Heredity

I’m still working through the boxes and trying to make books self-destruct and vanish rather than continue to breed.  Came across a BCP given to my paternal grandfather, David Hare Chillingworth, ‘from the congregation of Holy Trinity Church, Cloudesley Square, as a mark of their esteem, affection and respect ……   June 29, 1915.  My maternal grandfather was also a priest – as was his father-in-law.  No wonder I sometimes have that ‘been here before’ feeling.  Fortunately, my own children seem to have it well squeezed out of the system.

  1. I have wondered whether the 17c Chillingworth (Wm) was another ancestor, and wondered again when his Works caught my eye when we visited the Innerpeffray Library (another place, much smaller than Cellardyke,in your diocese that you may not have visited yet). We met briefly at your Consecn in Perth, when I rejoiced to see Cuddesdon represented in the College of Bishops – I’m in deep retirement in Balmullo by St Andrews. Please look in if you’re passing.
