      John William was, according to Jessima Alice, dressed in rags
      and ill fed, receiving no love or affection from either his
      father or his step mother. His half brothers and sisters were
      well cared for. While John William was not bitter about this,
      Jessima Alice never really forgave George Robert even though
      she looked after him with great kindness until his death. John
      William was brought up a Methodist and attended a training
      College thought to be Methodist. Later in life he became an
      agnostic as a result of the useless slaughter of the First
      World War and of his involvement with Socialism.
      Jessima Alice was born in England, emigrated with family to
      Australia soon afterwards. Lived near Melbourne. In 1899 or
      1900 her parents brought her back to London on a visit, and it
      was at a dance that she first met John William, who was a very
      keen dancer. They must have met on several more occasions
      during her stay in England because they continued to correspond
      after her return to Australia despite her parents' disapproval.
      They decided to get married by correspondence and John William
      started to save what money he could from his very meagre
      teacher's salary to send Jessima for her fare over. In the
      meantime her parents (or at any rate her father) had died and
      Jessima, May and Elsie were looked after by either a relation
      or a friend of the family in Australia. Jessima eventually left
      (in 1905?) and came over to this country on a wool clipper. It
      was some years later that May came over and lived with Aunt
      Lizzie Perrin until she married Robert Maclaren. Elsie came
      over later still and, though she lived with Aunt Lizzie for a
      short time, she started nursing training and made her home with
      Jessima Alice and John William [1]
