as President of the Devon and Exeter Hospital. One of the recreations of his active life was turned to practical account in his fondness of agriculture. This much-engaged lawyer farmed up to the time of his death an estate of 120 acres at Clyst St George, and probably took more pride in producing the crops of wheat than in winning law suits. His agricultural knowledge was placed at the disposal of the Bath and West of England Society, of which he was Vice-President. For many years he was sole clerk to the Trustees of St John's Hospital and the Church Charity Trustees, and since 1859 has been joint clerk to those bodies in association with his son, Mr R. R. M. DAW. He was the clerk of the old Court of Requests, and afterwards Registrar of the County Court, which office he resigned in 1865, on his son, Mr R. R. M. DAW, being appointed by Judge TYRRELL in his stead. When Judge TYRRELL was incapacitated by illness Mr DAW presided for him, and in his judicial capacity won golden opinions. His political services were principally displayed as an election-agent, in which position he was singularly successful. He acted for the late Sir Ralph LOPES in his contest for South Devon and received from the hon baronet a handsome gift of plate in recognition of his devotion and ability. He was also agent for Lord COURTENAY and Sir Lawrence PALK in stoutly-contested fights for East Devon, and conducted the last election for the Eastern Division in 1880, on behalf of the sitting members, Sir John KENNAWAY and Colonel WALROND. Last year he resigned the post of election-agent, receiving a cordial vote of thanks from the party for his past exertions.
At the meetings held during the past week the great esteem in which Mr John DAW was held has been made the subject of public testimony by Sir Stafford NORTHCOTE, Sir John KENNAWAY, and Sir John WALROND, by Mr W. J. FRIEND, as representing the solicitors practising in the County Court, and by the Judge of that Court, and the Governors of the Devon and Exeter Hospital at their weekly meeting on Thursday entered in the minute book a resolution expressing "their deep sense of the advantages which this hospital derived during many years from the care and counsel of the late Mr John DAW, and their sincere sympathy with his family in the loss which they have sustained."
Mr DAW married Miss LEWIS, the daughter of his schoolmaster, and he leaves three sons and four daughters. His eldest son, Mr John DAW, is the Registrar of the County Court at Southampton, his second son Mr R. R. M. DAW, is the Registrar of the Exeter Court, and his third son Mr George DAW, is a barrister at the Equity Bar. Of his daughters, two are unmarried, one is the widow of the late Mr H. S. ELLIS, and the other is the wife of Mr John KENDALL, solicitor, of London.
Took place on Saturday, when the remains of the deceased were laid to rest in the tomb of his parents at East Budleigh in the presence of a numerous and representative assemblage both from city and county.

The evidence of the husband went to show that his wife had not been well of late, and was much worse on Sunday. As she was nearing her confinement he fetched Mr FROOD, surgeon of Topsham, who attended. After consultation it was decided that chloroform should be administered, an operation being found necessary. While under the effect of the anaesthetic Mrs STEER died. Evidence having been given by Mrs GLASS and Mrs Henry STEER as to being present when the chloroform was administered with Mr STEER'S consent. Mr FROOD said, upon his arrival at the house he found the deceased in a very weak condition. After giving his opinion to Mr STEER it was decided that an operation should be performed. During the time Mrs STEER was under the influence of chloroform she expired. The cause of death was sudden failure of the heart's action caused by shock and haemorrhage while under the partial influence of the anaesthetic. The Coroner characterised the case as a sad one, when emergencies arose medical men had to do the best they could. He considered there was no blame attachable to anyone in this instance.
