Lilith Reakes wrote to Christine Myers (aka Gould) in an undated letter, some time before 20 August 1991 (her second letter):

"Dear Mrs Myers,

May I call you Christine?................ I am writing on behalf of my Aunt, Miss Ivy Clara Culverhouse, who until February this year lived at 12 Wedmore Rd, Saltford. She is 96 years of age, blind and now living in a residential home in Keynsham, and is just a little confused at times. Aunty Ivy is a neice of Edward Culverhouse, he was my great uncle Ted. Edward Culverhouse was at one time a baker, he had 3 children, 2 girls and a boy, one girl about the time of the first world war, whose name I cannot recall, married an Australian soldier. Ellen married Gilbert Gover, they had one daughter, who I was given to understand joined the Womens Royal Air Force in the 1939/45 war........
Uncle Ted had a room in my parents' house when we lived in Bath, we moved to Saltford 5 miles out in 1933. Uncle Ted worked at that time in a gentlemen's club in Bath. I vaguely remember him, but recall a visit to him when he went to live with his daughter in Locksbrook Road."

Alan Ray-Jones wrote to Chris Myers, February 2004:

'I went to IGI (http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/default.asp) to see if I could find out any more about Charles or Edward or Henry Culverhouse, but had little success. Perhaps you have tried already. The name Culverhouse goes back to 1580 at least in the Bedford area and after that was strong in Wiltshire, it seems.

She replied, March 2004:

"When I first started my search for family, I heard from a Robert Culverhouse in Warminster, Wilts. He did not think we were related, but said that " our family story says that our forefathers were Scottish masons who came to this area to build Longleat House (near Warminster). Anyway, families are always interesting........... I believe a flyman was a cabbie (from "a fly - one horse hackney carriage" - Oxford Dictionary). This fits with the story of my grandfather's job when he had to give up running Sally Lunn's.

In a Somerset Directory for 1883 there was only one Culverhouse entry for Bath, that was Eli Culverhouse, 24 Lambridge Place.
