MASSACRE OF MISSIONARY PARTY IN TIERRA DEL FUEGO. We have received from Mr. Thomas Havers, of Port Stanley, Falkland Islands, minutely-detailed narrative of the circumstances attendant on the massacre of a mission party, on board the Alan Gardiner, by the natives of Tierra del Fuego; and we extract from it a few passages for the better understanding of the accompanying Engraving of the massacre, for the Sketch of which we are also indebted to Mr. Havers: Port Stanley, Falkland Islands, Tuesday, March 27, 1860. In the third week of October, 1859, the schooner Alan Gardiner, belonging to the Patagonian Missionary Society, left the port of Stanley (a diminutive British settlement on East Falkland Island), bound to the Beagle Channel, in Tierra del Fuego. The European party on board of her consisted of Captain Fell, the master, his brother, Mr. Fell, the mate, Johnston, carpenter, Alfred Coles, cook, Hugh M‘Dowell (known as Hewey,” an old man-of-war’s-man), three Swedish sailors, named Jahnsen, Braun, and Petersen, and Mr. Garland Phillips, missionary catechist—making in all nine individuals.

George P. Despaired, resident missionary there.

Derbyshire Courier - 15 September 1860
RENDERING GOOD FOR EVIL. A Manchester warehouseman published an exceedingly scurrilous pamphlet against the firm of Grant Brothers, holding up the elder partner to ridicule as Billy Button.” William was informed by some of the nature of the pamphlet, and his observation was that the man would live to repent it. !” said the libeller, when informed of the remark, thinks that some time or other I shall be in his debt; but i will take good care of that.” happens, however, that men in business do not always foresee who shall be their creditor; and so it turned out , that the Grant’s libeller became bankrupt, and could not obtain his certificate and begin business again without obtaining their signature. It seemed to him a hopeless case to call that firm for any favour, but the pressing claims of his family forced him to make the application. He appeared before the man he had ridiculed as Billy Button”.

Well can anyone answer me this, who's "billy button"  William Nield would of been named as such for a reason, does anyone have a clue to the origin of "billy button", these posts below and to come are but extracts search out the compleat articles for a far more in depth report. 

Pearson's Weekly - 27 July 1911
POOR BILLY BUTTON  "Come here, Button," thundered the headmaster. " Here's a letter from Mr. Jones saying you hit his son yesterday, and hurt him so that he cannot attend school to-day. Is that so ? " sir," stammered Billy Button, I never laid a finger on him." " This letter says you did, Button. Hold out yoar hand " Swish Swish Swish When Jones returned to school the'next day the headmaster called him to his study. " Did you tell your father that Button thrashed you ? " he demanded. No, sir," said Jones. " I never " But this letter says you did." " I know, sir, but it were the French boy, Billy Bermetieux, what did it, sir. You see, father couldn't spell Bermetieux, so he wrote Button  "

 At the leeds city police courts on Monday.T.Agnew, alias Billy Button, of Newcastle was sent to gaol for three months for attempting to pick pockets. Prisoner was seen on Saturday night two detectives near the 'buses and was observed putting his hand into ladies' pockets. 

Staffordshire Sentinel -08 October 1880
A Mania for Buttons.—At the East Riding Petty Sessions at Hull, a man, who presented a comical appearance, and whose name is George Scott, alias Billy Button, was brought before the magistrates on a charge of vagrancy. The peculiarity of his appearance was caused by the manner in which he had adorned his coat with buttons, that garment being studded with them from top to bottom. They were of various sizes, and of all descriptions. Though they had the look of having been sewn on indiscriminately, there appears to have been method in the way in which they have been attached. Long rows extended from the breast the skirt, the whole numbering 365—the number the days of the year. On his collar were about a dozen or more Large white ones, which indicated the number of times their wearer had been put in gaol for vagrancy, and on another part of the garment were a quantity which indicated how old he was. But this was not all. The man had with him a bag, in which were at least four hundred more buttons, which he stated he had picked up on his travels, and with which he replaces those which may come off his coat, or add to those already on, the exigencies of the circumstances may demand. Not with standing the variety of the buttons this singular character has with and on him, there is not one which has belonged to a police uniform, and, on being asked the reason for that exception, he said he should be murdered his companions if he were to obtain a policeman's button. Scott is a native of the North of England. He was apprehended at Newington on Tuesday for begging. He appealed to the Bench to be allowed to go this time, and he was let off on promising to leave the town. 

Bristol Times and Mirror -  21 July 1874
BILLY BUTTON. Gentlemen,--Can you, or any of your readers inform me of the fate of a man well known in Bristol some 35 or 40 years ago, as " Billy Button !"  he wore  a coat or mantle entirely covered with brass buttons (like a coat of mail), danced with considerable agility and not ungracefully, and was never known to beg. His features were hansomse, and it was said at the time he was a women in disguise. I have an impression that he was murdered. I had long since  forgotten him, but an excellent likeness in the window of a carver and gilder, in Maudlin street,   brought him to my recollection. W.T.

Uttoxeter Advertiser and Ashbourne Times -  21 September 1898

 UTTOXETER PETTY SESSIONS. WEDNESDAY.  RIVAL BLACKBERRY GATHERERS. Margaret Udale, of the Smithfield Road, was summoned by Hannah Hodgkinson, of Pinfold Street, on the 5th inst., and in connection with the same case Hannah Hodgkinson was summoned for assaulting Sarah Ann Weaver, married daughter of the first-named defendant. The facts revealed that parties from the Smithfield Road and Pinfold Street had been blackberrying and met beyond Bramshall. On returning home, and when at Bramshall Bank, Hodgkinson alleged that a daughter of Mrs. Udale, said "Come on black Nan, I can do for you," and straightway set on to her. Mrs. Udale tried to separate them and struck complainant two or three times with a pewter measure—ln the case of Weaver against Hodgkinson, the latter admitted fighting but said Weaver struck her first, knocking her into the ditch.—The Bench bound both defendants over to keep the peace, and ordered each to pay Its. costs. DRUNK.—Charged with being drunk and disorderly in the town on the 7th inst., Thos. Blore, of Smithfield Road, was fined 9. with 5s. costs. BURGLARY IN PINYOLD STREET.—Arthur Salmon, a chimney sweep, of no fixed abode, was charged on remand with burglariously entering the dwelling house of John Hodgkinson, of Pinfold Street, on the 3rd instant, and stealing therefrom a pair of boots and a coat valued at 10s.—A daughter of the prosecuter deposed that the house door was left unlocked when she retired to rest. The boots were in front of the fire and the coat on the sofa.—Thos. Hodgkinson said he was passing his father's house about one o'clock the same night when he noticed a light, and saw a man in the house. The man, whom he did not recognise as the prisoner, said he wanted a bottle of herb beer. Witness ordered him out, and the man went down the street and jumped over the brook bridge.—Police-constable Crawshaw proved arresting the prisoner at Derby, where he was in custody on another charge. He had the stolen articles in his possession. Prisoner now admitted the theft, but denied that he was the man whom the witness saw in the house. The Bench committed him for trial at the sessions.

 Uttoxeter Advertiser and Ashbourne Times - 24 July 1907
A sad tragedy was enacted in Smithfield road, Uttoxeter, on Friday night, when a man named George Follows cut his throat with a razor, and died on the following afternoon. On Sunday morning the man's mother-in-law, well-known locally by the sobriquet" Black Bess," attributed to her in consequence of her gipsy-like appearance, was dead in bed. Her death was due to senile decay. Much speculation has been rife as to the old woman's age, she generally having been regarded for a number of years as a centenarian. What her age was it is impossible to state, but she was old it was apparent from her wrinkled features and her worn physical bearing. She was the eldest of a family of sixteen, the youngest but one of whom is still hale and hearty, although he has just turned seventy years of age. Black Bess" used to pride herself on her gipsy antecedents. She was the mother of sixteen children. Her funeral will take place to-morrow afternoon.

UTTOXETER.  Assault.—Two married women, named Lacy Hill and Emma Neild. were summoned for assault upon Ann Nied, also a married woman. The trio reside in Smithylane, or Smithfield-road, Uttoxeter. The evidence of the complainant was corroborated by several witnesses. It appeared that the offence was committed in one of the rows to which the neighbourhood wherein the parties live has from time immemorial been subject. The bench inflicted a fine of 2s. 6d. each, and 9s. 3d. expenses, to be paid in a week, or in default fourteen days’ imprisonment, and recommended the whole of the “happy family” to endeavour to live more peacably with each other. - the hint  appeared to be thrown away, however, for the defendants went so far as to say that they would prefer the incarceration to paying within the week.

The quarrel appears to have been renewed in Udale's house, and 11.30 the police were sent for to turn Udale out, he having been abusive to his parents, but the officers did not see Hudson, as he had been put to bed. His condition, however, grew alarming soon afterwards, Dr. C. Bamford was sent for, and it was found that he had received a severe fracture of the ribs, with injuries to the lungs and diaphragm. The deceased swelled very much all over his body, and died soon after four o'clock Sunday morning. Udale was arrested at the honse of his aunt in Pinfold-street, and acknowledged having struck Hudson as they were going home, and also when in the house, but said that it was not he who commenced the quarrel.
ps…..John Hodgkinson was a half brother to Thomas Hudson
