From Mike Silburn
The burial of Joseph Hutton Dupuis. From Cemetery Records Online has him buried in Saint Mary Magdelaine Churchyard Hart, Stockton on the Tees, Cleveland, England. [Which is curious because he died in West Hartlepool and there aren't other Dupuis there. It is also interesting that this is the cemetery where some of the Ryan family are buried. That is the family of Ann Sarah Fothergill, (wife of Edward Fothergill), nee Silburn (William's wife), nee Ryan. And a census does record Joseph Hutton Dupuis as Edward Fothergill's brother in law. Joseph's second wife Mary Jane was born in Stockton. 1843. I do have a sister of Ann Sarah, Mary Jane (born Stockton, 1843, which matches) but I thought she died in 1859. This could be a mistake because it is only an assumption that the Mary Jane Ryan that died in Stockton in 1859 was this one and because I couldn't find a marriage for her or appearing in other census. Well I guess if she married Joseph abroad then this would be true. I'll have to do more research to confirm it I guess.][In addition:The conjecture that Joseph Hutton Dupuis's second wife was in fact Mary Jane Ryan, Annie Sarah Fothergill's sister. I have just realised that, if true, this would mean that Reginald James Singleton Silburn's marriage to Evelyn Mary Jessie Dupuis was a marriage of first cousins. Apparently in England in 1875 it is estimated that 3.5% of marriages were between first cousins.]

From Mike Silburn
Found mention of Joseph Hutton Dupuis in a Times article on Naples and the death of the consul. It may be of passing interest.
Extract from The Times, Monday, Jan 03, 1859; pg. 8; Issue 23193; col E
Poor Captain Gallwey, of whose death I spoke in my last, was buried on Wednesday last. Most of the British subjects resident in Naples, attended on the occasion, the funeral procession being composed of 15 carriages. Kind hearted and warm in his affections, as a friend he will be much regretted. Strong in his impulses, he was always ready to serve his countrymen, who will call to mind many acts which commanded their gratitude. As Consul, he has ceased to act since December, 1856, when he was struck by paralysis, brought on by the agitation occasioned by increased responsability consequent on the withdrawal of the Minister. He was struck, I believe, with a despatch in his hand. The length of his service has been 24 years, he having succeeded the late Mr. Lushington, and yet dying in the service, and after a service of so long a duration, the law allows, I believe, no pension to his family. Since his attack both Lords Clarendon and Malmesbury have, with a very laudable and justifiable consideration, allowed Captain Gallwey to receive his full salary and the fees, and it is to be hoped that what is called a pensione di grazia will be granted to his widow, The right plan, however, would be to consider, when the fresh arrangements are made in the Consular Service, how far length of service may be considered as establishing a claim for a pension. In the actual circumstances what is to be done in Naples for the public service? We have no Minister, and God forbid that we should have one, except under very altered circumstances. Meantime, a new Consul cannot be appointed, as an exequatur cannot be asked for, and might not be granted. Mr Dupuis, the Vice Consul, however willing he may be to do the business of the Consulate, is scarcely out of his novitiate. Why is not that valuable public officer, Mr Barbar, continued here, at least, ad interim, instead of being sent off to Canea, in Candia?
