Sir Martin Nourse Obituary – Is Died: We have as of late heard the hopeless news that Sir Martin Nourse has kicked the container.
He was delegate Head of Chambers (at its past area, 2 New Square) from 1972 to 1980 under Maurice Price QC, following Sydney Templeman and John Brightman, all of whom continued to sit in the House of Lords. Martin was continually headed for a high legitimate office. He took silk at only 38, was assigned a Chancery High Court Judge ten years afterwards and to the Court of Appeal in 1985 at the hour of only 52, where he was then able to remain on the off chance that he needed for seemingly forevermore. He left the Court of Appeal in 2006.
He was a respectable figure, at this point remarkably obliging; he generally recalled the name of anyone in a family and took care with the youngest or least basic in a room. His choices were traditional and all-around expressed; they are reliably worth going to for a sensible piece of rule. He was moreover assigned as Attorney-General of the County Palatine of Lancaster (1976-80), as a selected authority of the Jersey and Guernsey courts of charm, as Vice-President of the Civil Division of the Court of Appeal (2000) and acting Master of the Rolls for a short period in 2000, and Treasurer of Lincoln’s Inn in (2001), all of which he appreciated and served well. He came up short on the ability to manage inconsequential turn of events yet was enduring both to establishments and people. He would show up shockingly at Chambers tea to hear our news, long after he was raised to the Bench. In his retirement, he and his rich mate Lavinia taking advantage of their liberal houses at Grantchester and subsequently Dullingham, where they drew in and made dazzling nurseries. We feel for her.
