RMS Campania was a British ocean liner owned by the Cunard Steamship L ine Shipping Company, built by Fairfield Shipbuilding and Engineerin g Company of Govan, Scotland, and launched on Thursday, 8 September 18 92.

Identical in dimensions and specifications to her sister ship RMS Luca nia, Campania was the largest and fastest passenger liner afloat whe n she entered service in 1893. She crossed the Atlantic in less than s ix days, and on her second voyage in 1893, she won the prestigious Blu e Riband, previously held by the Inman Liner SS City of Paris. The fol lowing year, Lucania won the Blue Riband and kept the title until 189 8 - Campania being the marginally slower of the two sisters.
Final days
Campania and Lucania served as Cunard's major passenger liners for 1 4 years, during which time they were superseded in both speed and siz e by a succession of four-funnelled German liners, starting with the K aiser Wilhelm der Grosse in 1897, which sparked off a battle between n ations to create the largest most powerful liners such as the Kaiser a nd Olympic-class ocean liners. The German competition necessitated th e construction of replacements for the two Cunarders, which came to fr uition in 1907 with the appearance of the RMS Lusitania and RMS Mauret ania.

With the appearance of a third Cunard giant in 1914, RMS Aquitania, Ca mpania was no longer required. Her last planned voyage for Cunard wa s her 250th, and commenced on 25 April 1914. On her return to Liverpoo l, she was chartered to the Anchor Line to do voyages from Glasgow t o New York. However, the First World War broke out and Aquitania, havi ng completed only three voyages, was immediately commandeered by the N avy and converted into a fully armed merchant cruiser. Campania was th erefore recalled to take her place but unfortunately, she was too ol d and managed only three voyages before being sold for scrap. Her las t voyage as a passenger liner was on 26 September 1914. However, Campa nia was to have a last-minute reprieve.
HMS Campania - (1914) - The sinking of Campania
While Campania awaited demolition, the Admiralty stepped in at the las t minute and bought her with a view of converting her to an armed merc hant cruiser that could carry seaplanes. The original idea was to us e float-planes which would be lowered into and retrieved from the wate r by a crane. The conversion was carried out at the Cammell Laird ship yard in Birkenhead. Her interior was completely gutted, and room mad e inside to store up to 14 aircraft. She was also equipped with eigh t 4.7" (120-mm) guns.

The conversion was completed in 1915, and trials took place under Capt ain Oliver Schwann of the Royal Navy, with Charles H. Lightoller (form erly second officer of RMS Titanic) as the first officer. Two weeks la ter she joined the fleet at Scapa Flow as HMS Campania, and subsequent ly began manoeuvres in the North Sea. Her job was to send aeroplanes a head to scout for the German fleet.

After a short period, it was decided to add 160 ft (49 m) flight dec k at the front of the ship, to enable aircraft to take off directly fr om the ship without being lowered into the water. Trials following thi s conversion indicated that the deck was too short, so it was extende d to 220 ft (67 m). The alterations required the removal of the forwar d part of the superstructure, and the first funnel (which was replace d by two narrower funnels on each side). The aft deck was cleared an d the aft mast removed, so that she could also serve as an Observatio n Balloon Ship. Campania now bore little resemblance to her original c onfiguration.

HMS Campania served with the Admiralty right up until 5 November 1918- just six days before the armistice was signed, when she was involved i n an accident in the Firth of Forth during high winds. Campania dragge d her anchor in a sudden squall, and at 03:45 struck the bow of the ba ttleship Royal Oak and then dragged along the side of the battle cruis er HMS Glorious. She began to sink stern first. A few hours later an e xplosion-presumed to be a boiler-sent her to the bottom.

Because of the shallowness of the water, she was considered a danger t o shipping and large charges were placed on the decks to demolish her . By 1921 the wreck had been reduced to a safe clearance depth. Furthe r to this destruction it is reported that salvage of valuable metals t ook place on the wreck, possibly during the late 1940s and the 1960s.[ 4]:i, 9-10 Despite this damage, the wreck site today is classified a s being of historical importance, being designated under the Protectio n of Wrecks Act in 2000. This designation was revoked in 2013 when th e site was re-designated as a Historic Marine Protected Area under th e Marine (Scotland) Act 2010.[5]

18 Farmer at Bodyhfredd, near Wrexham, then at Elmhurst, Preston Road, Coppull. When he died, the farm was run by his wife, then taken over by his son James who continue to run it until 1960. It was sold when his wife Lililan died. SCOTSON James Edmund (I170)
 
19 Found by his parents in bed at his home on 1/10/11 - 11 Mopoke Hill Road Warrandyte - after he didn't show up to dinner for his twin sons' birthday.
They believe he passed away on 29/09/11 after going to bed and believe he died from a seizure.

Several months before he died he had a seizure at home which left him disoriented and doctors put him on medication to control any future seizures. The medication meant he was not allowed to drive, so he came on holidays to QLD with his parents. Less than a week after they returned to Victoria, he must have had a seizure in bed and died in bed.

Lived with wife Amelia at 74 Percy Street, Mitcham, Victoria

32 Undoubtedly the most famous of the Scotson brood was an "Old Aunt Martha" who outlived all the rest of them and was well know to practically everone who bore the name. Born on May 8th 1833, she did not leave us until April 11th, 1929, so that on her departure she lacked just one month for her 96th birthday. Although born too late to meet her grandfather James (who died in the year 1812) by a few years, still her life span brought her close enough to learn most of the details relating to him, how he came to the smithy in the first place and what progress he had made during his lifetime. Remarkably, Aunt Martha did not change her name when she married, which is something of a rarity, for she married her cousin John Scotson, who like herself, had one of the seven fiddlers for a father. John was born at Wood End in 1819, but grew up along with his wife in close proximity to both Chisnall and Clayton Halls which seem to be occupied by all of the fiddlers and their families at different periods. After John & Martha were married they moved away from the Chorley district and occupied yet another landmark known as Holt Hall Farm at Gateacre, near Liverpool. Aunt Martha and her son, James Edward, who followed her were tenants on this farm for many years and it was here that I knew them best, for I had spent many schoolboy vacations with "Unclie Jim Ned" The Scotson Cycle (1725-1966) by William Scotson SCOTSON Martha (I129)

34 What the intentory, taken on 3 August 1584, of the goods and chattels of John Scotson of Abbot Park, does reveal is a real clue (not fully appreciated for some time) to the mysterys as to how his descendant Thomas Scotson c.1628-1691 became a comparitively wealthy man, not a 'millionaire' but still rich enough to send his three sons to school (almost certainly Hawkshead Grammar School) and the young one, on to university.

In January 1681Thomas had bought a messuage & tenement in Linda-in-Furness, from John Benson for 100, and on June 18 the transaction was passed in the Manor Court of Furness by the Steward there, one Curwen Rawlinson. And in July 1688 he appears to have sold the same to William Mason

James was the son of Robert Scotson. Through a photograph taken of James at the National Union of Teachers Conference 1895 we found that he had written a speech which was published in book form and also two other books. He was very highly thought of as a teacher and was awarded an honorary science degree and also made a justice of the peace. James was of a family of 7 brohters and sisters.

37 An Australian Convict - JOHN SCOTSONb. 1809 (Radcliffe tree)

John Scotson, the third son of Robert Scotson and Charlotte Spillsbury, was christened at the Collegiate Church of StMary, St Denys, and St George (now Manchester Cathedral) on 30 July 1809. He lived in Manchester working first as a factory boy, then cleaning the carding machines in a cotton mill.
On 26 Oct 1929 he was taken to court at the Lancaster Quarter Session at Salford, Lancashire for stealing a hundred silk handkerchiefs and consequently sentenced to transportation to Australia for seven years imprisonment.

He was first transferred to theConvict Hulk “Cumberland” at Chatham where his behaviour was described as "indifferent". He was then transported with 215 other male convicts on the “Lady Harewood”, a large East Indiaman merchant sailing ship under the charge of Captain Richard W Stonehouse, departing from Sheerness to New South Wales on 30 October 1830. The journey took nearly five months, arriving at Sydney Cove on 4March 1831. There in Australia, John served his time in Goulburn Gaol until receiving his freedom on 23 November 1838 after which he was allowed to remainin the district of Goulburn.

There in Goulburn he worked as a labourer, but with “five years on the roads” according to the NSW Police Crime Report of 23 February 1860. Alas, we again find him in court on 29 September 1857 when 48 years old, this time at Goulburn. There he was convicted for stealing and killing a cow, receiving a sentence of five years imprisonment. He first served at Darlinghurst Gaol, but was given a Ticket of Leave in 1860 to stay in Scone. However, in February he was reported to be illegally at large, having left the district, and his ticket was cancelled. He gave himself up to the Chief Constable at Scone on 20 February 1860. His final Ticket of Leave was issued on 28 November 1861.

Other recorded details are a marriage to Ellen Hill at Goulburn in 1869. Nothing more is known about his marriage,but she might well be an E Scotson living separately at Bourke in New South Wales, recorded in 1889 and 1892.
John Scotson must have been quite a rugged figure in appearance. He is described as 5’6¼” tall, having a ruddy complexion with light brown hair, and hazel coloured eyes. His left eye was injured with a scar over the inner corner of the left eyebrow, he had another scar on the upper part of his nose and one on his forehead. He had tattoos showing ISEJ with an anchor on the upper arm, and a woman on the inside lower arm.
John is recorded as dying in an asylum at Liverpool, Cumberland in Sydney, NSW. He was buried in St Luke’s church graveyard, Liverpool on 10 June 1894.

Scotson, the son of Frederick Charles Scotson, gained his medical education at Manchester Grammar School and the University of Manchester, where he was Bradley Surgical Scholar and won a number of academic distinctions. Scotson was awarded the Fellowship of Royal College Surgeons at the age of 24, and had to wait a year before he was old enough to be given his diploma. He also studied at St Bartholomew's, the Mayo Clinic and other American clinics. Scotson held resident appointments at MRI before embarking as a consulting surgeon with his father in Manchester. He was assistant visiting surgeon to Royal Manchester Children's Hospital from 1934 to 1937, honorary surgeon to Manchester Northern Hospital and the Manchester Victoria Jewish Hospital from 1930, and also consultant surgeon to Crumpsall Hospital and Leigh Infirmary. Scotson was particularly interest in surgery of the gastro-intestinal tract. Scotson served on the committee of MMS and was vice-president and honorary secretary to the Manchester Pathological Society. After ill health and a period of depression, Scotson committed suicide on 20 March 1955. His son, John Hector Scotson was also a doctor. He married Annie Mollie Bradbury in 1928, who died 24 December 1940.

39 Scotson, James
(1836–1911)
Robin Betts

Scotson, James (1836–1911), headmaster, was born in Manchester, the son of Robert Scotson, a working man. From the age of seven he attended the New Jerusalem School, Peter Street, Manchester (founded for boys in 1827 and opened for girls in 1844). He was apprenticed as a pupil teacher at the school, then attracting some 600 pupils, in 1849 and appointed assistant master from 1854. Having been awarded a first-class teacher's certificate, he was appointed headmaster with effect from 1 January 1858. On 14 August 1857 he married Betsey (b. 1836/7), daughter of John Taylor, at the New Jerusalem Church, Bolton Street, Salford.
From 1862, under payment by results, reading, writing, and arithmetic were examined in six standards, but Scotson extended the curriculum and began to develop a specialist school for older pupils. In 1880 Peter Street was merged with the Lower Mosley Street British School as the Central School under the Manchester school board and consolidated into one of the first higher grade schools for pupils who had passed standards I–IV and wished to prolong their education. Scotson was appointed headmaster.
In 1884 the royal commission on technical education, chaired by Bernhard Samuelson, recorded the emergence of higher grade schools where additional subjects were taught more satisfactorily than in schools containing children of all ages and all stages of progress. Scotson's school was described as remarkable (Samuelson commission second report, 1.425). There were 320 boys and 200 girls taking mathematics, science, physical geography, and French. On 7 July 1884 a four-storey building, complete with two laboratories and a machine-drawing room, was opened in Deansgate by A. J. Mundella, the minister responsible for education. Bringing together picked intellects in higher schools from great towns and cities, he said, would stimulate all the elementary schools below them (School Board Chronicle, 41).
In December 1886 Scotson gave evidence to the Cross commission and urged that schools similar to his own should be set up in every town of from 10,000 to 15,000 inhabitants. In his view their purpose was either to form a connecting link between the ordinary elementary school and existing secondary schools, or where the latter were either inferior or did not exist at all, to take their place. Pupils could stay until they were sixteen; fees were 9d. per week. There were now 208 boys and 129 girls in standard VI, 215 boys and 103 girls in the new standard VII; also retained in the school were 300 boys and 50 girls who had passed standard VII who were assembled in a so-called organized science school under the auspices of the Department of Science and Art (South Kensington), which granted the school 10s. a year for every pupil who attended 250 times and passed its science examination. These pupils were also taught French, arithmetic, and composition; their day began with an hour's religious instruction. Twenty-five per cent of the boys left to go into engineering, chemical laboratories or architecture. Two-thirds of recent girl leavers went into teaching. By 1891 Scotson had 1400 pupils: 1000 boys and 400 girls. His staff consisted of sixteen masters and assistants; the headmistress had a staff of six and there were special teachers for science, engineering, French, German, and cookery. Two former pupils, one male, one female, had recently been awarded a BSc from Victoria University of Manchester; another had gained a double first at Oxford.
Though he was on the executive of the National Union of Elementary Teachers in the 1870s Scotson of Manchester, as he was known (Christian, 48), preferred not to rise further, but when twenty headmasters of higher grade and organized science schools met in Manchester on 5 November 1892 and set up an association he was elected first annual president. Two years later, answering a circular letter from the Bryce commission addressed to some twenty distinguished educationists, Scotson outlined his plans for connecting higher grade schools' boys' departments with grammar or secondary schools. Higher grade schools would have a lower part, into which former elementary pupils could enter having passed standard IV. If a boy wished to prepare for a profession he would complete standard V, then be prepared for the classical department of a secondary school. The majority would progress into the organized science school, most for a two-year course in science, mathematics, and modern languages, a few for three or four years to compete for national or county scholarships. The Bryce report, however, favoured a system in which the higher grade school would be an institution made distinct from grammar or secondary schools by the intended leaving age of its scholars. In 1897 a joint memorandum drawn up by the Association of Headmasters (representing the grammar schools) and the Association of Higher Grade Schools agreed this principle which was incorporated in the Board of Education's higher school minute of April 1900. Higher grade schools' function as a conduit by which able elementary school pupils could pass upwards without encountering a selective bar had ended: a few, including the Central School, were awarded secondary status.
Scotson, who had been awarded an MSc in 1902 by the Victoria University of Manchester, honoris causa, remained in charge of his school until the change took place. He retired in July 1904. Bearded, tall, and well built, with a thunderous voice, he was a genial man of powerful intellect, forcible yet sympathetic. In 1884 Mundella had provided him with a famous epitaph: 'When I want to point to some first-rate schoolmasters in England I generally begin with Mr Scotson. Mr Scotson I consider the prince of our elementary schoolmasters' (School Board Chronicle, 41). Scotson died at his home, 19 Wellington Road, Whalley Range, Manchester, on 4 June 1911. His remains were cremated two days later at Manchester crematorium.
