The odd thing that I found recently is as follows. Francis Kain was married to Ruth Cook, and they had five known children, four of whom survived to adulthood - their names were Thomas, Joseph, Francis, Charlotte and Charles, born between about 1764 and 1778. Ruth died in 1792 at Shoreditch aged 56.

I know it is not conclusive proof but my cousin owns a miniature painting, with Francis Kain's date of death and age written on the back, this having been passed down through the family. It is on this basis that I believe Henry Kain, my great x 3 grandfather, is the son of Francis Kain. But who was his mother?

(Henry's wife, Maria Ann Cracklow, has a clearly defined lineage and was not the daughter of Mary Wagstaffe.)

In 1796, Francis Kain and Ursula Newton (nee Wagstaffe) were witnesses at the marriage of Francis Kain jnr and Mary Allen. In 1809, Francis Kain and Ursula marry. She was born in Derby in 1755 and so was too old to have had two sons, Henry and Richard, as a result of this marriage, but in her will she refers to her sons, Henry and Richard Kain. It is perfectly possible that they were her sons from her earlier marriage to John Newton and they chose to adopt their step father's name, pehaps for some reason relating to inheritance.

But, on the other hand, an Ursula Wagstaff was baptised at Christ Church, Newgate in 1793, parents Francis and Ursula (Pallot's Baptisms). An Ursula Kain, infant, was buried 19 May 1793 at St Mary's Hendon. Richard Wagstaffe was baptised in Christ Church in 1791 with the same parents. This date ties in with the age of Richard Kain at death in 1827 of 35. I have yet to find a birth for Henry. I am wondering if Francis and Ursula were in a relationship at least from the 1790s, unable to marry because John Newton was still alive.

I am going to put together timelines for Richard and Henry Kain but meantime can at least answer the Wagstaff part of your email. Richard Wagstaffe and Mary appear to have had six children (source: Ancestry/IGI) Henry bp 1746 Derby [IGI]: Elizabeth bp 26/4/1748 Derby; Charles bp 1749 Derby [IGI]; James bp 1751 Derby [IGI]; Mary bp 10/9/1753 Derby; Ursula bp 4/2/1755 Derby.) Elizabeth married Telford Brearley (bp Halifax 1/4/1746) in Derby on 7th April 1772. Mary married John Cath 27 April 1794 St Botolph Aldersgate and Ursula married John Newton 5 January 1785 St Mary Whitechapel and then Francis Kain 22 June 1809. Henry Wagstaffe predeceased his sisters and left them the house in Derby. I attach Ursula's original will and my transcription of it. The location of the house is definitely Nun's Cross, Derby as I checked with the local library.

I don't think there was any animosity between Henry and Mary Cath. She wanted her legacy to go to Henry's family and, judging by the careful wording of her will, may have taken legal advice on the subject. Using the Measuring Worth website, the most conservative estimate of the 1832 value of Mary's £50 would have been £4,000 so you can see her anxiety to stop Henry's creditors getting their hands on the money. The ruse would probably have worked.

10 14-15 Feb 1804 Battle of Pulo Aura - 'Albert' Indianman ship

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Pulo_Aura

The East Indiaman ship 'Albert', captained by James Farquharson, took part in this battle against the French. It is quite likely that George CATH was on board at the time, as he volunteered and was transferred to HMS Albion on 9th April 1804.

Possibly George had embarked the Albert when she was in London? To be researched

Letter written by Hubert Cath from Lanmore, Lennard Road, Beckenham on 20th February 1917, Ref: 11317/17164/GSEK
Dear Sir,
I am in receipt of Army Form B 104-106 sent on behalf of my sister in law and would be much obliged if you would let me know at your convenience whether I may delay the completion of the same for a few weeks as Mrs D E Cath is about to be confined.
Would you also please state for how long the separation allowance is paid - I was under the impression that it was 33 weeks but it would appear that this cannot be so.
With apologies for troubling you
I am Dear Sir
Yours faithfully
[signed] H G Cath
To: The Officer Inf. Records, Hounslow

Infantry Record Office, 45 Grosvenor Rd., S W, 7th March 1917 - internal memo states: Re attached letter, Army Form B 104-106 need not be completed until Mrs Cath is in a position to do so.
Separation Allowance is issuable for a period of 30 weeks from the date of notification that a soldier is reported missing.

Daisy received £1/4/6 separation allowance plus 3/6 allotment of pay up to 29 7 1917. From 30 7 1917, she was paid a pension of 13/9 for herself and 15/0 for the children, a total of £1/8/9. The children's allowances were payable up to their 16th birthdays.

Ella writes:
We were living in Surbiton at the time of his death and Mother looked for somewhere larger so that she could let off part of it to pay the rent. I think it was a little time before pensions came into force and Uncle Hubert made it his job to see that she got one - and an officer's pension at that altho' he was only a private and, as I understand, had turned down any suggestion of training for an officer on account of his age - he was I believe 36, and trainee officers were mostly young lads.
Anyway she found the house in Thornton Heath. Grandfather Cath's sisters Susan and Edith were our first boarders and, looking back, they were always very good to us - altho' I'm sure we didn't appreciate it at the time.

18 April 1808 - George's final illness

This information is as given me by Brian Swann (GOONS member) from research at TNA and will need editing in due course:

Dear Jenny

Well - your "simple" task has proved to be anything but. But I think I now have
everything more or less squared away, but I have certainly not managed to look
everything up for you that could be done. So let me walk you through all this.However, the vessel you are interested in was a 3rd Rate 74-gun
ship-of-the-line, which according to one source was built at Perry's Yard,
Blackwall, and commissioned on 17 June 1802. It was decommissioned in 1831.

ADM 37/658 is the Ships Muster Roll of HMS Albion, July 1808 to December 1808.
George Cath was crew member No. 534. He died on board the ship on 22 April 1808
at Goa Roads, India. He had joined the ship on 9 April 1804 from the Alfred, an
East Indiaman, as a volunteer and was aged 24 in 1808, born at London. This is
definitely the correct ship, as Ferrier was the Ship's Captain. There were
three other seamen who joined on this same day from the Alfred: Charles Wright,
John Statham and George Cunningham. They were all discharged on 4 June 1809 to
HMS Namur, which I can tell you was often used as a temporary shore
establishment for sailors, so that they could continue to be paid before
appearing before the Royal Naval Hospital Board if they were applying for a
naval pension. Alternatively it served as a temporary ship at anchor before
they were reassigned to another Royal Navy vessel. For what it is worth,
Charles Wright was aged 27, born at London, and John Statham was aged 22, born
at Hampstead; whereas George Cunningham was aged 18 born at Petersburgh - which
could either be Peterborough in Northamptonshire or Peterburgh in Scotland.

Because of this, I then pulled up ADM 37/657, Ships Muster Roll of HMS Albion,
November 1807 to June 1808. This confirms the details above of his career but
adds nothing more. It is clear from the Summary Tables of the complete ship's
company, compiled every two months, that the stay in Goa Roads was short. On 15
May 1808 the ship was back in Bombay Roads. It was in Bombay Harbour from 3
April 1808 to 17 April 1808. The Captains Log below will give the precise
dates.

I also pulled up ADM 35/2577 which is the Pay List of HMS Albion from 13
November 1802 to 5 June 1809. This has George Cath's wages in it, and also
confirms he died on 22 April 1808 at Goa Roads. I also pulled up ADM 8/96 which
will give the disposition of all Royal Navy vessels by station for 1808, but had
no time to look at this.

Then I went back and searched very carefully for all references to vessels
called HMS Albion for 1808. This threw up a separate Captain's Log, ADM
51/1876, which I suspect is the correct Captains Log you are looking for. This
covers 1 January 1807 to 5 June 1809 [not examined].

I found that ADM 27/12 contains the Allotment Registers for wages of deceased
seamen from 1803-1810. Crew members of HMS Albion will be listed on p. 363
which should include any back pay due to George Cath and who was the next-of-kin
who claimed it [not examined]. This may be online and downloadable [not
checked].

Potentially of most utility to you though is ADM 101/82/3 which is the Surgeons
Log of HMS Albion kept by Andrew Elphinstone, 1798-1809. This has been divided
electronically by the TNA into a number of downloadable sections and ADM
101/82/3/K covers 20 July 1807 to 25 July 1808 [not examined]. So if the
specifics of the death of George Cath are likely to be recorded anywhere, this
is the most likely place. Survival of these Surgeons Journals for Royal Navy
vessels this early are quite rare, so you are potentially lucky here.

As well as looking up the above, I would check out the Ship's Muster Roll and
Captains Log for April 1804 to see where HMS Albion was based when he joined the
vessel from the Alfred.

Brian Swann

Dear Jenny

I had to go back up to the TNA today. So I could search some of the missing
items below.

I can confirm that ADM 51/1786 is the Captains Log you require. For the
specific date of interest to you relating to the death of George Cath I can
confirm that HMS Albion left Bombay Harbour on 18 April 1808. It looks to me as
though the vessel had anchored in Goa Road(stead) by 20 April 1808. It is
described as "Moored in the stream in Goa Road".

The Log for 22 April 1808 reads as follows: First and middle parts light airs
and sultry. Near hotter part moderate breezes and cloudy. Sent an officer with
a party of men on board the Portuguese ship to shift her nearer to us.
Carpenters variously employed, caulkers caulking sound the hatchways, sailmakers
making a mainsail; other artificers variously employed as necessary and 11 tons
of water (received) per launch. The Log for the 21 April 1808 said that HMS
Albion had taken possession of the "Robert", a Portuguese merchant ship.

As is often the case - strong on weather conditions and maintenance of the ship.
Very weak on anything to do with sailors and their conditions.

I think HMS Albion sailed again from Goa Road on 5 May 1808 and anchored back in
Bombay Harbour on 11 May 1808. I have images of the Captains Log between 18
April 1808 and 11 May 1808, just in case you wanted to pore over them in more
detail.

ADM 101/82/3 contains the Medical and Surgical Journal of Andrew Elphinstone,
the ship's surgeon on board HMS Albion. He first appears on 25 July 1805. The
section you need runs from 26 July 1807 to 25 July 1808. This is faded in parts
but absolutely crammed full of interesting detail, and contains everything you
would have hoped for. The whole of this year's Journal is 20 pages long in total
and George Cath appears on page 14. Pages 19-20 comprise a very useful summary
of the state of health of the crew on board HMS Albion over the past 12 months,
and indeed cover in overview from what had happened since the ship had left
Plymouth on 16 July 1803. Andrew Elphinstone continued on board HMS Albion
until 5 June 1809. I have imaged about 7 pages, just to show the format.
Although some of the pages were drawn up printed into columns, in practice
Andrew Elphinstone just wrote a continuous narrative of what he encountered week
by week.

The following relates to the illness and death of George Cath:

The 20th April (1808). Cath has had a very bad night, with almost constant
delirium; the ulcer extends about 4 inches up on the inside of the tibia, which
is bare, and of a dark colour, as are the soft parts around the ulcer. The
smell of which is foetid in the extreme, there is almost constant involuntary
pursing; the gums have been well filled by means of mercury, and are now
somewhat swelled and florid. But I entertain no hopes of his recovery.
22nd April (1808) Geo(rge) Cath, cooper, aged 28 (before mentioned) has had the flux
for these two months past, and the ulcer on the ancle (ankle) for upwards of a
year, which lasts as also the flux became very bad on the 31st [?] of February.
The ulcer latterly became perfectly dry and black, and the pursing
involuntarily. He died much emaciated on the last mentioned date.

My guess is that this could be a case of tertiary syphilis, as leg ulcers and
delirium are a feature of this disease and treatment with mercury ointment was
one of the very few recognised ways of treating this condition at the time.
Taking this write-up to somewhere like the Wellcome Library on the History of
Medicine may lead to a better assessment.

[JLB - I think it more likely that George was suffering from blood poisoning and general debility due to his leg ulcer (was it gangrenous?), with high temperature and delirium, aggravated by the 'flux'. The use of mercury on his gums would not have helped: possibly "large amounts of ingested inorganic mercury may cause bloody diarrhea" and "muscle twitching".
Dysentery = inflammation of the intestine. There are two varieties: (1) amoebic dysentery (2) bacillary dysentery. Synonyms: flux, bloody flux, contagious pyrexia (fever), frequent griping stools.
Possibly George was suffering from scurvy as well, which would have caused swollen gums, loss of teeth and poor wound healing. He had been on board ships for 4 years at least.]

I also managed to look at ADM 27/12, which is undergoing either conservation /
repair or imaging. Page 363 does relate to seamen on HMS Albion, but there were
only 7 entries and they all related to seamen between July and November 1807.
There is a note at the top of this page saying "Brought from 1 Ledger 152". My
guess is this is a reference to an earlier ledger, and somewhere there has to be
a later ledger covering seamen's back wages from HMS Albion from 1808. This may
need a closer look at the whole of the ADM 27 series and it is not unknown for
the dates on the Discovery catalogue entries to be inaccurate for documents like
this, so you may

21 AUTO GEGREPEN DOOR TREIN OP ONBEWAAKTE OVERWEG
Een dode en enn gewonde Van onze correspondent
LEEUWARDEN, 4 juin [1956] -- Op de onbewaakte overweg tussen IJsbrechtum en Scharnegoutum is zondagmiddag om tien minuten voor vijf een personenauto door een trein gegrepen. Daarbij is de 55-jaarig Leeuwarder apotheker S. G. Cath om het leven gekomen.

23 Boyhood memories

Mother had been a little girl - we knew all about that - but suddenly, during a midday dinner, came the revelation that Daddy spent boyhood holidays on his cousins' farm. "I worked with the men!" Up before six - breakfast with the labourers in the long kitchen - and later, if one got hungry, just pull up a turnip and munch that. All day in the fields (never knew if it were raining and it always rains in Devon, said Mother) or with the shepherd learning to work sheepdogs. Dogs and ponies! The Alps were flattened, no romance was ever more romantic than the farm! We couldn't wait (thank God we could not wait). We dragged him to his special reclining deckchair in the garden where the sun always shone, and swarmed over him as he told with absolute delight about the horses and the dogs of boyhood. "Never thrash a sheepdog. Nellie rolled in dung and I thrashed her. I could never work that dog again." The recollections were endless but clearest of all I remember his telling of the pony with the ticklish back. She was easy to catch and would stand to be saddled but then one must mount neatly - into the saddle without brushing her, else she was all over the place and you grovelling. One day with foot in stirrup, John made a clumsy movement and she was up and off and everywhere like a ballerina on fire, "But Daddy was on her!". The triumph still in his voice.

John's last letter to William in Liverpool:

London 28/31 August 1839

Dear William,

Your letter of the 18th July I now answer out of the usual course of things and merely to let you know how I get on in business and in health, as I am sure you must be anxious to learn something of one then off by the "British Queen" to New York on Sunday next. Since you wrote Mary Jane Turner and her brother William have been in town. I have dined with them several times and did not forget to thank both of them for the magnificent parcel you describe as received from them and they promised not to forget you in that line. They are now returned to Blackburn and I am pledged to go and see them next year if health and business permit, by the by and of business (I mean my business) you say truly in will never return to what it was, but still I hope it will continue and I will try hard to do that at least, as well as any thing else that lays in the compass of my power, of this rest assured and regarding my health the fact is I am dropsical and at my age this is a serious thing. The Doctors have told me so candidly, and more, that it will probably never be eradicated out of the system, but that the science of medicine being no ........ so much better understood than formerly it is .... kept at "bay" (that is their expression) for many years by the use of medicine to keep the bowels and stomach in order and to force evacuation of water by the usual channel and in large quantities taking care not to weaken the stomach at any time and living generally very moderate - thus it is I am situated with regard to health and I trust to that kind Providence who has protected me so many years, to uphold me still many years and to prosper me so that I may live to see my only relatives on earth made happy in the trifle I may leave them at my death and die in Peace and Charity with all mankind in good old age.
"Then let me live, thus let me die
Steal from the world and not a stone tell where I lye" - Pope
Business is bad indeed, no one is doing any thing this year, neither Cox Huish & Co nor F. Huth & Co or any of my clients. Of all the years I ever saw this is the worst, as my income will show at the end thereof. I only live in the hope that the next will be better, - but why should it? What is to make it better? We have no longer the trade of the world, it is leaving us daily, while our difficulties (politically) increase in proportion, and if I can but live on my income it is as much as I can expect, but laying by anything over and above that is out of the question. I merely write these few lines to let you know how 'tis with me which you can reply to at your leisure and by the by the cheap postage will facilitate the communication between us. Remember me to all and believe me ever, dear William
affectionately yours (Signed) J. W. Cath
P.S. I shall have a H-ll of a Doctors bill this year - more that for 10 years previous put together

POLICE.

BOW-STREET. - Yesterday John Kempshall, the driver of one of Howes’s Paddington coaches, appeared upon a summons to answer the complaint of John Cath, Esq., a merchant in the city, for driving furiously, so as to endanger his life, and the lives of others of His Majesty’s subjects.
Mr. Cath stated, that on Sunday the 6th of November, he was an outside passenger by the defendant’s coach from the city. He had not been long upon the coach, before the defendant commenced a race with another coach, and the horses of each were kept in a continual gallop, the defendant being sometimes before and at other times behind his opponent. When they arrived at the Angel the defendant stopped for a considerable time, and the complainant and other passengers remonstrated upon the delay, on which the defendant said he would soon overtake the other coach, when once he started. When he did start, he whipped his horses into a full gallop, and continued in that pace down the steep hill by the Penitentiary at Pentonville, in spite of the sharp remonstrances of all the passengers, who felt themselves in danger, and saw also that the lives of foot passengers were put in considerable hazard. The defendant, regardless of the entreaties of the passengers, that he would stop and let them get down, continued at the same furious pace until he came to Battle-bridge turnpike gate, when, having no proper command of the horses, the splinter bar came in contact with one of the posts of the gate, and the concussion was so great as to throw the complainant from the roof of the coach to the ground. He fell between the wheels, and if the coach had not been completely locked against the post, so that the horses could not move on, his destruction had been inevitable. He was then near his home, and did not again mount the coach. He was bruised by the fall, but not severely.
Another gentleman, who was a passenger, corroborated Mr. Cath’s statement, and added, that after they passed Battle-bridge the defendant resumed his galloping pace, and had not gone far before he run against a gig, and nearly upset it. The language of the defendant, when the passengers remonstrated with him, was (to use the witness’s own words) “horribly disgusting.”
The defendant’s solicitor made two objections to the information; but they were over-ruled.
The defendant, in answer to the charge, said he had two “very spirity hosses,” and they would “go” in spite of his teeth.
Sir R. BIRNIE commented in strong terms upon the defendant’s conduct, and fined him in the penalty of 5l. and full costs.

''Sidney Cath, Roy's father, contracted illness serving in Salonica during WW1. They lived in Godalming next door to Auntie Maggie's so beloved parents (who died within a few months of each other).
Sid had an aged motor bike and drove to Wittering and was able to buy land right on the sea front. I don't know who started the idea of railway coaches for bungalows. He put up one of the first five - to be sure his children would always have somewhere to play? Probably he knew he was dying - only in his 30's, much beloved and so needed.
"Nonsuch" was built about 1920. I don't think government in those days allocated anything to anybody - except licence to beg? They were everywhere, maimed men perhaps with hurdy gurdies, or selling matches or newspapers. The disgrace of it - unbelievable.
The so beloved Nonsuch caught fire one night when empty in 1963. It was almost certainly arson, which was a favourite passtime in those years. Roy was the owner, and got insurance with which we bought Roquebrune.
Auntie Maggie had died in hospital. Visiting her one day I said I had been at Nonsuch clearing up etc. and she said "But Irène, it is all burnt down!" and was quite confused when I said No indeed! Why did she have to pre-see it?
There is a little modern bungalow on the site now'' Irene Cath

The children were trained in trades and were often sent to the colonies to work.

WILLIAM HAWKE

A principal in the Cape Town firm HAWKE and McKINLAY from about 1905 until his death. Hawke was born of English parents in Grenoble, France and educated in England. In 1888 at the age of sixteen he was articled to WS Dobell in Exeter, Devon where he remained for four years gaining experience of a general country practice. In 1892 he received an Honours Diploma and won a Bronze Medal for Building Construction from the Science and Art Department, South Kensington. He remained for a few months in Dobell's office as an improver on completion of his articles before travelling abroad for a short time. On his return in 1893 he entered the office of Mr Caroe for a period before entering the office of GOLDIE, CHILD & GOLDIE, studying further at the Royal Academy Schools and sitting the RIBA examination in 1894. In 1895 he moved to the office of Aston Webb and Ingress Bell where he was associated with Mr North…in wining the competition for the Rugby Municipal Buildings. Here he also prepared drawings for the competition for the University of the Cape of Good Hope and designed three private (and so far unidentified) houses in Norbury, London and was engaged with restoration work at Kennerleigh (?) Church, Devon. At the time he was living at Woodbury Cottage, Thornton Heath, Surrey (in which village both W. Bevan and P Eagle resided in 1902). According to Wendland, Hawke worked in the Admiralty Office of Works in London and while there reputedly assisted with the design of the Simonstown Sanatorium (now the Naval Signal School) in 1903.

Evidently a capable and thorough man, Hawke had a remarkable flair for producing prize-wining designs, no doubt ably assisted by his partner WM McKinlay. Hawke had met McKinlay while in Webb's office and the collaborated on competition work, one way architects were able to set up independent practice, and won first premium for the Cape of Good Hope University Buildings in 1905. They left for the Cape the same year, entering into what was to be a thirty-year partnership in Cape Town. Latterly Hawke was elected president of the Institute of South African Architects (1934 - 1835). He died at his home "Hawkridge" Lovers Walk, Kenilworth in Cape Tow

The partnership between HAWKE and McKINLAY dated from 1905 and their arrival in Cape Town as winners of the competition for the Cape of Good Hope University offices and examination hall in Victoria Street. The partners subsequently won a number of competitions of national importance including the Law Courts in Bloemfontein (1906), now the Supreme Court; the National Museum, Bloemfontein (1907, officially opened in 1915); Johannesburg City Hall (1910) for which they also designed the grand organ and were responsible later (1937 - 1940) two-storey addition to the City Hall. It is of interest to note that the original 1910 green-glazed, hand-made Spanish tiles were specified for the new roof but had become unobtainable due to the Spanish Civil War, thus since "the Spanish Village where these tiles were made is no longer in existence and they will be replaced by bluish brindle tiles made in Pretoria" (PWD Annual Report 1939)

The Edwardian "Grand manner" adopted by Hawke and McKinlay found favour again when in 1911 Hawke and McKinlay were placed second in the competition for the Municipal Offices in Bulawayo.

Everard White joined the partnership around 1911 and the Bloemfontein practice was styled Hawke, McKinlay & White. The partners won the competition for Vereeniging Town Hall in 1919 and operated on other joint projects. In 1920 they were appointed co-architects with CP Walgate to the University of Cape Town following the death of JM Solomon.

A brief, possible defensive, comment on one of their buildings (the Atlas Building, Cape Town, 1935 -1938) gives a thumbnail sketch of their design characteristics of the mid 1930's "the material is excellent. the design is Lutyensesque". The criticisms are trivial. In 1939 after Hawke's death the firm continued as Hawke, McKinlay and Sayce. A number of drawings by the firm mostly relating to work at the University of Cape Town campus, survive in the University of Cape Town Library. Photographs of McKinlay and Hawke appeared in the Architect, Builder and Engineer (Feb 1921) in connection with their work at the University of Cape Town.

From JOURNAL OF THE ROYAL INSTITUTE OF BRITISH ARCHITECTS - 25 April 1938
WILLIAM HAWKE [F]
It is with deep regret that we have to record the passing of William Hawke [F], who died at Capetown on 4 January. He took a leading part in professional matters in South Africa, having occupied the position of president of the Cape Provincial Institute in 1930-31 and again in 1934-35; and of president-in-chief of the Institue of South African Architects in 1930-31.
W. Hawke was born in France of English parentage. He was educated in England and gained his professional experience chiefly in the offices of Goldie, Child & Goldie, Sir ASton Webb and Ingress Bell. He met W W N McKinlay [who subsequently became his partner] whilst in the office of Sir Aston Webb, and together they collaborated in competition work. They were successful in winning the competition for the Cape of Good Hope University buildings, and this work brought the partners to South Africa in 1905.
The principal works subsequently carried out by them were the Law Courts in Capetown and Bloemfontaein, the University Buildings, Groote Schuur [in association with Mr C P Walgate], the Johannesburg Town Hall [extensive additions to which are now in progress]. the Atlas building, Capetown, the Dutch Reformed Churches at Bethlehem, Aliwal North and Trompsburg, and schools at various centres.
In the passing of Mr Hawke the Institute of Architects has lost a loyal member and a zealous worker for the betterment of the profession; and those of us who knew him intimately are bereft of a highly esteemed colleague and a staunch friend. 
Hawke, William (I586)

47 Eda had been to school for she was clever and Mother felt there was not enough to occupy her at home in the nursery. "Why are there poor people in the world?" Eda had asked before she left it. At school she learnt about two sides of an isosceles triangle - God help us - and to draw minute squares on squared paper. I have her exercise books, at once dumb-founding and heartbreaking, but no one ever said she, a lively child, minded mornings spent in such imbecile environment. What she minded was setting out on foggy mornings. That frightened her.
With hindsight Mother believed the whole business of school for Eda had been wrong, over-stimulation worse for a clever child than boredom.

Yvonne Walsh writes (April 2001):

Your father used to visit my father at Torquay. He retired there early in the 2nd World War - Bob and I had been evacuated there at the beginning of the War, married there and I lived there until Bob came out of the Army.
I am sure Horace would have been to Lords with my father - his life revolved round cricket in the summer months, he was a member of the MCC, played for them occasionally, and also sometimes for the Wanderers and I Zingari - but mainly he was a Club cricketer - for the Ibis, the Prudential Cricket Club - he was an excellent bat, and in fact has gone down in club annals as one of the best players they've had. When he died, my mother, sister and I donated a trophy to the Club, which is presented annually by Bob in his memory.
My father was a very gregarious and kind man - though given to moods on occasion - he got on well with all the sports fraternity. I didn't know he had helped your family after the War (I) but it does not surprise me.
