    • I'm not quite sure when my grandparents moved from Margate to Balham, clearly sometime between their marriage (1911) and my father's birth (1921) - I'll try to get closer from letters etc. that I may have, and from electoral rolls.

    Pet name Dollie 
    • From quite a young age she seems to have been known to everyone as Dollie. I was told by my parents (her son and daughter-in-law) this was due to her having sung a song (at church socials or similar) about a Dollie. I don't know what the song was; it was not, I understood, 'Goodbye Dolly Gray'.

    • How did John and Jane meet? At the time of the census, i.e. 2nd / 3rd April 1871 Jane was working in Devon; their 1st child was conceived in about May 1872. But families such as the Rolles would generally be in London for the London Season, which started after Easter and went on until 12th August. In 1872 Easter was 31st March, so it may be supposed that Jane accompanied her mistress to London soon after that, and met up with John in London. It would seem likely that she already knew him rather than that a quick courtship led to the pregnancy.
       
      Was John working in Devon too - perhaps for the Rolle family? Or did he accompany his employee on a visit to Jane's and they met as a consequence? If he did work for the Duke of Westminster he could have met when Jane was living in Taplow or visiting her parents there - maybe she had worked in Taplow before taking up the position with the Rolle family.

      In 1871 the butler working for the Rolle family, George Mount, was, like John, Yorkshire born. However, George came from Wentworth, about 50 miles from Knaresborough so it is unlikely that he knew John in Yorkshire. (He was also about 13 years older than John) Having their Yorkshire roots in common, though, may have led to a friendship between George and John  and may have led to John being introduced by George to Jane.      

      Witnesses to the marriage: James Kidgers and Margaret Swan (Margaret being Jane's sister)

      I had wondered if there had been other children of the marriage, though my grandmother's apparent concern to visit the grave of her sister suggested not. Whilst Inman is a common name in Yorkshire, it was not common 'down south', but with the family living in London there were too many Inman births to be sure, without a mother's maiden name in indexes. With the introdution of this in the new GRO online index (new in Nov 2016) it seems there were no others. (Searching from 1871-1895, but the quality does leave something to be desired; there is no sign of the birth of their son John)

    As well as being married here, my grandmother delivered church magazines and I think sang at church socials / concerts. I believe it was due to a song she sang (possibly 'Goodbye, Dolly Gray') that led to her being known as 'Dollie'.
