Unknown date Obituary - Henry Guard Knaggs
Henry Guard Knaggs, MD., was born in High Street, Camden Town on March 21st, 1832, and was educated at University College School. His father, a medical man himself, had him trained up in his own profession at University College Hospital, after which he married, and started in practice in Kentish Town, afterwards removing to Camden Town. As a young man he interested himself greatly in entomology, and formed one of the finest collections of British Lepidoptera in England. He also became a member of the Entomological Society of London. During the sixties, the numerous entomologists who then lived in the north of London constantly used to meet at his house, or to walk home in parties together after the meetings of the Entomological Society. Among them were H. W. Bates, F. Moore, H. Vaughan, E. W. Robinson, H. Jekel, W. F. Kirby, and others; and entomologists and botanists from other parts of England (of whom F. Bond and J. Boswell Syme may be especially mentioned) were occasionally to be met at his house.
The “Entomologist’s Monthly Magazine” was started in 1864 with a staff of five editors - T. Blackburn, H. G. Knaggs, M.D., R. McLachlan, F.L.S., E. C. Rye and H. T. Stainton, F.L.S. Blackburn’s name disappeared from the title page after the second volume; but no further alteration in the staff occurred until 1874, when Dr . Knaggs found it necessary, owing to the increasing requirements of his profession, to retire from the active pursuit of entomology, and to resign his post as editor of the magazine, although he outlived all the other founders. His most important published entomological work is his “Lepidopterist’s Guide”, which has gone through several editions, and originally appeared in the form of papers in the early volumes of the “Entomologist’s Monthly Magazine”. However, Dr. Knaggs still retained his interest in entomology, and continued to write occasional notes, the last of which appeared as recently as July, 1906. dr. Knaggs was very fond of Folkestone, where several of his most important captures had been made, and he bought a house there as an occasional seaside residence; and on retiring from his practice in North London (in which he was succeeded by his son, Dr. H. Valentine Knaggs) he settled there for the remainder of his life. His death supervened on a long and painful illness on January 16th, 1908, and he was buried at Highgate Cemetery on January 20th. His widow, one son, and five daughters survive him. For some years, Dr. Knaggs was a Fellow of the Linnean as well as the Entomological Society, but he had retired from both before his death. W. F. Kirby

Mum hooked on drugs had taken violin
Jun 4, 2003, 10:46:00
A mum hooked on drugs stole a violin from a music shop in Stone, magistrates heard. Lisa Fox stole the instrument from Tim Toft violin workshop while the shop assistant was distracted by a male co-accused.
Miss Jeanette Knaggs, prosecuting, said they asked to look around, with Fox interested in a violin.
The assistant offered to take them to an upstairs showroom, but at the top of the stairs she realised only the man, Christopher Jenkinson, had followed and the front door was heard closing.
After Jenkinson left, the assistant saw a violin was missing and followed the defendants to a car park, where she noted their registration number and reported it to police. The car was stopped and the violin, worth £269, was recovered.
Miss Knaggs said Fox subsequently tested positive for cocaine and opiates. She had 21 previous convictions for theft and like offences.
