  Dear Griff:  Happy New Year!. Very interesting about your grandfather.
Also interesting that this was about 40 years after great-grandfather was
sent to Australia. After they got back to England, they continued to be
persecuted by the Anglican Church, and eventually decided to emigrate to
Canada. They made a pact among themselves, never to speak of the past in
any way. My mother was in her forties before she ever learned about all
this!! Her mother, Charity, lived with us until I reached ten, and she 90.
Four siblings lived to be well over 90. Lloyd Z in Durham NC
