Administrative / Biographical History

Benjamin Bagnall and Emily Elizabeth Bagnall worked as China Inland Mission missionaries at Paoting Fu, Chihli Province, East China and were killed by Boxer Rebels on 1 Jul 1900, along with their daughter Gladys Emily. The Chinese Government agreed to pay £5476-6-7 to the boys, William Bagnell and Howard Bagnell in compensation for the death of their parents.

The Boxer Rebellion, Boxer Uprising or Yihetuan Movement (1898-1900) (also known as the Righteous Harmony Society Movement) was a movement against Western influence in China. A secret anti-foreign society, the Boxers (Ch'uan), undertook attacks on foreigners from 1899. In 1900 the Boxers occupied Peking (Beijing). The siege was lifted later that year by an international force which ended the Uprising. [Source: Wikipedia]
