Christopher Mann Torre, A.M.—Of Trinity college, Cambridge, A.B. 1779; A.M. 1782. He was admitted an Extra-Licentiate of the College of Physicians 15th March, 1783, and then settled at Pontefract, where he practised for many years; and, dying on the 23rd October, 1824, was buried in All Saints church in that town, where there is a tablet thus inscribed:
To Christopher Mann Torre, Esq,
son of Nicholas Torre, Esq., and Mary his wife, of Pontefract,
who departed this life October 23, 1824, in the 68th year of his age.
That he possessed he best feelings of the heart,
was manifested by his piety to God,
and his unwearied benevolence to those who required his assistance.
That he was beloved and esteemed,
was evidenced in the grief of his sorrowful relations,
in the unfeigned regret of many who cherish the remembrance of
his worth,
and in the heartfelt tribute of him whose gratitude and affection
dedicates this tablet to the memory of his virtues.
