There had also, inevitably, been changes in the Presidency. Earl
Sydney, Lord Lieutenant, was elected in place of Earl Amherst in 1884, and
he remained President until his death six years later. His successor as
Lord Lieutenant, Earl Stanhope, also became President of the Society. On
his death in 1905, Lord Northbourne was invited to accept the office. He,
as Earl Amherst earlier had done, held the Presidency for eighteen years.
By many of our older members he is still remembered with affection for his
kindness and courtesy, and with respect for the skill which he showed in
presiding over the Society during some of its most difficult years.
Interesting, smaller, grants were those for repairing and rebinding the
Bishops’ Registers at Rochester in 1905, and for rebinding the monastic
register in the Dean and Chapter Library at Canterbury in 1909.
