Harry TARRANT son 12 yrs
Annie Louisa RAVON, niece 16 yrs
Martha Maud LUMB, niece 8 yrs
Frederic NUNN, nephew 7 yrs.


From Eileen Welcher, 2002:

Auntie Maudie (Martha Maud LUMB above) was a relation not simply a friend. She was a very jolly person on her own, but mixed up with Polly and Aunt Louie could well have led to bickering ! And again, Aunt Louie on her own was a kindly old soul.
After leaving Orchard Sreet, Maudie lived with two other cousins, Carrie ( who was kind and gentle ) and her sister (Nelly) who was not., Then Maudie came to Sherborne. ............

She did not become a Lumb by marriage, because she did not marry. I have wracked my brain on her ancestry, but it remains more or less blank. Also I have looked for a photograph which I am sure is SOMEwhere, and is not stuck down with tape, but so far I have drawn a blank there too.

Orchard Street was a humble place when Auntie Maudie lived there; she didn't have any money to speak of. However she kept it well, and we enjoyed visiting her when we were in Cambridge. Now it is upmarket -- I was astonished to see how it had changed when I was in CB some years ago.

[It seems to me highly likely that Martha Maud Lumb was the daughter of one of Martha Tarrant Wood's brothers - AR-J]
