   Additional notes supplied by Mark Davies, author of "The Abingdon Waterturnpike Murder" - a book detailing the crime fro which Gyles Freeman

   Covington was eventually hung for committing writes:

  

   "was the first of the London-based Covington family to move to Abingdon, and must have done so soon after his marriage, to Elizabeth whose

   surname is unknown. [Yet, could she perhaps have been a Freeman? This information is not in the book, but the few references to Freeman in the St

    Helen's Church, Abingdon’s records are tantalising. Elizabeth, the d. of Margaret (? - 1761) and Giles (? – 1762, b. Culham), was c. on 11 May

   1707. Both the names Giles and Freeman (and Elizabeth), and the Culham connection are persuasive.]

   The Borough of Abingdon’s Minutes (Borough of Abingdon Minutes) of 21 May 1773 show that Roger Covington, taylor, received a loan of £10, with

    Bryant Spokes (breeches maker) and John Brewer (staymaker) as his sureties. He paid back the first instalment of £2 in 1776, and had paid the whole

    loan off by 1784 (Abingdon Chamberlain's Accounts).

  

   At some point between 1768 (when the property was in the occupancy of someone else) and 1775, the Covington family lived on the east side of

   Butcher Row, Borough of Abingdon Minutes 24 Mar 1775 showing that Roger had formerly resided there. He had returned by 1783, Borough of

   Abingdon Minutes 1 Jan 1783 showing him to be in occupation of “a messuage or tenement and shop with the appurtenances in the Butcherow on

   the east side” – which he still occupied at his death in 1798.

  

   In 1780 Roger was elected to the prestigious post of Bellman (Borough of Abingdon Minutes 21 Jun 1780), taking the place of the widow Elizabeth

   Couling, “who is taken into hospital”. The role of Bellman was a responsible and varied one. The duties were listed in full when Richard Gilkes

   (Giles’ brother-in-law) assumed the post in September 1798. The 17 responsibilities, most remunerated on a case by case basis, included attending

   the Mayor at church on Sundays and other public events; attending the Borough Court; attending the Quarter Sessions; making public proclamations

    in the town and beyond, “to turn all vagrants out of town, and see they do not return”; to clean and light the corporation lights; to undertake a

   nightly watch, with an able bodied man; to clean the Corporation’s knives and forks; to clean and oil the fire engine; to clean and care for the Market

    House; to sweep the Bury every Tuesday morning round the Market House, and “to see that the scavenger do take the filth away”.

  

   When Roger was elected he signed a declaration agreeing “not to keep a common alehouse or sell ale, beer or any other strong liquor”, and was

   issued with a special coat, hat, and badge. Indeed, he made the coat himself, for which he was paid 4s (Abingdon Chamberlain's Accounts). The

   nature of this uniform is revealed in Borough of Abingdon Minutes 13 Jun 1783, when he was issued with “a new laced hat, a new cloke, and new

   coat, waistcoat, breeches and stockings of blue colour as formerly.”

  

   From 1780 (Abingdon Chamberlain's Accounts) he was paid a salary of £6 as Bellman, plus the £2 formerly paid to Couling, with an additional £1

   10s “for turning vagrants out of town” and £7 10s for himself “and one able bodied man to assist him in the nightly watch one year and a half.” In

   addition through the 1780s he received regular payments of 9s “for grinding knives”, 12s “for cleaning and oyling an engine” (for use against fires),

   £1 10s “for cleaning and lighting lamps”, and 6s “for cleaning knives and forks”. In Borough of Abingdon Minutes 1 Dec 1786 he was issued with a

   nine gallon bushel, in order to settle any disputes over measures of grain, the Corporation authorising him to receive 4d from the party proved to be

   in the wrong. The Bellman’s duties also included procuring various quantities (“assizes”, in the sense of ‘assessed’ quantities?) of bread every year

   (conveniently distributed by his oldest son, Edward), and payments for arranging bonfires.

  

   In March 1789 it was a bonfire with a difference. George III was a popular monarch, but subject to sudden and unpredictable bouts of mental illness.

    So JOJ was pleased to record on 14/3/1789 “the happy restoration of his Majesty’s health … and resumption of his royal authority”. It was the cue for

    celebrations on a national scale, and in Abingdon the event was marked “by the ringing of bells, bonfires and a general illumination, with many

   curious emblematical devices and every demonstration of zealous attachment.” Beer was distributed to the populace, and “that most false and

   execrable libel on Majesty, of Saturday last, in the Morning Herald, was consigned to be burnt publicly by the Common Cryer in the Marker Place.”

   The Cryer in question would have been Roger Covington, because another important role of the Bellman was to announce to a largely illiterate

   populace any new laws, borough regulations or other items of public interest. Hence, the various references in Abingdon Chamberlain's Accounts to

   “drawing cry and fair copy” expounding on such matters as “keeping the Sabbath” (1785), the “suppression of counterfeit halfpence” (1790), and

   “keeping dogs indoors“ and ”destroying mad dogs” (1791).

  

   Even with these seemingly endless calls on the Bellman’s time, day and night, he still managed to keep his needle busy, and was paid 10s in 1785


   to replace his own “cloaths“ or uniform (Abingdon Chamberlain's Accounts). Roger Covington therefore obviously truly was the “industrious honest

   man” RMOG 10 Jan 1791 called him. But even he was not without a streak of mischief. As “Hall-keeper of the County Court, Abingdon”, he was

   forced to make a public apology to twelve members of a jury (including the victualler and fellow tailor, John Giles) whom he had locked up “for the

   space of two hours after they had agreed on their verdict, and also did ridicule and laugh at said jury under their confinement”. (JOJ 19 Oct 1782).

  

   At the time of Roger’s death in 1798 (b. Culham 11 Sep 1798), the Covington family collectively owned numerous properties, including something

   called “the toll of the market”, a privilege presumably deriving from his role as Bellman (D/EP7 166). Why he chose to be buried in Culham, rather

   than St Helens, where he had worshipped, is not clear.

  

   If Roger hoped that moving to Abingdon would ensure an honest upbringing for his family, he was only partially right. His first three sons, Edward

   (1755 – 1805), John (1757 - 1795?), and Thomas (1762 – 1838?) did well for themselves. His youngest son, Giles (1767 – 1791), of course, did not.

  

   By the time Giles Freeman, his youngest son, was c. on 12 Apr 1767, Roger seems to have achieved his freedom, although no record exists, and if

   so this no doubt influenced the choice of Giles’ middle name. Certainly the next year Roger was included for the first time amongst the 250 people

   eligible to vote in the election of that year (Gough Berks 3, fol. 27). This is the earliest reference to him being a tailor, and it is worth noting in

   passing that his political allegiances differed at that time from those of the father of his future daughter-in-law. Ballots were public affairs in those

   days, and whereas the glazier Thomas Gilkes voted for Nathaniel Bayley, Covington plumped for John Molton, the narrow winner."

   Abingdon to Rounds, Sara 14203. 4th Mar: around 1800 at Abingdon to Elizabeth 14204. Christened 30 Jul 1755 St Helen's Church, Abingdon.

  

   Additional notes supplied by Mark Davies, author of "The Abingdon Waterturnpike Murder" - a book detailing the crime fro which Gyles Freeman

   Covington was eventually hung for committing writes: "the oldest was c. 30 Jul 1755 (StH), and became a successful baker. He had a particular

   status, being entrusted to distribute the “bread for the poor” paid for out of Mr Royse’s Gift (a charitable bequest) from at least 1782, when the sum

   was £2 12s (ACA), through to the early 1800s. Edward was successful enough to be named amongst the select tradespeople of Abingdon to appear

   in the 1796 Universal British Directory.

  

   He married three times, or possibly four. His first wife, Elizabeth Stone (m.19 Aug 1781 StH), was b. at Marcham 4 May 1783 (w. of Edward); his

   second, Joanna Crook (m. 20 Feb 1785 StH) was b. StH 4 Dec 1792 (w. of Edward); and another Elizabeth survived him (ww b. Culham 14 May

   1809), Edward himself having been b. 1 Mar 1805 at Culham (PRO will is dated 1803). Yet there seems also to have been another wife, Sara

   Rounds (m. 25 Nov 1793 StH), before Elizabeth. Presumably she and Edward divorced (assuming she is the same Sarah Covington “of Abingdon”

   who was b. at Culham aged 85 in 1835 – and whose will at PRO is dated that year) before the (undated) marriage to the second Elizabeth.

  

   But it is also possible that another Edward had appeared on the scene too by then. Despite these multiple marriages Edward had only one child,

   John, in 1782 (c. 30 Jun 1782 StH), who went on to have seven children with Ann (of unknown surname, but presumably the Ann ’’of Abingdon” b. at

    Culham aged 73 in 1852) between 1805 and 1814. These were: Elizabeth (c. 1804), Jane* (c. 1805), Susan (c. 1807, Mary Ann (c. 1809), Edward

   (c. 1811), Martha (c. 1812), and James (c. 1814), all at StN.

  

   The family’s recorded association with Culham begins with the burial of James (of no clear relationship) in 1785, a year when both Edward and his

   father paid rates on properties in Abingdon.

  

   * When Jane married in 1827, one of the witnesses was Sarah Covington."

   Aug 1782 at Abingdon to White, Frances 14199. Additional notes supplied by Mark Davies, author of "The Abingdon Waterturnpike Murder" - a book

    detailing the crime fro which Gyles Freeman Covington was eventually hung for committing writes: ", the second son of Roger and Elizabeth

   Covington was c. 1 Nov 1757 (St Helen's Church, Abingdon), and was awarded £7 from Mr Mayott’s Charity to be apprentice to his father (Borough of

    Abingdon Minutes 5 Feb 1772). [John Mayott (? – 1703) had been a mercer, whose dyehouse and wharf was acquired by John Tomkins, founder of

   the Tomkins fortune, in the 17th century (Naylor).

  

   The Charity originated from the generosity of a descendant, Robert Mayott, and provided funds for clothing and education as well as

   apprenticeships. His school catered for ten Mayott and ten Provost pupils (both boys and girls), recommended by the Corporation.] John Covington

   married Frances White on 28 Aug 1782 (St Helen's Church, Abingdon), but appears to have had no offspring. His wife may well have been another

   of the White family with innkeeping connections (see Shury) because John was an alehousekeeper from at least October 1787 (A/JQ1), and in 1796

   was named in the Universal British Directory as the proprietor of a pub called The Chaise and Horses.

  

   It is presumably the same John, “from the Chaise and Pair, Culham” who was b. at St Nicholas Church, Abingdon in 1795, however".

   THOMAS COVINGTON. Ref: 14205. Born: Nov 1762 at Abingdon. Father: Roger, Father Ref: 3267. Mother: Elizabeth, Mother Ref: 4134.   Mar:

   around 1785 at Abingdon to Susan 14206. Additional notes supplied by Mark Davies, author of "The Abingdon Waterturnpike Murder" - a book

   detailing the crime fro which Gyles Freeman Covington was eventually hung for committing writes: "the third son of Roger and Elizabeth, was c. 30

   Nov 1762 (St Helen's Church, Abingdon). He and Edward ensured the Covington line by having six children with Susan (of unknown surname)

   between 1786 and 1805. These were James (c. 1786), Susan (c. 1798, b. 1803), Charles (c. 1800), William (c, 1802), Edward (c.1804), and

   Benjamin (c. 1805), all at StH. A seventh child, Henry s. of Thomas, was b. 1809 (StH).

  

   Like his brother, Thomas also benefitted from a £7 grant from Mr Mayott’s Charity (son of Roger), to enable him to take up an apprenticeship (BAM

   28 Feb 1775). Presumably he also trained as a tailor, because he seems certain to be the same Thomas who, when taking a 21 year lease on

   property in East St Helen’s Street in 1795, was described as a tailor of Shaftesbury Place (formerly running from 34 Aldersgate Street) Aldersgate,

   London (BAM 17 Jun 1795).

  

   Thomas obviously did well for himself in the family trade. In 1797 he owned six tenements in Abingdon which were sub-let to tenants (D/EP7 166),

   and BAM notes his possession of premises in Boar Street in 1803 and in Bury Lane in 1810. He maintained his dual interests till his death, supposed

    at 1838 from the date of his will (PRO), his address then being a London one, yet his description being “gentleman of Abingdon”.

   GYLES FREEMAN COVINGTON. Ref: 2736. Born: 1767- 1768 at Abingdon. Father: Roger, Father Ref: 3267. Mother: Elizabeth, Mother Ref: 4134.

    Died: 7 Mar 1791 at Oxford Castle aged 23.  Mar: 5 Feb 1789 at Abingdon to Gilkes, Ann 4166. Also shown as Giles. Christened 12 April 1767 at St

    Helen's Church, Abingdon. Sailor. Spelling of name shown as Giles Covington on marriage records. Hung on 7 March 1791 at Oxford Castle for

   murder.

  

   "The murder victim, a Scottish pedlar named David Charteris, was on his way home to Toot Baldon from the Michaelmas Hiring Fair at Abingdon on

    the night of the 8 October 1787, when a bunch of thugs set about him with a hedge stake as he was climbing over a stile near Nuneham Wood.

   Later that week some chums from Toot Baldon discovered his body sitting upright in a ditch and when they pulled off his hat and wig they

   uncovered the grisly evidence of several hefty blows. Despite a reward of 70 guineas (more than most people earned in a year in those days!),

   nothing was heard of the crime for another three years.

  

   Then Richard Kilby was caught and flogged at Reading for deserting from the Berkshire Militia. the whip seems to have loosened his tongue and he

   offered to turn King's Evidence and confessed to his part in the Charteris crime in return for a Royal Pardon. According to him. it was Charles Evans

   Shury who suggested robbing David Charteris to himself, John Castle and Giles Covington. Shury struck the first blow, then Covington joined in and

   helped finish the poor pedlar off. After they returned to Abindgon, they went to Shury's house and he gave them 10 guineas in gold and silver each,

   saying: "Now, my boys, let us be true to each other"

  

   On 16 July 1790, Shury and Castle were tried at the Midsummer Assizes in Oxford for the pedlar's murder. A Thames bargeman called Bossom said

   Castle "had some time ago confessed to him that he had no rest, night or day, from the horror of having been concerned in the murder of the

   Scotchman". The report of the trial in Jackson's Oxford Journal is rather confusing, and the only evidence concerning Shury, apart from Kilby's

   confession, implied he thought Kilby was out to "do" him by blaming him for the crime. However the jury had no hesitation in finding both men

   guilty and the judge, after a stern lecture, directed them to be executed and their bodies to be delivered to the surgeons, to be dissected and

   anatomised.

  

   Meanwhile Giles Covington was at sea. As soon as his ship docked in London at the beginning of 1791, two Bow Street runners brought him to

   Oxford and on 4 March he also stood trial for the pedlar's murder. Clearly he felt the same way about Kilby as Shury. It was reported that his

   behaviour was so audacious during the trial whilst Kilby was giving evidence, that he made a sudden spring towards him and attempted a blow at

   his head.  The jury found him guilty on the same evidence as the other two and on 7 March 1791, "a prodigiuous multitude of spectators" watched

   his execution from the tower at the entrance to Oxford Castle, now part of Oxford Prison. He mounted the scaffold dressed in his sailor's jacket and

   trousers with white gloves and a white hatband and before motioning the hangman to proceed, tossed down a paper. It was a semi-literate letter

   addressed to local magistrate Christopher Willoughby. "I hope you and your family will live to find that Giles Freeman Covington died innocent and

   then I hope you would relieve the widow that is left behind if Bedlam is not to be her doom"

  

   His body was cut down and delivered to the University Reader in Anatomy, Dr Pegge. The following day he carved it up at a public lecture in the

   Anatomy School at Christ Church College. He then decided that Giles Covington would make a useful teaching aid. His bones were wired together

   and his skeleton eventually found its way to the University Museum in Parks Road in 1860. It stood in a glass case for more than 100 years, labelled

   simply Englishman, before being relegated to the Bone Room. It may have stayed there had not a member of staff spotted the inscription Giles

   Covington on the lower jaw and passed it on to the Museum of Oxford, where it is on display today, along with Kilby's confession and the letter Giles

    Covington tossed down from the gallows.

  

   A detailed dossier on his case has been compiled by Miss Evelyn Wallace, an attendant at the Museum of Oxford, and on Thursday 7 March 1991

   (the 200th anniversary of his execution) a petition was launched in an attempt to get the Queen to grant a royal pardon. Signatures will be sent to

   the Royal Prerogative of Mercy Division at the Home Office. A spokesman for the Home Office has said "Normally cases like this involve people who

   are still alive and in prison. But the rules are still the same. Miss Wallace will have to produce new evidence to show the original conviction was

   unsafe" (I.G.I London/Berkshire) (Letter from Miss Evelyn Wallace, March 1991)(Press cuttings of articles by A.J.McIlroy, Daily Telegraph & Don

   Chapman, Oxford).

  

   A further article appeared in nthe Daily Telegraph on 16 Jul 2001 citing the efforts of the Oxford Museum's curator, John Lange, to secure a full

   Christian burial for Giles. "He has already secured the agreement in principle of Wolvercote Cemetery in Oxford to bury Giles, but also hopes to clear

    Giles' name by Royal Pardon"

   London 1823 and to Henry Covington (see entries)  (Post Office Directory London 1833, 1841, 1846)

  

   The London Gazette 10 Jun 1851 reports: "Notice is hereby given, that the Partnership heretofore subsisting between James Covington and James

   Covington the younger, la the business of Wharfingers and Lightermen, at MacclesSeld-street, City-road, and at Lime-Louse, London, under the style

    or firm of James Covington and Son, was dissolved by mutual consent, as on~and from the 1st day of October last; and-that all debts owing to or •

   by the said late firm will be received and paid by the said James Covingtpn the younger, and James Worihington Maude, by whom the business will

   in future be ^carried on, under tbe style or firm of James Covington and Company. As witness our hands this 30th day of April 1851. - Jas Covington,

   Jas Covington jun, James W Maude"

  

   Further info supplied by Tricia Steel in March 2011 refers to press cuttings in The Times. She states "You make reference under James Covington,

   father and son (5254 & 540) to the partnership of Covington & Son being taken over by James Maude.  This would appear to have been a very

   suspect operation, with James Maude ending up with all the debts of the partnership, and the Covingtons taking away much of the plant and selling

   it for their own ends.  It seems that Maude was taken for a ride, and, while the judge was sympathetic, nothing could be done – see the attached

   cuttings from the Times.  I’m not sure how I feel about having these crooks as my ancestors, but I expect it’s the same for most people."

   The following is an extract from a biographical work by Bob Wallis entitled "The Wallis's - The Complete Story:

   Born on August 6th 1905 at Thelma, Napier Road, Wembley, Constance Beatrice Covington was the youngest daughter of Fredrick William

   Covington - a farrier and Sarah M. Pass. Her elder sister, Marion Irene had been born on February 28th 1903.

  

   Constance and her sister Marion had always been very close and spent all their time together. As they grew up the rivalry between them became

   more noticeable. Marion was a serious person while Constance was good looking and grew into a beautiful young lady. Despite all these advantages

    Constance was envious of her sister and worked hard to ensure she always held the lime light

  

   When Marion came of age a party was planned to celebrate her birthday. It was at the party that Constance chose to grab the limelight by

   announcing her engagement Eric Wakeling, and in so doing took all the attention away from her sister.

  

   A year later, Constance was married to Eric Arthur Wakeling of Dagmar House, Park Lane, Wembley. It was a very wet day on June 2nd 1926 The

   wedding took place at St John’s Anglican Church, in Wembley. The Reverend J.W.P, Sylvester, (father of Victor Sylvester the well-known dance

   bandleader), conducted the ceremony. Arthur Moore the Bridegroom’s brother in law was the best man. Her father gave her away.

  

   Constance’s father was well known as the oldest playing member of the Wembley cricket club. Little Dorothy Pass was the trainbearer and performed

   her duties in a fascinating manner. She wore a silver dress that matched the bride’s train, worked with lilies of the valley. A silver crown adorned her

   head! In a later chapter “Dorothy’s Story” Dorothy tells of her own life in Wembley. Marion, the bride’s sister was the chief bridesmaid and the groom’s

    sister; Muriel Wakeling was a bridesmaid. Horace and Victor (Harold) Comben acted as groom’s men.

  

   Even though the weather was dreadful the church was full to overflowing. Over one hundred and fifty guests attended the reception at Dagmar

   House. After the celebrations the couple left by car for their honeymoon in Devon, the bride wore her white fox fur, a wedding present from the

   groom.

  

   After the honeymoon the couple set up home in a semi-detached house in Park Lane. The house had been a gift from Eric’s father, William Henry

   Wakeling. It was at this time that Connie Everette joined the couple as a personnel maid.

  

   Connie’s family lived in Wembley; she had two brothers and a sister. The brothers worked as delivery boys for the shop in Wembley owned by the

   Pass family. Sarah Pass suggested that Connie should take up service as personnel maid with Eric and Con Wakeling. Connie accepted the advice

   and held the position for nearly seventy years.

  

   In May 1928 Constance had a baby daughter,     Pamela Mavis. Nurse Barr joined the staff as Nanny to Pamela and shared her room. It was now

   obvious the semi-detached house was far too small for the growing family and a move was made to the luxury Spanish style, modern, detached

   house. The house in East Lane, Wembley, was called, ‘Villa d’Este’. William Henry Wakeling had built the new house for his son Eric it was here in

   1933 that Pamela’s brother, Rodney was born.

  

   Motor bike racing had become a very popular sport at that time. Bike racing was held at the Wembley Stadium and this in turn brought great

   numbers of supporters to the area for the races. The supporters usually took a route along East Lane. And many had motor bikes of their own! The

   noise and inconvenience upset the family and a decision was made to look elsewhere for another house. In a quieter area.

  

   Eventually they found their ideal home in Elms Road, Harrow Weald. The Paddocks had almost three acres of ground with a further nine acres

   adjoining the property. This nine acres was purchased by the company for use in the future but in the meantimes Eric would manage it and have the

    use of the area. This further acreage included a wood and an old horse pond. Mr. Wakeling modernised the house, extended the sunroom, and

   added a further bedroom and bathroom.

  

   Wood panelling was put in the hall and landing, and the whole house was painted white on the outside. A rose garden and vistas were prepared


   and the family moved in later that year. Constance Wakeling, Pamela’s mother, suffered from agoraphobia and would never go out alone. When she

    did venture out it was usually in a car. Pamela and myself have felt that Eric’s father designed and built “Villa s’Este” as a wedding gift to Eric and

   Constance but it had not been suitable. The Paddocks was purchased with what Eric obtained from the sale of the Wembley house .

  

   The extension and modifications made to the Paddocks were paid for in part by his father William but anything else it would seem was to be paid for

    by Eric. With Eric joining the company after his travels to New Zealand he had to make do on an office salary Though he was given shares and

   other income from the company however he was not made a director until after his father died. His partners fared better for James Comben died

   some twenty years before and so his sons took over their half of the company. Constance Wakeling had experience in secretarial work and had picked

    up office management ideas before she married and we feel she backed Eric to become a director and take his turn at the tiller but William would

   not make him a director until after William died.

  

   From letters and photographs we have of Eric and Constance marriage to 1951 (when William died).it is clear the furniture and fitting at the

   Paddocks were of a very cheap quality. It was only after Williams death that the quality furniture and carpets arrived and these came from what Eric

   had been left by his parents Later Pamela and I realised just why the Wedding Settlement which William Wakeling had given to Pamela was so

   important.

  

   One Sunday morning in 1936 Rodney, Pamela’s young brother, was playing in the garden. His nurse, Anne Gibbons had gone to church but when

   she return she found Rodney had got himself wet through. Nobody seemed to know whether he had fallen in the pond or had been splashing about

   in puddles. Nurse Gibbons changed him into dry clothes and everything seemed to return to normal Rodney showing no ill effects. From his soaking.

  

  

   The following Wednesday Rodney awoke tired and was allowed to stay indoors playing with his nurse. As he was still tired she put him to bed at

   teatime.

  

   That day Constance had been out with her sister Marion and on her return Nurse Gibbons told her that Rodney was not his usual self and had gone

   to bed. Constance did not see him. Later that evening Rodney awoke crying and nurse found he had been sick, Constance was called to see him

   and she decided to call Dr. Tudor Edwards the family doctor. The doctor suggested someone should stay with Rodney through the night. Nurse

   Gibbons stayed with him comforting him on the several occasions he was sick.

  

   Constance visited them a few times then took over while nurse rested. But she did not get much in the way of rest for within an hour she was called to

    see Rodney who had now become much worse. The doctor was called again and he arrived with a qualified nurse assistant Who put Rodney in an

   oxygen tent while Pamela who had woken up was told not to go into Rodney’s room. But she did go in and Pamela was glad she had defied the

   order. She was never to see her brother again for Rodney died the following morning from pneumonia. From that moment Constance had all his

   photos and clothes taken away and his name was never mentioned again. Pamela did tell me of him and said her father attended to his grave

   regularly. One day I saw Mr Wakeling at the grave so joined him but did not discuss his son.

  

   According to Nurse Gibbons she often heard and saw Eric crying in his room holding his photo or some part of his clothing. Constance would not talk

   Canada. His collection of memorabelia founded a Covington Museum at Queen University, Kingston, Ontario. Traced his family back thru' the

   College of Arms to 1627. Thought in 1993 telephone directory check to live at 269 Pleasant Park, Ottawa, Canada. from tel. dir. Ottawa

  

   Wikepedia entry reads: Covington was born in Regina and grew up in Vancouver. He showed an early interest in astronomy, and had built a 5-inch

   (130 mm) refractor telescope after meeting members of the local chapter of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada.  He was also interested in

   amateur radio and operated station VE3CC for a time. He started his career as a radio operator on ships operated by the Canadian National

   Railways.

  

   He put himself though school and eventually earned a bachelor's degree from the University of British Columbia in 1938, and obtained his master's

   degree from the same institution in 1940 after building an electron microscope. He then moved to University of California in Berkeley where he

   received his doctoral degree in nuclear physics in 1942.  He was still at Berkeley when he was invited to join the National Research Council (NRC) in

    Ottawa in 1942 as a radar technician, working at the NRC's Radio Field Station.

  

   Solar observations - Immediately after the war Covington became interested in radio astronomy, and built a small telescope out of the electronic

   parts from a surplus SCR-268 radar combined with parts from another receiver originally built to test silicon crystal radio parts for radar applications.

   These electronics were attached to the 4 ft (1.2 m) parabolic dish from a Type III gun-laying radar. The system operated at a frequency of 2800

   MHz, or a wavelength of 10.7 cm. Initially the instrument was pointed in the direction of various celestial objects, including Jupiter, the Milky Way,

   aurora borealis, and the Sun, but it proved too insensitive to pick up any source other than the Sun. So a solar study program was started. As time

   passed, Covington and his colleagues realized that the Sun's emission at 10.7 cm wavelength was varying, which was unexpected. Thinking at that

   time was that the solar emission at centimeter wavelengths would be simply black body emission from a ball of hot gas.

  

   Covington became convinced that the effect was due to sunspots, as the flux appeared to vary with the number of visible spots. The resolution of the

    device, about seven degrees, made it impossible to "pick out" a spot on the sun's surface for study, making a demonstration of the claim difficult. An

    opportunity to directly measure this possibility presented itself on November 23, 1946 when a partial solar eclipse passed over the Ottawa area, and

   Covington was able to conclusively demonstrate that the microwave emissions dropped off precipitously when the Moon covered a particularly large

   sunspot. This also demonstrated that magnetic fields were instrumental in sunspot activity.

  

   It was entirely by accident that the original instrument operated on frequencies suitable to detection of the 10.7 cm signal, and it had never been

   intended for "production" use. As the importance of the sunspot measurements became obvious, plans were made to continue these observations

   over a longer time period. As the Radio Field Station was still actively being used for radar development, and causing heavy interference as a result,

    a new location was selected about five miles (8 km) away at Goth Hill. Here they measured the whole-disk flux and averaged the measurements to

   produce three highly-accurate measurements a day.

  

   He then set about designing an instrument that could directly resolve portions of the sun's disk. The new telescope consisted of a 150 ft (46 m) long

   section of 3 by 1½ inch metal waveguide cut with slots in locations to create a simple interferometer with a fan-shaped area of sensitivity. The

   amount of flux gathered was improved by placing the waveguide in metal trough, and the direction of aim could be changed slightly by rotating the

    waveguide inside the trough, but in general terms it was used to take measurements as the sun passed through its "beam". The new telescope

   started operation in 1951, allowing them to directly measure the flux from the Sun’s corona and the temperature of the regions above sunspots

   (about 1,500,000 °C). The Goth Hill observatory also included a number of other instruments for a variety of measurements.

  

   ARO - Increasing radar and radio use in the Ottawa area presented interference problems, and Covington turned his attention to finding a more

   suitable "radio quiet" location for the program. This led to the creation of the Algonquin Radio Observatory (ARO) in Algonquin Park, about 150 km

   northwest of Ottawa but relatively easy to access on major highways. A new 6 ft (1.8 m) parabolic dish solar flux telescope was built in 1960,

   operating in parallel before taking over duties from the Goth Hill instrument in 1962. In 1964 an identical instrument was installed at the Dominion

   Astrophysical Observatory (DAO) in British Columbia. This was followed by a more powerful version of the waveguide instrument, this time focused

   by a series of thirty-two 10 ft (3 m) dishes arranged over a 700 ft (215 m) waveguide, which opened in 1966.

  

   The ARO was greatly expanded in 1966 with the opening of the 150 ft (46 m) deep-space telescope. This was a major research site through the


   1960s and 70s, although limitations in its design made it see less use in the 1980s. For some time this instrument was joined by a smaller 18 m

   telescope originally located at the David Dunlap Observatory outside Toronto, operated by the University of Toronto. The original solar observatories

    remained in use until 1990 when funding drawdowns at the NRC forced the closure of the entire Algonquin site. In 1991 the 1.8 m dish was moved

   to the DAO as a backup instrument.

  

   Covington's work led to other solar-related discoveries. Observations in 1969 led to the realization that certain types of major sunspot breakouts were

   preceded by a particular type of radio signal, which allowed advanced prediction of upcoming solar storms. As other teams also started studying the

   solar flux they noticed that the different teams all came to different conclusions about the total flux, due to differences in the instruments and other

   effects. Covington worked on an effort to correlate these measurements and solve a single flux number, which was published in 1972. He also played

    a role in the construction of the Indian River Observatory, an amateur built 200 m interferometer.

  

   Retirement - Covington remained the director of the ARO until he retired in 1978. He died in 2001 in Kingston, Ontario, at 88 years old. One of the

   buildings at the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory was named in his honour in 2003

  

   Riche-Covington Collection, Special Collections, Douglas Library, Queen's University. Subjects - Radio science and technology, history of:  - The

   collection was started by the presentation of two books by Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Covington in 1973. A Riche-Covington Trust was established in the

   same year for the collection maintenance, and the acquisition of primary materials in the history of radio science and technology. The collection is

   complemented by the McNicol Collection (see entry 235).

  

   The collection deals specifically with the development of radio science in Canada. It includes material on radio astrophysics, radio astronomy, solar

   radio astronomy, radar, and early radio astronomy. Primary source and printed materials gathered by the donor (pamphlets , correspondence,

   newspapers, reports, posters, journal issues, and books) are included. The chronological emphasis is from World War II to the present. New titles in

   related subjects are purchased. The donor continues to add personal material to the collection regularly.

  

   1264 items (including monographs, serials, pamphlets, correspondence, newspaper items, committee reports, etc.). The material in the Physics

   Library is more general and supports the Riche-Covington Collection.

  

   The collection is uncatalogued although a separately published bibliography is available (see below). The collection is open to the public. Winter

   hours are: Monday-Friday, 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.; and 7:00 p.m.-10:00 p.m. Summer hours are: Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
