1898 Obituary [6]

"We regret to have to announce the death of Mr. Henry Vaughan, at Lindum Lodge, Fallowfield, the residence of his son. Mr. Vaughan was born in Wales, in 1829, and went to Lincoln in search of work in 1853. He obtained it in the Stamp End shops, and gradually made his way up to the post of assistant foreman, and then became foreman of one of the larger departments. After some years he left Stamp End with the intention of starting in business for himself, but such offers were made him that he gave up the idea, and became works manager at Messr. Ruston and Proctor's works. This post he held for twenty five years, retiring, indeed, from ill-health only four months ago. His severance from the Sheaf Works, after long and faithful service, was marked in a complimentary way by both masters and men. The directors presented him with a piece of silver plate, the officials and foremen with an illuminated address and silver inkstand, and other branches of that establishment with other testimonials"The Engineer 1898/06/17.
