Oddfellows Board:  Bro:  John Oates, Hutton, 13 Oct 1877, a62


From George Tweddell’s ‘Stokesley News & Cleveland Reporter’ 1 Nov 1842:
Odd Fellow’s Funeral.  
On Friday morning, October 28th, the members of the Traveller’s Home Lodge, of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, assembled at the house of Mr Wm Robinson, the King’s Head Inn, Hutton, for the purpose of paying their last token of respect, to the remains of the late Host of their Lodge, Mr Jeremiah Raney, of the Wheat Sheaf Inn. 
After the usual funeral ceremony of the Order had been read in the room, to the assembled brothers, by Mr Thos Saddler, N.G., they proceeded in procession, to the house of their departed brother, each wearing the usual funeral regalia of the Order.  Having formed in a circle round the door of the deceased, the corpse was brought out, and the scarlet sash of the departed thrown upon his coffin.  The funeral oration of the Order was then read by George Tweddell, P.S. of the Cleveland Lodge.  
The procession then accompanied the body to its last resting place, where the service of the Church was read by the Rev R. J. Barlow.  
After the coffin had been lowered into the “cold and silent grave”, each member dropped a sprig of rosemary, into the “narrow bed” of their departed brother, according to their usual custom.  As we dropped the sprig with which we had been supplied, upon the coffin of the dead, we could not forbear exclaiming in the language of Shakspeare’s Ophelia, 
“There’s rosemary, that’s for remembrance.”
The procession having again formed, returned to the place from which it set out.
From George Tweddell’s ‘Stokesley News & Cleveland Reporter’ 1 Jan 1844:
Oddfellowship.  On Thursday Evening, December 28th, the Members of the Traveller’s Home Lodge of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, celebrated their anniversary at the house of Widow Raney, the Wheat Sheaf Inn, when a good supper was provided for the occasion.  The evening was spent in the usual harmonious manner of the brotherhood, and the company broke up highly pleased with the evening’s hilarity.
