The decease of Mr. Robert C. Ryott, which occurred on Monday night at his residence, Lynmouth-villas, Enbourn-road, has been an event to awaken feelings of more than usual nature on account of the brief illness by which it was preceded. Mr. Ryott, who for some time past had complained of internal pains, was taken unwell on Wednesday, and left business early. On Thursday he came down in a cab, but had to return; on Friday he took to his bed, and passed away on Mondayevening from inflammation of the lungs, in the 49th year of his age. He was medically attended by his brother (Dr. Ryott) and Mr. Robert Birch, but the disease baffled their united skill, and it became apparent by Sunday that nothing could save the life of their patient.


Mr. Ryott never took any active part in public life. He succeeded his father (who died May 10th 1874, in his 66th year) in the business of chemist and druggist in Northbrook-street. The deceased married the eldest daughter of Mr. Thomas Gurney, of Hartwell, near Aylesbury, but formerly of Newbury, and his widow is left with four children, one girl and three boys, the great trouble in which the family and relatives are so overwhelmed awakening a large amount of sympathy from a wide circle of friends.


The funeral will take place (tomorrow) Friday, the body to leave the residence at half-past three and be taken to Newbury Parish Church, where the first part of the service will take place. The internment will be at the Cemetery.
