First Generation

 

1.     William Doig was born about 1766 in Of Scotland.

This Doig has not been found in the records. He is here called William based on son Robert's eldest son named William and a son named William. The link between the two sons is based on being in Limerick, Ireland at the same time with families there, and both had sons with middle name Gordon. In Ireland the surname appears as Doig and Duhig. There are likely more children born to this family. Other details suggest this family came from Dundee, this William possibly the one born in 1766 on family file ROBX1620.

Third Generation

 

4.     William Doig (Robert, William) was born in 1813/1814 in Scotland. He died on 22 Nov 1875 in Chorlton, Manchester, Lancashire, England.

William's birth may have been in Ireland, as indicated in the 1851 census, although this may have been reported in error by his "wife" Sarah who had probably not known him long.

 

In 1841 William (25 Scotland) was a millwright residing at Cheetham Street, Cheetham, Lancashire, England with his wife Ellen (20 Lancashire).

 

It seems that William deserted or divorced his first wife Ellen as he appears with his second wife to be in the 1851 census. Ellen died on 7 Sept 1853 in Manchester and William remarried to Sarah on 12 Dec 1853 in Manchester. It is also not clear if daughter Annie Elizabeth Doig is by Ellen or Sarah.

 

In 1851 William (38 Ireland) was a millwright lodging at Nelson Bank, Newton, Manchester, Lancashire, England with his "wife" Sarah (23 Manchester); the head of household was a dressmaker Catherine Penningstone, age 38 [Note: census record is blurred and wife's name shows only final "ah"]. At his marriage in 1853 he listed himself as an engineer. In 1871 he (57 Scotland) was a millwright residing at 25 Maskell Street, Chorlton on Medlock with his wife Sarah Stopford and children Annie (apprentice dressmaker), Wm. George (Manchester Trade apprentice), and Alexander (scholar). In 1874 he was a mechanical engineer residing at 24 Maskell Street, Chorlton on Medlock.

Ellen was born on 10 Nov 1819 in Manchester, Lancashire, England. She died on 7 Sep 1853 in Thompson Street, Manchester, Lancashire, England.

Ellen's death certificate was witnessed by her father John Perkins.

He was buried on 29 Dec 1891 in Harvard Grove Cemetery, Cleveland, Cayahoga Co., OH.

Father reported as Robert Dean, although christening record lists the only parent as Mary Deane. Father not named on marriage certificate. This suggests George was Illegitimate.

 

In 1841 George (20) was a journeyman engraver residing in Leigh Street, Liverpool with his wife Eliza (20) and Jane Dean (15), probably his sister. The family moved to the Isle of Man about 1847.

He was buried on 19 May 1869 in Green-Wood Cemetery, Brooklyn, Kings Co., NY.

In 1841 Alexander was an engineer residing at Milton Street, West Derby, Walton on the Hill, Lancashire with Thomas Rees and family.

 

Alexander was an engineer in Montreal, Quebec, Canada in 1844, noted in the christening record of daughter Margaret as from Dundee. He emigrated to New York state about 1846, at first in Orange County. Wilson's Newburgh Directory for 1856-57 show that Alexander was an engineer living at East Side Water Street near Broad Street. On 28 Dec 1850 Alexander Doig (30 Scotland) was an engineer lodging without his family in Mobile, Alabama. He settled in Brooklyn about 1858. In 1860 A. Dagg was an engineer residing at 414 Hicks, Brooklyn, Kings Co., NY with his wife M.E. and children Isabella, Robert, Alexander, and Willie. In the 1865 NY State Census he resided in the 6th Ward, Brooklyn with his wife Mary and children Isabella, Robert, and William; he was a naturalized citizen, formerly in the Army [Navy].

 

The June 29, 1861 issue of "Scientific American" mentions an A. Doig, an engineer who developed a new refrigerated journal (bearing) box for steamship applications. The signature on the patent confirms it was this Alexander Doig.

 

Alexander joined the U.S. Navy on 25 Nov 1861 as Acting First Assistant Engineer, serving for 36 months. He served on the U.S.S. Mercedita in the south Atlantic blockading squadron.  After one encounter, Alexander wrote:

“U.S.S. Mercedita, Port Royal Harbor, January 31, 1863.

Sir: I respectfully beg leave to report the damage done to the boilers and machinery during the action of this morning and the present condition of same.

The enemy’s shell penetrated the engine-room bulkhead on the starboard side about 5 feet abaft the steam chimney, striking the port one and carrying away at least 4 feet of the outer shell.

The steam immediately escaped from the boilers and filled the engine and fire rooms, thereby leaving the machinery in a useless condition.

On examination of the starboard boiler I found that by closing the connections steam might be raised on it sufficiently to work the engine at a slow rate, which was done, in obedience to your orders.

It will require a further examination before I shall be able to report on the present condition of the boilers, to make which the coal must be removed from the side bunkers.

I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant,

A. Doig, Senior Engineer

Captain Henry S. Stellwagen, U.S.S. Mercedita.”

Alexander resigned on 6 June 1863.

 

In 1864 Alexander lived at 404 Hick, Brooklyn, soon moving to 406 Hicks where he lived until his death.

 

Because of frozen ground, Alexander's body was placed in a receiving tomb on 18 Apr 1869, awaiting burial. Alexander's estate was administered on 3 May 1869 in the Surrogate Court, Brooklyn.

 

Alexander married (MRIN:3) Mary E. McIntyre, daughter of Peter McIntyre, on 21 Jun 1841 in St. Anne’s Church, Liverpool, Lancashire, England. Mary was born in 1819/1821 in Scotland. She died on 14 Jul 1877 in 590 Hicks Street, Brooklyn, Kings Co., NY. She was buried on 16 Jul 1877 in Green-Wood Cemetery, Brooklyn, Kings Co., NY.

In 1841 Mary (21 Scotland) was a straw bonnet maker residing on Atkinson Street, Manchester with her sister Christina (16 Scotland).

 

On 19 June 1869 Letter of Guardianship were recorded in the Brooklyn Surrogate's Court, of William J. Doig to Mary Doig, his mother.

 

In 1870 Mary was a widow with her three children and a housekeeper Ellen McGuire (born 1836/7 in NY) at 590 Hicks Street, Brooklyn, NY; the value of her real estate was $9000 with personal property worth $1000.  She continued to live at 590 Hicks Street until her death.

 

In Mary's will dated 11 June 1873 she bequeathed all her estate and personal belongings to her only daughter, Isabella.  She declared that she did not do this, “out of any ill will or want of proper maternal affection towards my two sons but from a consideration of her sex, her unmarried condition, her not having been brought up to any trade, the dangers and temptations to which she would in consequence otherwise be exposed.” [probate 4 Oct 1877, Surrogate Court, Brooklyn]  She also left Lot 18693 in Green-Wood Cemetery, where Alexander and Christopher were buried, to her three surviving children Isabella, Robert, and William.

 

Witnesses were Robert Pollocke and Eliza Parsons.

  

Alexander and Mary had the following children.

             33    F           i.    Margaret Jane Doig was born on 19 Oct 1843 in Of Dundee, Angus, Scotland. She was christened on 25 Feb 1844 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

In 1870 Isabella lived with her mother and two brothers at 590 Hicks Street, Brooklyn, NY.  In 1880 she lived with her brother Robert in Brooklyn (page 480). In 1900 and 1910 she lived alone, a tenant at 202 9th Street, Brooklyn, NY.

 

A hand-written letter sent by Isabella Doig to her cousin, Hugh Doig in 1870: 

"Brooklyn August 26 1870 

My dear cousin Hugh

                      It is a long time since we have heard from you but do not think that because I have not written, that we have forgotten your family for mother takes a deeper interest in yours than in others.  Since I last wrote to you I have received letters twice from uncle and aunt Dean; in the last one I learned that one of their sons, Henry, and his wife have arrived in New York a few months ago not knowing how near Brooklyn was to N.Y. and starting the next day after their arrival for the west, we were disappointed in not seeing them.  A short time ago uncle Dean sent mother a carte of each of the members of his family and to me a package of cartes of myself copied from the one you lent them.  They seem to have a very interesting family, both sons and daughters. I hope aunt, your mother is better and that brother and self are well.  During the Winter and Spring we were alone the greater part of the time for brother Robert's work called him from home but this Summer he has nothing to do so we had him constantly with us. 

                       We have had a very warm Summer for days the intense heat seemed almost unendurable; mother was constantly ill while it lasted; as she is naturally inclined to be stout it was very trying for her.  Willie has had vacation for some time past; the school generally has had from six weeks to two months every year; this agrees with him wonderfully well as he is very fond of sports especially the water; it is never too hot for him to do without one or two swims a day; if I could only make him as fond of his books, as of these I tell him I would be satisfied, it is hard work to make him sit still long enough to learn any thing. 

                       He resembles father more than any of the members of our family.  I have not heard from aunt Bella for along time, have you heard anything lately.  I had some of father's cartes taken lately of his pictures, they are excellent copies.  I will include one with this letter.  I looked carefully through your last letter and shook it out to find your carte but could not see it, did you forget to put it in?  Cousin don't wait for me to write if at any time you have the least inclination and time do it; never mind tiring yourself about a respectable letter, write anything.  I am so careless about writing I don't think I take pen in hand half a dozen times in a year to write letters.  We are all well and desire to be remembered to all.  When you write will you please say New No.590 Hicks St., Brooklyn, N.Y.  I must close now with love to you from very truly your affectionate cousin 

                         Bella C Doig"

 

Isabella died at age 72. She was buried with her parents in Green-Wood Cemetery, Lot 18693, Section 9.  The probate records show that she died intestate, and that the value of her property was $7,000.

Catherine's birth reported in Ireland on some census and in Scotland on other census. On her prison record she reported her birth on 26 July 1826 in Leith, Midlothian, Scotland. A family legend says she was a runaway from a castle. The link to father is based on Catherine Jane Brack as a witness at the marriage of her brother William Doig with the other witness Robert Gordon Doig.

 

In 1861 Catherine Doig (36 Ireland) was the wife of Christopher Brack at 33 Collier Street, Greengate, Salford, Lancashire with 7 children. She was not in the household in the 1871 cenus.

Notes by Chris Doig:

PENAL RECORDS of CATHERINE BRACK (nee Doig)

 

Catherine had several aliases: Catherine Brack, Elizabeth Hodson, Elizabeth Scholes, Catherine Doig and Catherine Scholes.  These display a lack of imagination on Catherine’s behalf - she used her married name, her maiden name and the name of her daughter-in-law, Elizabeth Hodson.

This first record shows that Catherine was a charwoman aged 49 years.  She was married to Christopher Brack with whom she had nine children.  She was convicted for larceny in Salford involving the stealing of thirty six yards of linen cloth, the property of John Button, for which she was sentenced to seven years at Fulham Prison followed by seven years police supervision.  On admission to Fulham she was described as having good health, 'indifferent' conduct' and she could read and write imperfectly.  She was 5ft 2.5 inches, weighing 130 lbs, with sallow complexion and dark brown hair.  She had lost all upper front teeth and had several distinguishing marks including a scar of left wrist and a cut on right temple.  It says she was Church of England.

  _The record shows she had previous convictions in 1864 for stealing ten handkerchiefs at Salford for which she was sentenced to 2 months, in 1866 for stealing one shirt at Salford for which she was sentenced to 3 months, in 1867 for stealing 5 yards of calico for which she was sentenced to one month, and in 1869 for stealing 6 yards of flannel for which she was sentenced to one year. __In prison Catherine was employed as a knitter and cleaner.  The papers record each application she made to the Prison Governor - these are heartbreaking - for example - in May 1872 within 6 months of her arrival in Fulham she applies 'to ask if she might shake hands with her children when they visit her'.  The application was refused by the superintendent although later granted by the Prison Director.  In November 1872 she asks for special paper to write to her children - which was granted 'under special circumstances'.  In May 1873 she asked to be removed from her duties as cleaner in the Chapel - refused.

  _The records also list her prison offences - 1873 for baking 2 large pies on the stove in the old laundry for which she received one day's confinement, in 1874 for having a light burning in her cell at 4.45am also for having a candle, some pieces of lucifer matches and other articles concealed for which she received 3 days close confinement and 21 days separate confinement.  __Her medical history only shows a black eye and bruised cheek from a fall whilst in Millbank Prison before being moved to Fulham in 1871. The record lists each letter she received and sent.  It is interesting to see that she wrote to her husband on only one occasion in 1872 although he died in 1874 so perhaps he was in poor health.  She sent and received regular letters from some of her children.  During the whole period she was in prison she appeared to have one visitor in May 1875, presumably from her children.

_She was released from Fulham under licence in 1875 to the refuge in Russell House in Streatham.   __1878

The second penal record shows Catherine had returned to Salford where she was up to her old tricks.  In March 1878 she caught for stealing three shirts, the property of John Dring.  She was sentenced for 10 years and a further period of 7 years police supervision.  She was still being described as a charwoman, now a widow with nine children, aged 56 years 9 months.  The record shows that she was a ‘Dissenter’ as regards religion.

 

On admission to Woking Prison, she was dark complexion, grey hair, brown eyes, 5ft 1.5 inches, and slight build. She was said to have ears pierced, slight scar on right side of face, and lost all teeth but one.  She was classified as being weak and having a malformed chest and 'v.v.leg' whatever that is, and fit only for light work.  Her occupation in prison was needlework.  __In  December 1882 she sent a petition to the Secretary of State - praying for some mitigation of her long and painful sentence, pleading that she is 60 years of age and that her family are anxious and willing to receive her before her health utterly fails.  The petition was refused on account of ‘no grounds’.

 

In July 1884 she broke the rules by throwing two parcels containing tea leaves and stewed meat to C.H. 154 Wilson in the Messroom.  She was punished by making her forfeit her berth.  In December 1884 she was caught having a light in her cell for the purpose of cooking at 12.45pm.  She was given 7 days separation in the penal ward and to forfeit her special class.

 

Catherine was released on licence in December 1884.  She died 14th January 1888.

 

It is interesting from a family history point of view that Catherine told the Authorities that she was born on 26 July 1826 at Leith, Edinburgh, Scotland.  Now, obviously we don't know if the information is correct, but it is the very first clue we have as to where to the family may have come from in Scotland.

 

Catherine married (MRIN:206) Christopher Brack. Christopher was born in 1822/1823 in Scotland. He died in Oct/Dec 1874 in Salford, Lancashire, England.

In 1841 Christopher Brack (20 not ML) was a smith lodging at 8 Canal Street, Edinburgh. In 1851 he (29 Ireland) was a mechanic residing at 6 Catcliffe Street, Salford, Greengate, Lancashire, England with his wife Katharine (25 Ireland) and children Christopher and Katherine. In 1861 he was an agricultural merchant of mechanics residing at 33 Collier Street, Salford, Lancashire, England with his wife Catharine and 7 children. In 1871 he was an agricultural machine fitter residing at 49 Queen Street, Greengate, Salford with children Andrew, Clara, Agnes, Sarah, Eliza, and William; his wife Catherine was in prison for larceny.

 

Christopher's reported age at death was 54, or born 1819/20 (Reg. #8d-60).

In 1841 Christopher Doyge (15 Lancashire) was an iron smith residing at Bk Ln Street (Back Lane), London Road, Manchester. He was an engine smith.  The family lived for as short time in Liverpool where sons Hugh and Alexander were born. In 1848 he was a mechanic at 52 Bradford Road, Manchester. In June 1850 they lived at 5 Russell Square, Hulme, Lancashire. In 1851 Christopher [Day] (26 Scotland) was a smith residing at 46 Lloyd Street, Hulme with his wife Christiana   (27 Liverpool), sons Hugh (2 Liverpool) and Alexander (10 months Liverpool), and a lodger Robert Doig (14 Liverpool), apprentice joiner. In 1852 he was a blacksmith at 56 Juniper Street, Hulme.

 

They then moved to Brazil where Christopher worked in a job maintaining the English Naval Fleet, which was based there. The family legend is that after the birth of their son Christopher in Brazil in 1852, Christopher Sr. ran away from his domineering wife and the children by jumping on a ship; he was supposedly never again seen by his wife or children. A Mr. Doig sailed as a passenger on the ship "Nancy" from Oporto, Rio de Janeiro and arrived at New South Wales, Australia on 17 Dec 1853.

 

However, in 1861 Christopher Doig [Deig in index, age and place of birth not given. name "X"ed out] was an apprentice white smith residing in the village of Ness, Cheshire, England with his wife Christiana (37 Liverpool) and sons Hugh (12 Liverpool) and Christopher (8 Liverpool). It appears he had already departed.

 

Christopher sailed on the "Hibernia" on 7 Mar 1868 from New York and arrived at Glasgow on 21 Mar 1868.

 

Chirstoper returned to Brooklyn in 1868, and in 1869 he lived with his brother Alexander at 406 Hicks, Brooklyn, Kings Co., NY.

 

Christopher committed suicide by an overdose of laudanum, six days after his brother Alexander had died.  He was placed 23 Apr 1869 in a receiving tomb until the ground thawed for burial.

 

Obituary: Brooklyn Daily Eagle, April 23, 1869.

Suicide by Taking Laudunum. - Christopher Doig, thirty-nine years of age, residing at No. 406 Hicks street, died at his residence yesterday.

A verdict was rendered in accordance with the facts.

 

Obituary: New York Times, April 24, 1869.

In 1841 Christine Mackay was a field servant living on Tysen Street, Islington, Liverpool.

 

After being abandoned by Christopher, Christiana and the 3 boys did not stay in South America long.  The death certificate of the second son, Alexander, shows that Christiana must have returned to England with the boys by April 1855.  She settled in Ness, a hamlet near Neston in the Wirral to be near the families of her brother, John Mackay, and her married sister, Ann Cabry, where they ran the village pub, the "Wheatsheaf" and a farm.

I am a historian of the Florida Keys and looking for information on Robert Doig, who appears on the muster roll of U.S. steamship Mohawk in 1860.

Memorial: Greatly respected and much esteemed was Mr John J. Dean, of Albany-road, Douglas, whose death took place on Thursday, May 31st, at Hoylake. Mr Dean, who was the younger son of Mr George A. Dean, photographic artist, of Rugby (formerly of Douglas), caught a chill about a fortnight ago as the result of a long wait at a railway station, following upon a hurried walk. Pleurisy developed, and there were other complications which proved too, much for a constitution none too robust. His condition gradually grew worse, and eventually he succumbed. Mr Dean was of sunny disposition, and was a great favourite with a. large circle of friends. He took a great interest in the welfare of St. George's Church, Douglas, he being, a regular worshipper there. For any years he was a sidesman, and he was one of the hon. secretaries of the Freewill Offering Fund in connection with the church. Before the war he represented the Isle of Man the firm of Samuel Hanson and Son, wholesale grocery dealers, but upon the establishment of the enemy alien detention camp at Knockaloe he was appointed as assistant to Capt. Cowle, the construction officer at the Camp.

47.  Rev. Hugh Doig (Christopher John, Robert, William) was born on 10 Jun 1848 in Liverpool, Lancashire, England. He was christened in Jun 1850 in St. George's Chapel, Hulme, Lancashire, England. He died on 31 Dec 1918 in Parbold, England.

Some of his early years were spent in Pernambuco, Brazil.  Returning to Liverpool he worked in a shipping office.  He always cherished the hope of being a clergyman, and at last, after a lay-readership in the Liverpool parish and theological training at St Aidans College, Birkenhead, he was ordained in 1872 by the Bishop of Durham.  Of this happy event, speaking 30 years after, Mr Doig said; "The day I was ordained I felt there was noone in the world with whom I would have exchanged callings, and now after 30 years in the service of the Church of England I bless God that I was nurtured in it".

 

Hugh’s first curacy was that of Esh, a mining village, near Durham.  He once rushed in between two sturdy colliers, who were fighting for a wager, one of whom declared that he would make daylight through him if he did not mind his own business; but the fight did not come off.  The colliers soon got to know and like him, and he used to recall the happy days and nights he spent among them.  From Esh he went to St. Georges Church, Bolton, a busy town parish, where he broke down in health through overwork.  Thence he sought a less laborious sphere of work in a country parish of Eccelston, where he remained seven years.

 

In 1881 Hugh was the Curate of Eccleston residing at Hyham House, Eccleston in Chorley, Lancashire with his wife Sarah Ann, children Joseph G., Gertrude, Florence, Lilian, Harold S., a servant Louisa M. Blackstone, age 17 from Croston, Lancashire, and a visitor Mary A. Ridzard, age 42 from Leigh, Lancashire. [Note: He is incorrectly recorded in the census as Hugh Day.]

 

In 1883 Bishop Fraser appointed him to the benefice of Saddleworth, where he labored until 1911 when health reasons compelled him resign, to his great regret.  On one occasion, speaking after 20 years' connection with Saddleworth, he said that no parish can ever be to me what Saddleworth has been.  The time may come when I shall find myself unequal to the task of traversing the hills and valleys of Saddleworth and shepherding the people who live on and in them, but I cannot contemplate parting with my people without a pang".

 

In the 1891 census Hugh was Vicar of Saddleworth reising at the Vicarage with his wife Sarah and children Florence, Ada, Jessie, Ellis, Ernest, and Hugh.

 

Hugh had been in a controversy, the split the parishioners of Saddleworth down the middle.  It caused Hugh sufficient distress to seriously affect his health from which he never fully recovered.  It started in 1898 when Hugh "applied for a faculty" (i.e. submitted a proposal) to change the layout of the church.  At the Vestry meeting of 18th February 1898 twelve voted for the proposal and twenty against.  It was re-submitted to another meeting on 18th July 1899 when fifty-two voted for and fifty-four voted against.

 

In 1901 Hugh was a clergyman in Saddleworth with his daughters Florence and Jessie.

 

The book on the "History of the Chapelry and Church of Saddleworth" records that "There was nothing in the application that any reasonable Churchman  could take exception to.  Nothing was intended which had not been accomplished in scores or hundreds of other parish churches, with advantage and ultimate general approval.  Much of the opposition was factitious and unintelligent, most of it genuine.  In course of time without precipitation, approval would have been gained".  It continues, "But the Vicar, about this time, had the misfortune to make a commendatory reference to Dr. Pusey and the leaders of the Oxford Movement in one of his sermons, from which moment began a general and overwhelming opposition to what was conceived to be a preliminary move in the direction of a Romanised Church".

 

The application for the Faculty was successfully opposed and the situation became worse.  "Mistakes, no doubt, were made on both sides.  The Vicar attacked and replied to his opponents in the Parish Magazine.  The local newspapers of the times testify to the high feeling and general interest in the number of letters, pro and contra, published in the correspondence columns.  The affair had a marked effect on the Vicar's health, from which he never made a complete recovery.  Through all this trouble, and, as it now seems, useless rancor, he never lost the respect and affection of parishioners."

 

"Had Mr. Doig sought his faculty later it is possible that he would have obtained it.  On more than one occasion, his people subsequently proved  in substantial fashion their regard and esteem, which after all, is the greatest and most enduring victory to have achieved.  Owing to failing health Mr. Doig resigned the living in 1912. "

 

During the last few years of his ministry, Hugh took several long breaks, presumably to help restore his health.  In 1906 he sailed to Madeira and Teneriffe. Theyn in 1908 he took Sarah on a long holiday in the Canary Islands, and on their return to Plymouth, he did not rush back to Saddleworth and his work. Instead, they traveled on to spend three weeks in Torquay, sufficient long for Hugh to request his mail to be addressed there. It would appear from Jessie's postcard collection that they spent another three weeks at Torquay.

 

In the summer of 1910, Hugh and Sarah visited their son, Ellis, in Canada.  They crossed the Atlantic in the steamship "The Virginian" sailing from Liverpool to Montreal. Ellis had been living in Canada since 1906.  To meet him, Hugh and Sarah took a five-day train ride on the Canadian Pacific Railway across the continent to Vancouver.  When it came time to return, Ellis escorted them back to Montreal and they visited Toronto and Niagara Falls.  The whole journey lasted about 3 months.

 

In the following year, Hugh and Sarah went to Switzerland where according to a postcard they saw an airship crash down into Lake Lucerne.

 

In the 1911 census Hugh lived in Saddlesworth with wife Sarah Ann and children Jessie Mary, Ellis Christopher, Ernest Theodore, and Hugh Norman.

 

In 1912 on his retirement, Hugh moved with the family to Sunny Mount, Parbold where he lived until his death in 1918.  He is buried in Eccleston Church.

 

During his retirement his health gradually failed, and at the age of 70, on the last day of the old year, he passed peacefully to his rest and joy, freed now from the trammels of his afflictions.  He is mourned by a widow and nine sons and daughters.  His mortal life is over, but he lives on in the hearts of those he leaves behind, and in the hearts of all those who remember him as a faithful pastor, a loving friend, and a wise counselor.

 

The Probate of Hugh's will was £2335 5s 0d, of which he left £200 to his wife.  The rest had to be invested by his trustees, Joseph & Harry Hobson, and the income given to Sarah during her lifetime.  He laid down strict rules what they could invest in - they had to derive an interest of at least 3% and no investment had to made in Ireland.  On Sarah's death, the estate was to be spilt amongst his children.  The only other specific bequest was that of £600 for the maintenance and accommodation of the sons, Ernest and Hugh, whilst they were graduating at Durham and Oxford Universities.

3/3/1917 Ernest      Miss Fairclough   Blackpool   Malta Strada St Lucia   Army Post Office  Addressed to 13 Bright Street: My dearest E, I went to a rattling good concert last night which I enjoyed very much.  There is a splendid big marquee here for concerts.  It is an ideal day & the sea is so blue.  I have met a Corporal here from the I.O.M.  He knows so many of the people I knew best at Braddan, so that I am quite glad to come across him.  I believe there are several more Manx boys here.  I hope to go to H.C. & Mattins & Evensong tomorrow.  Love E.

7/3/1917 Ernest      Miss Fairclough   Blackpool   Maltese Lady   Army Post Office  My dear E, this is a card of Maltese lady with one of the veils on which I told you about.  They look all right, don’t they?  Another perfect day.  Keep all these cards I am sending you.  I should love to bring you here sometime - perhaps someday.  Hope you are all well.  Love, ever yours, Ernest.

11/3/1917      Ernest      Miss Fairclough   Blackpool   Malta Old Barriera Army Post office  Addressed to 13 Bright Street: My dearest E, I have been to Holy Communion & Morning Service this morning.  I am going to Bible Class this afternoon.  Someone has told the Chaplin that I am a priest so he is going to do his best to keep me here to help him.  I went to a splendid Concert last night given by the British Red Cross party, also to one last Wednesday night.  I went into Valetta last Friday with the Corporal from the I.O.M. & had a good time.  I was on the walls shown on this card.  Love Ernest.

15/3/1917      Ernest      Emmie None  Steamer: Llandovery Castle    None  Address: A. T.Ward, Spinola Hospital, Malta.  My Darling.  This is the ship I came on & on which Jack Hirst works.  It was not a Hospital Ship when this photo was taken.  I was in B Ward where I have marked the cross.  We had a most happy Service last night.  I was to have left here next week but yesterday the Chaplin asked that I should be allowed to stop, so I am here for some time anyway.  I am acting definitely now as Assistant Chaplin.  I am preaching next Sunday morning.  I was in Valetta yesterday afternoon, but it was very windy and dusty.  Will you please send me some stamp edging in your next letter.  They will give it you at the P.O.  I want it to stick down these envelopes.  They have precious little gum on them.  I can get John Bull here & see it every week, so don’t buy any more.  I am sending this in an envelope because I don’t think it would get through otherwise, since it is now a Hospital Ship.  All love, Emily, my Lovely Girlie.  Ever yours, Ernest.      On the front cover under picture of Union-Castle Line East African Steamer “Llandovery Castle” Ernest noted:  Embarked Friday 23rd February 1917.  Sailed Sunday afternoon 25th February 1917.  Arrived St Pauls Bay, Malta Wednesday 28th February 1917.  Disembarked Grand Harbour, Valetta Thursday 1st March 1917.

17/3/1917      Ernest      Miss Fairclough   Blackpool   Malta Fort Lascaria Army Post office  My dear Emmie, had tea with the Chaplin & his wife yesterday.  They have a lovely garden with orange, lemon, fig & almond trees, also vines all over the place.  The lemon trees were weighed down with & one orange tree had plenty on, but they were not yet ripe enough for plucking.  The sea is very rough today & looks fine.  I have shifted to another bed this morning since the rain came in on me all last night.  Hope to hear from you next week.  Much love, Ernest.

23/3/1917      Ernest      Miss Fairclough   Blackpool   Malta Country Girls    Army Post Office  Contents crossed out and unreadable

27/3/1917      Ernest      Miss Fairclough   Blackpool   Malta St Johns   Army Post Office  Addressed to 13 Bright Street: My dearest Emmie, this is about the finest Church here.  I have not been to see it yet, but I intend going before long.  They managed to get the boat off the rocks this morning.  I mentioned it in the letter I wrote yesterday.  I should think you now get quite a lot of my letters etc by the same mail.  Love Ernest.

31/3/1917      Ernest      Miss Fairclough   Blackpool   Malta St Julians Pembroke Camp      Army Post Office  My dearest E, I received your 40th letter (the very long one) & your 41st enclosed in the magazine last night.  I was very glad to have them.  I am preaching here & at St Ignatius’s Hospital tomorrow night.  Hope to write a letter within a few days.  It is very hot here & the glare of the sun tries the eyes.  All love, Ernest.

11/4/1917      Ernest      Miss Fairclough   Blackpool   Malta Marsamuscetta  Army Post Office  Spinola: Addressed to 18 Bagot Street: My dear E, So many thanks for beautiful Easter card which I received this morning.  It came last night.  I cross to this landing stage every time I go into Valetta from Sliema.  I have written to Mother this morning.  A man here has made me a little stove just big enough to boil a cup full of water with methylated spirits.  He has made it out of an old Nestlé’s Milk Tin.  I am getting some fine letters from some of the men after they leave here.  If I send any of them, keep them on one side.  All love, Ernest.

12/4/1917      Ernest      Emmie None  Ghain Tuffieha Convalescent Camp   None  My own Darling, this is one of the 2 huge convalescent camps here.  This is about 15 miles from here.  If I had been sent away from here I should have first have gone here or to the other camp.  I enclose the University College Durham Roll of Honour.  Take care of it, Lassie.  You will notice most of them are Chaplins.  Yesterday Mr & Mrs Read, a married couple, Kent, a V.G.D. nurse & myself went a most delightful picnic to Citta Vecchia & Boscetto Gardens.  I did enjoy myself.  It was lovely being able talk to English girls once more.  All love, Lassie & kisses, yours, Ernest.

20/4/1917      Ernest      Miss Fairclough   Blackpool   Malta-Floriana   Army Post Office  Addressed to 18 Bagot Street:  My dear Emily, Floriana is part of Valetta & I have been past here many times.  There was a concert here last night.  I am going out this afternoon & to a concert tonight in Valetta.  On Sunday, I am preaching here in the morning & at St Ignatius’ at night.  It was a wild night last night - thunder and lightening.  The tent was flapping about.  All Love, Ernest.

26/4/1917      Ernest      Miss Fairclough   Blackpool   Maltese Milk Seller   Army Post Office  My dear Emmie, in great haste.  Expecting to move any minute now.  Don’t write any more to me here.  Love Ernest.  I don’t know where to.

30/4/1917      Ernest      Miss Fairclough   Blackpool   Malta Musta Dome     Army Post Office  My dear Emmie, still her, but ready to go any day.  I went in this place last Friday night on my way to Interfe??? We have to put stamps now on our letters etc (this is only while at Malta).  Going out with Kent this afternoon.  We intend going to the Chapel of Bones for one place.  I did not go to St Ignatius’s last night after all.  I went to the Boppacca?? Church as a member of the congregation.  Many thanks for your 2 letters written April 12th & April 15th which I received yesterday.  All love, Yours, Ernest.

5/5/1917 Ernest      Emmie None  Spinola Hospital Church None  Spinola Hospital Church, Malta: Confirmation Service held here by the Right Reverend, The Lord Bishop of Buckingham.  Tuesday Afternoon 26th April 1917.  My dearest Emmie, here is a card of our lovely little Church.  The Lectern was carved by a Sergeant in the K.R.R.’s - the regiment I wanted to join.  The battalion I wished to join is in France, I believe.  Anyway one of the Curates who joined them has recently been killed.  All love, Ernest.

9/5/1917 Ernest      Miss Fairclough   Blackpool   Malta Custom House   Army Post Office  Addressed to 18 Bagot Street: My dearest E, Have heard I am leaving here next Saturday - probably for Ghia Tuffiche.  I sent you a card of the place.  Kent is also going.  We are intending going out this afternoon.  The sun is blazing hot.  All Love, E.

18/5/1917      Ernest      Miss Fairclough   Blackpool   Malta Weslyan Church   Army Post Office  All Soul’s Active Service Camp, Malta.  My dear E, I am taking Evensong tonight at All Saints.  On Sunday morning I am taking Celebration here in the Y.M.C.A. tent.  There is no Church Tent in this camp.  I went to Evensong last night at Pembroke Church.  Nothing fresh.  All love, Ernest.

27/5/1917      Ernest      Miss Fairclough   Blackpool   Malta Chapel of Bones    Army Post Office  All Souls’ Active Service Camp.  My dear E, I was in here some weeks ago.  In it there are the bones of 2000 people.  The skeleton on the left hand is of a Maltese woman who was killed.  They only have service here once a year - Mass on All Soul’s Day in November.  I celebrated this morning in the Y.M.C.A. tent at All Soul’s at 8am, Parade Services in the Australian Hall at 9.30a; helped Yates at the H.C. Service in the Australian Hall at 10.30am.  Came down to the Big Draw for the Bible Class at 3pm, have had tea here & at 7pm I preach at the Y.M.C.A. Service at All Soul’s.  Hope to write you a letter soon.  All love, Ernest.

31/5/1917      Ernest      Miss Fairclough   Blackpool   Malta Citta Vecchia  Army Post Office  All Soul’s Active Service Camp:  My dear E, this is where I came on the picnic with Mr Reed & the others.  St Paul was shipwrecked not far from here & I believe he preached here.  I am going to Evensong at the Pembroke Church tonight.  The Concert at the Australian Hall last night was a feeble show.  I expect to have a move on before long now.  All love, Ernest.

5/7/1917 Ernest      Emmie None  Salonique Rue Venizelos None  My dearest Emmie, I have not received any letters from you except your long one.  I know you must have written since, so I am afraid they have gone down in the Mediterranean.  Still blazing hot, I can tell you.  I should be able to stick the heat in England when I return.  The Russians are on the move again which is well. My cholera inoculation did not trouble me at all.  A mail arrives here tomorrow so I may hear from you.  All love Ernest.

27/6/1917      Ernest      Emmie None  Salonique - while disjointing the Zepplin  None  My dearest E, I have sent you a Balkans News.  Notice the date of it - ‘Thursday 26th June’.  Yesterday was the 26th & it was Tuesday not Thursday.  I took Evensong last night.  The Chaplin is away & has left the services to me for a few days.  I only bought 2 cards of the Confirmation Group & the other I sent to Mother.  I had a snapshot taken of me last Friday afternoon.  I had been with another man to a Turkish Village not far away (Salonica had been under Turkish control until about 1912)  & he took it on our return journey.  Am longing for the return of all troops to England & to see you again.  Keep smiling.  All my love Ernest.

28/6/1917      Ernest      Emmie None  Salonique   None  My dearest Emmie, I had a nice little parcel from Hughie & Nora yesterday.  It has been following me around.  There was a tin of treacle toffee in it.  The lid had come off & the sweets were sticking to everything else.  I have heaps of letters to write & I get so very little time for it.  I am more or less tied to my work from 5.30am to 8.30pm.  All love, Lassie.  Good bye, Ernest

29/6/1917      Ernest      Emmie None  Souvenir de Salonique   None  My dearest E, I am afraid your parcel & letters are at the bottom of the sea.  We have been told here that quite a number of mails have been lost.  I hope you have received my parcels safely.  I took Celebration here this morning.  The Chaplin returned yesterday.  He visits other parts of the line, & has quite a lot of work to do.  The flies here are a perfect pest and they do bite.  That anti-fly cream of Boots is useless.  I have written to Mr Williams to send Mother the money I owe her.  All love, Lassie, Ernest.

3/7/1917 Ernest      Emmie None  Salonique - Musique     None  My dearest Emily, I was inoculated against cholera yesterday, but cholera inoculations are all right & there are no ill effects after them.  I am a firm believer in inoculation & they can give me as many as they wish.  I went for a walk yesterday with a man called Greenway.  We went to the French & Serbia Cemeteries.  I asked Greenway to take a photo of the boy I buried last November.  I will send it to his people.  It will please them.  The 2 photos Greenway took of me the other day are splendid - one especially so - undoubtedly the best photo I have ever had taken.  (He took a photo of me & my 2 other fellow workers outside our cookhouse yesterday.  Nothing fresh.  All love, Ernest.

8/7/1917 Ernest      Emmie None  Salonique Military Band None  My dearest E.  Nothing much has been happening lately.  My time is well filled in & the work I am on (the Sergeants Mess) keeps me going all day long.  I scarcely ever finish before 9pm from 6am.  However work is the best thing for keeping healthy.  There was a concert here last night which was quite good.  I am preaching tonight.  Lassie, take care of yourself.  All love, Yours Ernest.

6/9/1917 Erenst      Emmie None  Edessa Kipri      None  My dearest Emmie, I was where the children are on this card last Saturday.  It all looks very nice & picturesque, but we all long for British scenery again & English people.  I was up just after 3 am this morning.  A convoy of casualties came in & I volunteered to assist.  It is all in a days work.  I intended writing Mother a letter today, but I can see it is not going to come off.  I must write a card, though.  All love, Ernest.

30/9/1917      Ernest      Emmie None  Edessa Moulin a eau     None  My dearest Emmie, I started on another job yesterday afternoon.  I am now working on the water section.  Twice a day I go round the hospital with a water cart drawn by 2 mules & driven by an Algerian (French Colonial Troops) filling great barrels.  I like the work all right & hope to be on it for some time.  I am preaching tonight.  I was able to get to Holy Communion this morning.  I hope to be able to get to this place one afternoon this week.  We call it Vodena, not Edessa.  There is a rumour that we are going to start drill again this week.  If so, I expect it will be at nights - it is too hot during the day.  I received Mother’s parcel the other day & a very nice parcel it was.  Have finished my work for today.  I have only to … for quinine at 5.45pm.  All love, Yours, Ernest.

1/10/1917      Ernest      Emmie None  Salonique - La Tour Blanche   None  My dearest E, I was hoping a mail would be in, but no.  I want to hear something definite about Alice? I did …. very near this White Tower when I returned from Malta.  My work on the Water Section finished this morning & I am on G.D.O. again - the best job in the place.  Of course it is dirty & hard & we work now through the heat of the day.  I told a Nurse yesterday when she asked me if I would not prefer to be working in a ward that I was on the best job in the place.  There are very few men who like being in the wards.  Reveille is now at 6am,so we have another ½ hour in bed.  All love, Ernest.

9/11/1917      Ernest      Emmie None  Edessa Prefecture None  My dearest Lassie, I have written to Minnie & I do hope that I have been able to help her.  I wish I could come to you all.  I am going to write to Kitty now that it seems quite certain that Alan has been killed.  I have had a splendid sleep before coming on duty tonight.  What do you think of this joke which was in the Balkan News?  I think it excellent.  It is so true. “From a Dublin journal we take the following:” “Chatterton Road Church; Evening Subject” “Salonica; its first Church” “Mrs Vissom will sing ‘Entreat me not to leave Thee!” “If Mrs Visson lived here she might have to change her tune.”  Lassie, nothing fresh yet.  I hope by this time you have managed to get to Ashton.  All love, Ernest.

10/10/1917     Ernest      Emmie None  Salonique - Lemonade Merchant   None  My dearest Emmie, just another card.  One of the Welsh boys died last Saturday night or early Sunday morning at the 36th.  He was buried last Sunday in the afternoon.  I went to the funeral.  T.L. Davies (one of the Unit - a congregational minister who used to be in Sheffield) took the service.  I started a letter to Mother last night & I expect it will be several nights before I finish it.  I am writing them an account of our trip to Vodena last Thursday & I am writing it in a humorous strain.  She might possibly send you the letter.  I have been “runner” today - otherwise going messages here and there.  I have been to an aerodrome etc etc.  ‘Lists Post’ just blown so must be off.  Love Ernest.

12/10/1917     Ernest      Emmie None  Edessa Rue Centrale     None  My dearest Emmie, It is almost a fortnight since I have heard from you, but we are expecting a mail every day.  I have been on convoy again today.  I find it quite interesting.  I have finished my long letter to Mother.  It is all about my last trip to Vodena written from the point of view of an unseen spectator or companion.  Mother might send you the letter on although I have not asked her to do so.  It has been much hotter again today.  I hope you receive these cards.  All love, Yours, Ernest.

14/10/1917     Ernest      Emmie None  Salonique - Le Quais Pavoises   None  My dearest Emmie, I have just taken Matins.  I am working in the Orderly Room again.  My word the rain has come down the last two days.  It makes everything very unpleasant but in spite of its unpleasantness, I think it is preferable to the extreme heat.  Still no mail from you.  I did have a letter from Mr Williams, Llandrindod Wells last Friday.  He is longing to have all his boys (as he calls us) back at Llandrindod when the war is over.  We expect a mail in tomorrow.  I hope to hear from you.  By the way Kent owed me about 10/- or so when I left Malta & he had no opportunity of paying me back.  He is now in England (or at least he was when he wrote to me) & he suggested sending what he owed me to you, so I have written & asked him to send whatever he owes me to you, so if he should do so, please thank him.  Nothing fresh, much love.  Yours always, Ernest

20/11/1917     Ernest      Emmie None  Vladovon Cataracte      None   1am.  My dearest Emmie, I am on duty, just had my dinner.  It is a lovely night, but bitterly cold.  I am going to Salonique in our motor lorry this morning, leaving here at 6.30am.  I shall get no sleep but this is a mere detail.  I shall make my way in the afternoon to the 38th General where William is & I shall spend the night there.  On Wednesday morning I shall see the Principal Chaplin.  He is an R.C. with the mark of a General, I believe.  I am due back here sometime before Wednesday mid-night.  I shall probably leave here for my new appointment in about 10 days.  By the way did I ever acknowledge your 102th letter (dated Oct 24th)?  I received it last Monday, the 12th November).  Hope to write a letter on my return.  All love, & kisses, Ernest.

30/10/1917     Ernest      Emmie None  Salonique   None  My dearest Emmie, Here is another card of the town of Salonique.  It looks all right on the card, but when one is there it is a filthy place.  However I believe most of it is now burnt down & a fairer town may rise in its place, but never a clean town, because the people have no idea of what cleanliness means.  We talk of the glories of Ancient Greece - well, I would not like to live here.  I took service yesterday morning & then went off to bed.  Tonight & the last few evenings have been great.  The moon is almost full and as light as the day.  Greenway is at Salonique again on duty.  I asked him if he saw any nice beads (pale pink) to buy some.  There was a mail in today, but only received a Church Times.  Another Welsh Co boy died last Sunday at the 36th & was buried yesterday.  He died of malaria.  A week ago or so he seemed in perfect health.  I hope to write you a letter in a day or so & tell you some good news.  Don’t think I am coming home.  No space on here to tell you about it.  All love & kisses, Ernest

2/11/1917      Ernest      Emmie None  Salonique- Le quais     None  All Souls Bay:  My dearest Emmie, just another card.  This is the 14th picture postcard I have sent you since returning.  I wonder if you have received them all.  Will you let me know, Lassie?  I managed to get to Holy Communion yesterday & hope to get at 6.45am this morning.  By the way, Sweet, I have sent you another £4 which I hope you will hear about before long.  I could have sent you a little more but have put in for 60 drachmas for myself.  60 drachmas = £2 10s.  I am so glad I can send you money like this & I hope to send you much more before very long.  This money has but one end in view, and I expect you can guess what that is.  Greenway tried to get me the kind of bead you wished to have when in Salonique but could not.  Perhaps I will have better success.  Nothing fresh so will close.  All love & kisses, Ernest.

6/11/1917      Ernest      Emmie None  Salonique Panorama      None  My dearest Emmie, it is just about 4.30am.  Many thanks for 98th letter (dated Oct 14th) & 99th (dated Oct 15th), both of which I received yesterday.  I also had the Church Times & a letter from Ken Harris’s sister.  You will remember I wrote to Ken’s mother shortly after Mother told me Ken had been killed.  Ken was killed on 31st July.  A tiny piece of shrapnel struck Ken behind the ear & penetrated the brain.  Ken never knew his death because it was instantaneous.  He had been out in one of the worst parts of the Line - the Ypres Sector - for over 2 years. There had been an attack - the communication line had been broken & Ken & another man went to repair it.  Yesterday, Greenway went into hospital.  I have heard nothing further yet about going away but expect it will be soon.  I was weighed last Saturday & was just 9 stone, of course that is with 2 or 3 lbs weight of clothing on.  Emmie, all my love & kisses, Ernest.

11/11/1917     Ernest      Emmie None  Edessa Cataraete  None  My dearest Emmie.  I shall soon have sent you the set of these cards.  I received your 101st letter (dated 21st Oct) last Friday afternoon (9th Nov).  I also had a letter from Dick Hargreaves with a cutting from a B’pool paper about Bob Brocklebank being killed in action.  I am taking Matins this morning, I don’t expect I shall get to Church tonight.  I have written both to Minnie & Kitty.  I expect they will receive the letters before you get this card.  I have sent a Balkan News to Mrs Healey.  By the way let me have Annie Ward’s address & any others whom I might send a Balkan News to.  It might interest them.  Nothing fresh, all love, Ernest.

15/11/1917     Ernest      Emmie None  Edessa Maxedorus  None  My dearest Emmie, here is a card of a Turkish mosque.  I had a look inside one the last time I was in Vodena.  I did not go right in because I think they don’t like it & there were too many Turkish priests knocking about.  In fact they had just finished service & out of a congregation of 8 or 9 about 6 were priests.  This I think is the 18th card I have sent you since returning to Salonique.  Never have I seen lightening like last night.  It was magnificent.  It seems to be in great pale blue sheets & lights up all the mountains just for a moment.  Flashes were every 2 minutes or so.  The rain did come down, but now the weather is all right again.  Hope to have another letter soon.  All love & kisses, Ernest

17/11/1917     Ernest      Emmie None  Edessa (Vodena), Macedonia   None  My dearest Emmie.  I am writing this in one of my wards.  There is an awful gale of wind blowing & it is awful being under canvas when the wind blows.  For almost 3 hours I have been tightening up ropes etc & the limp being blown out every minute or so.  Seven of the smaller tents are down.  It is fearfully cold tonight & sitting still a while makes it seem even colder.  One of my German boys is very ill suffering from dysentery.  Oh!  He is thin, Lassie.  You can’t imagine it possible that a person could live when so very thin.  I am going to Salonique probably on Sunday, Monday or Tuesday for an interview with the Principal Chaplin.  Everything seems fixed up now.  I am awfully tired & sleepy & am having great difficulty in keeping my eyes open.  All love, Ernest.

26/11/1917     Ernest      Emmie None  Edessa Kipri      None  My dearest Emmie, Yesterday I took Matins & helped at Evensong.  This is the last card I can send you of Vodena.  I have one more but I am afraid it would not be passed by the Censor since it is a card of the Railway Station.  Yesterday afternoon I was out with Greenway & we took several photos.  I saw an aeroplane come down.  The aviator was coming down purposely, but his landing did not come off & the aeroplane came down with an awful smash, & all the framework was smashed.  Hundreds of pounds gone in a few moments.  Fortunately neither the pilot nor observer were killed.  In fact they were not even hurt.  Greenway and I rushed up half expecting to find them both dead & horribly mangled, but neither of them got anything worse than a good shaking.  Nothing fresh, all love, Ernest.  Have had no mail now for a fortnight.

2/12/1917      Ernest      Emmie None  Aveugle Mendiant  None  My dearest Emmie, this is another card in the Constantinople series.  Yesterday afternoon we had a very exciting football match against the 36th Hospital.  It resulted in a draw - 2goals each.  I have heard nothing more about going away.  I printed and fixed some great photos yesterday including 2 or 3 of Malta.  Kent said in his last letter to me that he wished he was back in Malta with me.  What a grand time we did have there!  I must have about 150 photos now & they will make a fine collection.  There are very few I can send you because the censor would not pass them.  I do feel sleepy.  Goodbye, Darling.  All love, Ernest.

2/12/1917      Ernest      Emmie None  Happy Christmas from the Balkans   None  My dearest Emmie, this is the British Official Christmas Card.  I wish you every Blessing & Joy this Christmastide & a happy & holy 1918.  All love Ernest.  (On the front cover)  With apologies.  Heaps of kisses, Ernest.

11/12/1917     Ernest      Emmie None  Constantinople La Corne D’Or   None  My dearest Emmie, it has just gone midnight & I have just had a jolly good dinner.  Yesterday morning I had a good walk before turning in.  The extreme cold weather has given place to warmer weather for a time.  I preached last Sunday night.  We had a very bright service.  I took the morning service also & preached.  I am taking Holy Communion next Thursday.  I enjoyed reading the last magazine.  I always find it interesting.  The Concert party here are getting up a revue for Christmas.  Nothing fresh, Lassie.  All love, Ernest.

10/2/1918      Ernest      Emmie None  Constantinople Stamboul None  My dearest Emmie, Nothing fresh at all.  I took service this morning.  I went down to the 36th yesterday afternoon & saw a good many old friends.  There is to be a Concert next Tuesday.  Mr Carter will be away from tomorrow until next Saturday, so I am taking all the services through the week.  A year ago I was at the 28th General on my way to Malta.  I would not mind going again although I should wish Kent to be there.  All love.  Yours ever, Ernest.

19/2/1918      Ernest      Emmie None  Constantinople La Prairie de Beycos   None  My own Dearest, yesterday I received Mother’s parcel all safe & sound full of all manner of good things.  Last Saturday I received a nice parcel from the Davidsons - 2 tins of toffee & a tin of chocolate.  Then again a person insisted on my taking a parcel yesterday - just as this person had received it so I am very well off & am well provisioned.  I received a letter from Mrs Tom Webster 2 days ago.  I had sent her a Christmas Card with my photo, just like the one I sent you.  Well, she does not think it at all good.  She writes “you say it is very like you but my word you have changed.  It is not like Mr D. that left the Moss (this refers to Marton Moss, 2 miles south east of Blackpool).  I can see hardship on your face.  I shall not know you if you come back looking so thin & ill, but perhaps it is the hot weather.”  Thus the difference of opinions.  You think it is good & so do I. No room for more.  All love, Ernest.

20/2/1918      Ernest      Emmie None  Constantinople La Grande Muraille   None  My dearest Emmie, yesterday I sent you a remittance for £5.  Let me know when you receive it.  I have written quite a number of letters lately, letters I have been owing for months.  Just finished ten.  I took up the fine tin of biscuits Mother sent me & they have been thoroughly appreciated.  Let me know your plans if you do not stay at home.  I don’t want you to rush headlong into anything.  Draw on my money even if in time it all goes.  Nothing more.  All love & kisses.  Yours, Ernest.

22/2/1918      Ernest      Emmie None  Constantinople St Sophie   None  My dearest Emmie, the last letter I received from you came on the 12th Feb, so it will soon be a fortnight if no mail comes soon.  Our mail seems to come in spasms.  We had a fine concert last night given by the Follies (Salonique).  There was not a hint or trace of suggestiveness in the whole show & that is something one can’t say very often today if one goes to a Variety Show.  A sister here said to me that there was nothing to make them laugh uncomfortably - a remarkable thing for a sister or a nun to say.  However there are good ones amongst them.  It will soon be our Godchild’s birthday (Ellis’s son, Alec).  I wonder if you are still in Ashton!  Much love & kisses, Yours, Ernest.

28/2/1918      Ernest      Emmie None  Constantinople La Grand Cimetiere   None  My dearest Love, I have only one more card of Constantinople left which I will soon send.  Your holiday at Ashton will soon be at an end.  Ellis badly wants you to go down to London later on.  He has asked me to persuade you to go saying that you will do anything for me.  My knee is much better again.  I had to report about it on Tuesday & 2 X-ray photos were taken of it.  I have heard nothing more.  I shall be quite all right in a day or two.  All love.  Yours, Ernest.

2/3/1918 Ernest      Emmie None  Constantinople Mosque de Top-Hane   None  My dearest Emmie, here is my last card of Constantinople.  I am finding the little stove you sent me months ago very useful.  The 36th are giving us a Concert tonight.  The Concert Party is known as ‘The Gadgets’.  Our Concert Party call themselves ‘The Duds’.  I had tea with Dawson the other day at the 36th.  Things seem very quiet at present.  I expect you are back in Blackpool once more.  I wrote to Ellis the other day for Baby’s birthday.  My thoughts keep going back to Malta.  I was happy there.  Kent wishes he was back there with me.  Gob Bless the lad!  I wish I could show you the letter his mother wrote me.  All love, Ernest.

7/3/1918 Ernest      Emmie None  Salonique Dous Apotres  None  My dearest Emmie.  I expect you will have received my letter in the green envelope.  This card is of the Church of the Twelve Apostles.  (The following text was censored)  Nothing fresh.  Ernest.

13/3/1918      Ernest      Emmie None  Salonique Eglise St Sophie   None  My dearest Emmie.  So I arrived down here yesterday evening.  The march from the station was very tiring.  I found sleeping on the ground again very hard although I had a good night.  I don’t know where I shall be sent from here or how long I am likely to be here.  Greenway is also with me.  The same address as before when I was down here “R.A.M.C. Great Bare Depot, British Salonica Forces”.  Had a medical inspection this morning.  All well.  Love & kisses.  Ernest.

15/3/1918      Ernest      Emmie None  Salonique Inside St Sophies   None  My dearest Emmie, I am still down at the Bare & so far do not know what is going to be done with me.  Fred is still with me.  There are just ten of us left out of the number who came down.  By the way I asked a man to sew up a parcel to you before I left last Tuesday morning, so I hope you will get it all right.  Heaps of postcards are in it & a few photos.  We are having quite a busy time down here.  I hope to soon get some letters from you forwarded from the Hospital.  All love & kisses, yours Ernest.

22/3/1918      Ernest      Emmie None  Salonique St Theotocos  None  My dearest Emmie.  Still nothing fresh.  Fred & I had tea with Brigg yesterday.  He is a Church Army man whom I met at Malta & now he is here in charge of the Government Hut.  We were at Church last night - Choir Practice, Evensong & then a Mens Meeting.  It is quite cold this morning - yesterday it was quite hot.  I hope to send you a lot of the photos in a day or two.  The less one has to carry about the better.  I expect I shall be detached for somewhere or other next week.  All love, Ernest.

23/3/1918      Ernest      Emmie None  Salonique St Dimitrius  None  My dearest Emmie.  Have heard nothing fresh.  We were all persuaded to bathe yesterday.  It is not like having a bath at 37.  We are inspected before we go in to see if there are any visitors about us.  I am hoping to get out of Camp this afternoon to a big Boxing Contest which is going on.  We had some stiff drill yesterday.  How is Kitty getting on?  All love & kisses, Ernest.

25/4/1918      Ernest      Miss Fairclough   Blackpool   Salonique St Pantelemion    Field Post Office My dear E.  I received your 148th letter (dated 24th March) yesterday.  Many thanks.  The Sports come off tomorrow, I believe.  I will try to write a letter today or tomorrow.  Nothing fresh.  E.

26/3/1918      Ernest      Emmie None  Salonica Vlateon Mouni  None  My dearest Emmie, Many many thanks for 139th letter (received last Sunday & dated Feb 27th).  I received also a letter from Mother with several enclosures.  I have not been able to get to Holy Communion since I left the 37th.  I can’t make out from this letter whether you kissed the man behind the counter to get the butter.  It is all right if he is a decent chap.  Where is Mr Rigby now?  I was on fatigue yesterday.  Nothing fresh.  All love, Ernest

7/4/1918 Ernest      Miss Fairclough   Blackpool   Salonique Eglise St Sophie   Field Post Office My dear E.  Have had nothing from you since Palm Sunday, 24th March.  I expect there are heaps of letters following me round.  No Chaplin has called here today.  All well.  Much love, E.

14/4/1918      Ernest      Miss Fairclough   Blackpool   Salonique Refugees  Vardar Qtr Field Post office My dear E.  No work to do today.  Have written 3 letters.  I have still a good many photos yet to send.  No service today.  I don’t know when next I shall get a chance of getting to Holy Communion again.  Nothing fresh.  Ernest.

23/4/1918      Ernest      Miss Fairclough   Blackpool   Salonique Les Quais    Field Post Office Addressed to 18 Bagot Street:  My dear E, I returned to Headquarters last Thursday night & on Saturday afternoon I came here to train for some sports.  I intend going in for the obstacle race.  Having quite a good time here.  Address just the same.  Heard from Fred yesterday.  He has blackwater fever.  I expect he will be sent home.  All love.  Ernest

28/4/1918      Ernest      Miss Fairclough   Blackpool   Salonique Quai Niki     Field Post Office My dear E, The R.E.’s have had their sports today - band and everything needful in attendance.  The Ambulance Sports are continued tomorrow.  Sundays are the days I long for home most.  Managed to get to Holy Communion this morning.  I am afraid Jack Hirst wont have a good time now as he did on the Hospital Ship.  No more for now, Love E.

6/5/1918 Ernest      Miss Fairclough   Blackpool   Salonique Arc de Triomphe Field post office 18Bagot Street: My dear E, I am quite all right.  We slept in bivouacs for the 1st time last night.  Am getting as brown as a berry.  All love, Dear.  Ernest

19/5/1918      Ernest      Miss Fairclough   Blackpool   Salonique des Remparts Field Post office Addressed to 18 Bagot Street, South Shore, Blackpool; My dear E, Have just come in from the  Non-conformist Evening Service.  No C of E Chaplin has visited us while I have been here.  Yesterday I managed to get to some quite good sports.  Very hot this afternoon.  Will write a letter soon.  Absolutely nothing fresh.  Love E.

5/10/1918      Ernest      Emmie None  Salonique Rue Venizelos None  My dearest Emmie.  Just a card to let you know I am all right.  What is going to happen to us, I know not.  There is no sign of England yet.  In any case there is a tremendous lot to do.  Thie troops received the news of the surrender of Bulgaria with quiet joy.  There was no great excitement as one might have expected after the terrible fighting.  Last Monday we started on the march & pitched camp at a certain place expecting to be on the march for several days.  We stayed Tuesday in the same place & last Wednesday we marched part way back again & pitched bivouacs on the site of an old camp.  Of course there are plenty of sick troops about & we are carrying on a small hospital.  We have had a tremendous downfall of rain today & just managed to save ourselves from being flooded out.  The last letter I wrote you was on the 26th Sept, but am doubtful if you will receive it.  Postal arrangements are all upside down.  In that letter I acknowledged receiving several letters from you.  Hope to write you a letter soon.  All love, Ernest.

11/11/1918     Ernest      Miss Fairclough   Blackpool   Salonique - La Tour Blanche   Field Post office Addressed to 13 Bright Street, Blackpool:  My dear E, I have received several letters from you today which I should acknowledge in my next letter.

19/11/1918     Ernest      Miss Fairclough   Blackpool   Salonique Greek Soldiers None  13 Bright street:  My dear E, many thanks for 4 ripping letters received last Sunday which gave me great delight.  Have had another move today & expect to be at it again tomorrow.  I hope you have not sent Christmas parcel off.  Received splendid mail last Sunday.  I am at present in a most picturesque place.  It is far finer than Salonique to my mind.  Keep cheery and don’t lose your laugh.  That is what I want to hear.  Love Ernest.

20/1/1919      Ernest      Miss Fairclough   Blackpool   Taranto Via d’Aquino Army Post office  Italy.  My dear E, I expect to be home about the 30th, but can’t be certain.  Landed here this morning.  Very rough yesterday on the sea.  All love, Ernest.
