‘DEATH OF COL. SIDNEY BURRARD — We regret to record the death of Lt.-Col. Sidney Burrard, late of the Grenadier Guards, and youngest son of the Rev. Sir George Burrard, Bart., who was once incumbent of this parish. The departed gentleman resided for a great part of his life at The Mount here, and he was universally respected. Latterly he had been living in the Strand, Rye. The colonel, who had been ailing for some time, died at Brighton on Saturday last. He was 66 years old. The deepest sympathy is expressed for Mrs Burrard and the family in their sad bereavement’ (Isle of Wight County Press, 14 October 1893).
