DEATH OF SIR EDWARD R. SULLIVAN
We regret to announce the death on Saturday morning in London, after a short illness, of Sir Edward Robert Sullivan, Bart., of 8, Palmeira-square, Brighton. Sir Edward was born in 1826, and succeeded his brother in the title in 1865. Shortly after leaving college he founded the Ravenhead Glass Works, which were afterwards taken up by the London and Manchester Plate Glass Company. He was also interested in other businesses, and was at the head of Pearce and Plenty, and the British Tea Table Company. It was chiefly, however, as a contributor of interesting letters to the Morning Post on all kinds of political and social problems that Sir Edward Sullivan was known. Two volumes of these letters were published a year or two ago under the title of "Stray Shots," and met with great success. On yachting he was a great authority, and the preface to the volume on "Yachting" in the Badminton Series was written by him.Sir Edward lived in London until five years ago, when he removed to Brighton. He leaves a widow and an only daughter, and is succeeded in the Baronetcy by his cousin, Admiral Sir William Sullivan, K.C.B., C.M.G. The funeral takes place on Wednesday, at St Barnabas, Hove.
