Mr. J.S. Liddle in Wallingford - 1885

from Life and Reminiscences of Sir George J. Elvey, pages 291-292:

From Newbury they drove to Wallingford, and were most kindly entertained by the clergyman and his wife. Here, also, Sir George conducted a concert for Mr. Liddle, when the " Messiah " was performed. On this occasion Harpur was engaged as before to play the trumpet, but, for the first time, this splendid performer failed. His death took place not long afterwards.
