  • Notes 
    • 1899 MURIEL MARGUERITE Died
      Born at CASTLEDENE, Tudor Road, Upper Norwood, at the time that her father was well back on his feet after the calamity some years before. After a time, nanny, Nurse Bird, was employed to look after Muriel. Nurse Bird later left to go to China in the Mission Field and kept up correspondence with the family for some years.
      Castledene was a large house, with a large folly or castle in the garden, and. had previously belonged to General Bulmer Lytton.
      When the family moved to Woldingham, Muriel used to ride in to Caterham - 3 miles each way to Eothen School, until 1915 when, owing to the war, she left and the family - not Kathleen and Stuart - moved to 12, Grosvenor Crescent, St. Leonards-on--Sea.
      After the War, Muriel studied at the Slade School of Art in London under Professor Tonks, but specialised in modelling. She led a very full life, having a good allowance and her own car and was given long winter sports holidays each year. She received many proposals of marriage but eventually, on a sea trip from the Canaries, met Otway Waller, who was bringing his yacht back from the Canary Isles, having failed in an attempt to sail the Atlantic single-handed. When Otway obtained his divorce in 1931, they married. He died in 1949, leaving her with three young sons, the eldest being at Haileybury, to bring up on a very little money.
      Margaret, as she was called after her marriage to Otway, was gifted artistically, was a good horsewoman, skier, tennis player arid golfer, and quite a shrewd business woman in necessity. She was extremely pretty, an extrovert and had a happy personality, in spite of health problems.
