SIR JOSEPH BELLAMY - The death occurred last evening at Plymouth of Sir Joseph Arthur Bellamy, J.P.

Born in 1845, he was the only son of Joseph Bellamy, of Plymouth, a captain in the merchant service. He joined the firm of Messrs. Luscombe and Co., shipbrokers of Plymouth, of which he became a partner in 1872. Later he succeeded to the business, which he developed considerably, and was also successful in the formation of several cargo-steamer companies, of which he was managing director. He was always actively associated with the interests of the port and town of Plymouth. From 1886 to 1890 he was honorary secretary of the Chamber of Commerce of which body he subsequently became chairman, and during those years, owing largely to his efforts, improvements were made in the mail services, and a large number of ocean steamers called at the port. He also took a leading part in the development of technical education in town. For a number of years he was chairman of the Sutton Harbour Improvement Company (Limited) and of the Plymouth and Stonehouse Gas Light and Coke Company (Limited). He held for a long time the positions of Consul for the Netherlands and Russia, and Vice-Consul for France and Spain.

Sir Joseph Bellamy was a prominent member of the Plymouth Corporation for many years. In August, 1901, on the death of the mayor, he took up the office which he retained in 1902. Mr. Bellamy received the honour of knighthood in 1904. He married, in 1868, Susan Mill, daughter of William Wills, of Plymouth, who died in 1908. He leaves a son, Lieutenant-Colonel Arthur Bellamy, R.G.A., who was formerly manager of the Globe, and two daughters.
