MR WILLIAM I'ANSON
Death of a well-known Antiquary at SaltburnThe death of Mr William I'Anson F.S.A., of Saltburn, has removed one of the best-known of Yorkshire antiquaries. Mr I'Anson succeeded his father as engineer of the Cleveland Water Works at Saltburn.
A member of the Society of Antiquaries, and of the Earthworks Committe of the Congress of Archeological Societies, he was also a prominent and active member of the Ancient Monument Committee for Yorkshire.
Much of his painstaking and valuable work was recorded in the Yorkshire Archeological Society's Journal, and a particularly notable series of articles from his pen, in this journal, dealt with the castles (particularly Norman) of North Yorkshire.
He was perhaps the first authority in the country on medieval military
effigies. Since a fire at his Saltburn house a few years ago destroyed
a series of drawings he had made of the principal effigies of the country
he had to redraw most of these, and articles dealing with them had been
announced by the Yorkshire archeological Society.
