4 The remains(ashes after cremation) of the late Mr H.A.Grigg of
Portmore Estate Agrapatanas who died in Paris last month arrived by
Bibby liner Cheshire a few days ago and were brought to Agras on
monday were he has spent the best part of his life . The internment
took place on the second highest mountain in Ceylon, Kirigalpotha it
was where his favourite hunting dog " Dunston Crackman " met his death
after a valiant fight with a leopard.
I was indeed sorry to hear of the death of my old friend H.A. Grigg.
It was in 1897 I first met him and we had always been in close touch
ever since.
He was I think the strongest man in his time, out here. I have seen
him take on all the well known strong men of his time and I never saw
him beaten. I have seen him put up a 112lbs. dumb/bell over his head
with one arm. He held the Ceylon record for putting the shot .
He died soon after retiring in Paris probably due to a strain
attributable to he feats of strength.
He was in much pain and was nursed devotedly by his wife, he was taken
ill too suddenly to leave France, and was in a nursing home in Paris
for some months.
He was on Portmore some thirty five years, and a better planter there
will never be. He retired, but was never well, and was only a short
time he was able to take advantage of his rest. A very true friend he
has left us. written by: W.H.(Times
of Ceylon).

Hubert Grigg was one of the finest all-round sportsman in Ceylon. Not
did he actively participate and excel in various games , but he also
fostered sport of any nature in the district he resided. He was a
crack shot and earned the highest reputation as a huntsman. In spite
of his big stature he was able to keep in contact with his hounds in
the thickest of forest and in the most strenuous of country. Soon
after Mr Thomas Farr retired from Ceylon the late Mr Grigg and Mr
G.H.Sparkes of Kirkoswald , ran a private pack of stag hounds which
hunted the Horton Plains, Bopats,Digamies,Ambawela and Pattipola for
many years. Under there joint mastership , the pack, consisted mainly
of hounds imported from the Dunston Harriers, provided most excellent
sport. Subsequently the masters of this pack consented to hand the
rights of the country they hunted over to Horton Plains Hunt Club when
it was formed. They donated their hounds at the same time to the same
club and continued to hold office as joint masters until a couple of
years ago, when Mr Grigg had to retire from hunting due to
ill-health. He was one of the warmest supporters of the Horton Plains
hunt to the end of his career. He was extremely pleasant and
unassuming in his ways, which earned for him the love of all.
There was hardly an inch of country over his extensive hunting grounds
he had not trod upon, and the peak of the second highest mountain in
Ceylon- Kirigalpotha - was one of these places. It was here that his
most famous and favorite hound "Dunston Crackman" met his death after
a valiant fight with a leopard. The loss of that hound was an
unforgettable memory to him, and when that hound was interred on the
peak of Kirigalpotha, it was there Mr Grigg expressed the wish that
when his career finished he hoped to find a resting place along-side
his hound.
In accordance with those wishes which he frequently expressed in his
lifetime and in the instructions contained in his last will, his
remains were intered on the peak of Kirigalpotha this morning.
A very large gathering of members of the planting community in Agas
and Dimbula, and several members of the various hunt clubs,viz, the
Horton Plains Hunt Club, The Nuwara-Eliya Hunt Club , The Errabode
Hunt Club, and the Mansfield Hunt, assembled at the beautiful Agas
Church at 9am, where a memorial service was conducted by the
Rev.G.E.P.Parmenter.
The funeral procession started for the heights of Kirigalpotha by
motor as far as the end of the estate road on Sandringham Estate from
were they had to proceed by foot to the grave side.
A host of coolies from Portmore Estate joined the procession here and
it was about noon when the interment took place.
After the remains were laid in their last resting place, the grave was
covered with a wreath of floral tributes in remembrance of a true
friend and sportsman. The Horton Plains Hunt Club pack of hounds were
in the procession which went to the peak of Kirigalpotha.
A cross was sent by Mrs H.A.Grigg who was in Scotland.
Mr. Hubert Arthur Grigg who was in his 60th. year came to Ceylon in
1892., and learnt planting on Theberton, Maskeliya, under his father,
the late Mr. Thomas James Grigg. He then went to Desford, which was
in charge of Sir Edward Rosling and was for six months in 1894 on
St.Heliers. His next charge was Portmore where he remained ever since.
Mr. Grigg was one of the most popular planters in the Dimboola
district. Shortly after his arrival in the Island he began to take a
prominant part in sport. He was an all round athlete and figured with
conspicuous success at the annual Agras sports, tying with Mr. W.B.
Bartlet in 1898, for the Dick Lander challenge Cup, which came to him
on the spin of a coin. He was a capital rugby footballer and was one
of the finest forwards up country has produced. He played for the
Hillsmen on more than one occasion against Colombo in the annual
August week match. He was extremely fond of fishing

his father at Cape Jaffa a village south of Kingston S.East Artie
owned his own boat the "Ansma"and kept it in perfect condition.:
Chapter Nine
ARTHUR JAMES MOFFATT
Drowned at Cape Jaffa
Arthur (Artie) James Moffatt aged 45 was a returned service man,
having served in the 27`h Australian Infantry Battalion, joining at
the age of 18 in 1941. Upon his return to Australia he started fishing
for a living and at the time of his death was in his 23rd year as a
fisherman. His Couta boat Ansma had been built in 1936 and was 25.7
feet long, after Artie purchased it the name was changed, Ansma coming
from the first two letters of Artie's mother's name (Ann) and the last
three from that of his sister (Esma).
On Saturday October 19 Artie left the Cape Jaffa jetty in his dinghy
to row out to the moored Ansma. He was engaged in readying her for the
start of the fishing season in November. About 20 yards from the jetty
he apparently suffered the onset of a heart attack and fell into the
water. Another fisherman, Mr. A. Anderson, noticed the empty dinghy
and raised the alarm. Artie Moffatt's body was found shortly after in
about 7 feet of water and artificial resuscitation applied without
result. After transport by ambulance to the doctor death was
pronounced, the cause given as asphyxia from drowning with symptoms of
a preceding heart attack. The deceased was buried on the Monday, the
funeral being attended by many fishermen from South East ports. He was
survived by his widow Ruth, his sons John and Mark, and daughter
Helen.
Two sisters of Artie Moffatt's mother Ann married Huckel brothers and
each also lost a son to the sea. Margaret Huckel lost a son when
William drowned in the Thunderbird. Grace Huckel lost a son when Moral
Huckel drowned at South End on December 8, 1957.

at Gawler, his first job being in Jeff Bros flour mill and then with
Gawler Transport later Mayne Nickless who bought the company. He lived
at home with his mother and brother Gerald, the rest of the family
were married and had left home. Since his father died religion was a
large part of his mothers life (Plymouth Brethren) a radical group

applied. Dennis moved out of home and was married and moved to

division closed leaving all the employees out of work and Dennis in
that position as well. He then was involved in consulting work in
Sydney & Perth for a couple of years and then retired'

Biography[edit]
Early years[edit]
Grigg was the son of Henry Bridewell Grigg, a member of the Indian Civil Service, and Elizabeth Louisa, ne Thomson, the daughter of Edward Deas Thomson. Born in Madras, he was educated at Winchester College and New College, Oxford, where he won the Gaisford Prize for Greek verse in 1902.[1]Upon graduation, he embarked on a career in journalism. He joined The Timesin 1903 as secretary to the editor, George Earle Buckle, then moved to The Outlook in 1905, where he worked as assistant editor under J. L. Garvin. Grigg returned to The Times in 1906, where he was the head of the colonial department until he resigned in 1913 in order to become the co-editor of The Round Table Journal.[2]
Military service[edit]
At the start of the First World War, Grigg enlisted in the Grenadier Guards. Serving in France, he distinguished himself in combat before his transfer to the staff in 1916. He received the Military Cross in 1917 and the Distinguished Service Order the following year, and was a lieutenant-colonel by the end of the war. Grigg was created Commander of the Order of St Michael and St George in 1919 and served as military secretary to the Prince of Wales from 1919 until 1920, accompanying the prince on tours of Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. For his services, Grigg was appointed Commander of the Royal Victorian Order in 1919 and Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order in 1920.
Entry into politics[edit]
Upon his return in 1920, Grigg became a private secretary to Prime Minister David Lloyd George. Grigg became devoted to Lloyd George, developing a deep respect for the "Welsh Wizard" that subsequently limited his political career. After Lloyd George's departure in 1922, Grigg passed up a number of appointments within the civil service to enter the House of Commons. He was elected to Parliament as a Liberal Member of Parliament (MP) in 1922 from the constituency of Oldham. During this period he also served as secretary to the Rhodes Trust, a position he held from 1923 until 1925.[2]
Governor of Kenya[edit]
In 1925, Grigg resigned his seat to accept an appointment as governor of Kenya. While frustrated in his assigned task to merge Kenya with the bordering British colonies of Uganda and Tanganyika, he provided energetic administration to the colony, improving agriculture, education, and infrastructure during his governorship. Yet Grigg opposed consideration of the colony's development into a multi-racial state, believing that the native African population was ill-prepared for managing the government. During this period he was named KCMG in 1928.[3]
Resuming politics[edit]
Grigg returned to Britain in 1930. Though offered his choice of Indian governorships, his poor health, along with that of his wife, forestalled accepting an appointment. Instead, Grigg decided to reenter politics. Though initially nominated as theConservative candidate for the Leeds Central constituency in the 1931 general election, Grigg loyally stood aside for theNational Labour candidate, Richard Denman. Two years later, he returned to Parliament in a by-election for the constituency of Altrincham. He would serve as MP for Altrincham until the constituency was abolished in 1945.
Grigg's return to politics coincided with the rise to power of Adolf Hitler as German chancellor. Grigg feared the Nazimovement and in two books he pressed the case for a strong defense against the threat it posed. Yet Grigg never openly challenged the policy of appeasement advanced by the governments of Stanley Baldwin and Neville Chamberlain, keeping his criticisms private. When war did break out, Grigg joined the government as Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Information. In April 1940 he became first the financial secretary, then joint parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for War, a post he held until March 1942. He declined Winston Churchill's invitation to become First Commissioner of Works, as it was dependent upon acceptance of a peerage, and did not return to government until he was selected as Minister Resident, Middle East in November 1944. He was also appointed a Privy Counsellor in 1944.[3]
Final years[edit]
In the aftermath of the Conservative caretaker government's defeat in the 1945 general election, Grigg was raised to the peerage as Baron Altrincham, ending his political career. Three years later, he assumed the editorship of the National Review, a post he held until failing health forced his retirement in 1954. Grigg died a year later in Gloucestershire aged 76. His son, John Grigg, who became the second Baron Altrincham upon his father's death, disclaimed the peerage in 1963 under the terms of the Peerage Act of that year.

Comments: An excerpt from my Great Grandmother's reminiscences of 1888 (written in 1949) about my Great Grandfather who was the superintendent at Luccombe estate near Maskeliya, and is buried in the church near there; I thought you might be interested!

'..About a mile from us lived Mr and Mrs Grigg (another Tea estate). She was my dearest friend. She had 8 children and was the best of mothers. She was truly good. She was one of "the Brethren", but too far off ever to attend "the Meetings". She lent me books about babies and was always the first to come to see mine on each occasion. '
