Information: Lieutenant Noel Trevor Worthington, 6th Batt. King's Own Royal Lancashire Regiment, was a son of Mr. Robert Worthington, J.P., of Salmon Pool, Dublin, and great-grandson of Sir William Worthington, Lord Mayor of Dublin in 1795-6, and Dr. Samuel Ball Lafcatt, an eminent physician in the early part of the last century, and a descendant of a very old Huguenot family, as appears from Smile's Life of the Huguenots : “The Labatts were a branch of the very ancient Normandy family related to the Sabatiers and Chateaneufs, and long settled in Ireland. The first Labatt came over with William III., in whose army he was an officer. He was afterwards at the siege of Derry on board the Mountjoy, which burst the boom across the harbour mouth and led to the raising of the siege. He eventually settled in the King's County. The representative of the family is the Rev. Edward Labatt, M.A., Rector of Kilcar, Co. Donegal. Lieut. Worthington was reported wounded at Suvla Bay on August 6th last, subsequently reported missing, and is now believed to have been killed. He was in charge of the grenadier company of his regiment and fell while rallying his men when attacked by overwhelming numbers. His brother, Lieut. G. Errol Worthington, is now serving with the Army Service Corps.
