My Dear Frank and Bettie 

Many thanks for your letter and card at Xmas.   I am ashamed to see that it is
now March 6th, and I have been so long in writing but I sprained my right
wrist a few weeks ago and am only just beginning to use it. I am sorry to hear
about your son's wife losing her voice. Why don't you try Christian Science. I
have heard and read many wonderful healings brought about by it, having been 
healed myself of several and if Doctors cannot do any good to your son's wife 
it could do no harm to try this other. Would it. 



I am trying to raise $500. to go into a small private Hotel and tea room in 
Santa Cruz, it is a wonderful chance and I am wondering if you could possibly 
loan it to me? I can pay 10 percent interest, payable quarterly, as Harold
allows me more that enough to do that. Don't consider it unless you could spare
it for 2 (two) years and never mind if you can't do it dear. It is a chance I
don't want to miss as I am tired of working on a small salary for other people
and I have had so much experience in this line of work I know I can make a 
success of it.


Well dear please let me know by return if you can do this for me and please
excuse such bad writing but my wrist is still a little weak. 

 
God bless you all
 
Your loving Sister 

Violet

My Dear Frank , 

I have only today received the letter from Quentin, so I will try to catch the
post out.. 

It was I who sent you the "Message" and a letter at the same time .The letter
was returned to me about two weeks ago marked "not called for". I took it up
to Fanny.  We were both anxious about it knowing you were ill. Dear we are all
nearing the end of the road which in some ways has seemed, so short,
especially since /14.
 
You know I believe a very Very few years will see the fulfillment of the second
coming of Christ. We are today seeing the Prophecies being fulfilled before 
our eyes. Marvelous happenings taking place in the world and not many
understand it. I believe we shall all meet very soon. Do
 
you remember the little Mother, I have always so longed to see her.
 
I wonder if you have pansies and lavender with you? I picked these from our
garden today. We have a lovely garden but a very small house or rather 
cottage--quite enough in these days.  We had a ranch when we came out here. I 
loved it but we couldn't keep it.

Well Dear Frank God have you in his keeping. 

I hope this letter will not be returned. 'Au Revoir'

 With much love 
Your affec Sister Renee

Dear Quentin 

Thank you for writing to tell me about your dear father.
 
My last letter was returned--written about the end of April if I remember
rightly--but sent back 2 or 3 weeks ago.
 
I do hope your father is not suffering pain, can nothing be done to relieve
him. Are your brothers and sisters within reasonable distance to be able to
see him occasionally or are you the only one near at hand. I shall be very
glad if you will write to me sometimes and let me know how your father is.
Tell me everything you can think of about yourselves so that I may feel less
of a stranger.

Its nearly 11 o'clock and I must return to my work or I'll not get to bed
tonight.

My Dearest Frank 

I am afraid I have neglected you sinfully but really time slips along and day
after day passes and still I think "I have never written to Frank".  Even now 
I'm afraid I can't answer all your questions and no one seems to be able to
tell me.  However from a book Uncle Jarvis has written about our ancestors I
see that our Grandfather of Papa's side was Captain John Wilson R.N. and that
he died at Stoke, Devonport in 1842, but I don It know what of. Our Grandfather
on the Mother's side was also in the Navy and I believe he died of Yellow
Fever and Granny died of Dropsy about 26 years ago. I don't know anything of 
Papa's Mother; our Mother died when Violet was born Sep. 5, 1877. Daddy at
Fowey Oct. 16, 1889.  He was born at Stoke Devonport 28 Oct. 1834. Our Great
Grandfather was Sir Wm. Charles Fahie R.C.B. Commander of the Silician Order of
St. Ferdinand, and Vice Admiral of the Blue. Born 1763, died at Bermuda Jan.
2nd, 1833, aged 69. This is all the information I can give you dear, and I'm 
afraid it won't be much use to you.-- I think Mama was about 40 when she died .
 
I am staying now in Bascombe for a few days, with our old governess, whom I
daresay you may remember, Miss Phillips, she has a nice house here and is
living with a sister. I was near here fulfilling an engagement for a few weeks,
and came yesterday from there, they were very nice people and I hope at some
future time I may go to them again. When I leave here, am going on a visit to a
place called Moreton near Dorchester, probably for about a month to Mr.
Jehbrin's sister who...

My Dearest Frank
 
I was so sorry to get a letter from your youngest son Quentin, telling me how
very ill you are, of course I knew of your operation, as I had had a letter
from you sometime in the spring telling me about it and hoped you were on the
mend. I am awfully sorry Dear Frank, but you know we must expect these things
as we get on in life, although one puts off thinking we may have to leave our
dear ones, although it is only for a time you know. Renee had her afternoon
off' yesterday (she is assistant matron at an orphanage here) and so I went
round to see her, she also has had a letter from Quentin; by the way, it was
Renee who sent the pamphlet on British Israel and not me, she also wrote, but
her letter was returned for some reason or other, she said she addressed it
correctly. I hope Quentin will write me sometimes, I shall be so anxious for
news of you, or perhaps Betty would drop me a line. You see I am very much in
the dark as to how many you have left at home of your large family, I know
several are married .

I have not heard from Violet for ages. I will try to drop her a line, but as I
have only a post office address, she may never get the letter. I believe
Neville is in New Zealand, but I am not sure, Charlie never writes. I had a 
nice letter from Jack, he is at a place called Torrensville in Australia, most
of his children are married, he has two boys at home doing well. Jack himself
is not able to work much, he got an injury to his back many years ago and one
of his legs, but he says he feels pretty fit.


I am writing this at Rita's house, she and her husband have gone out, so Glen
and I are keeping house for her as she can't leave the baby, he is asleep
however and I hope will remain so. Rita's house has a beautiful view from the
windows, of the sea and mountains, it looks so pretty when the Bay is all lit
up on the opposite shore with hundreds of lights. Vancouver is 'well lighted
with big Neon Signs and certainly they look very pretty.
 
Glen is starting his two weeks holiday tomorrow, we are not going away this
summer, funds won't run to it, but we hope to go on one or two water trips, our
garden gets so neglected and dried up if we leave it for long. We have only a
small suburban garden, but it has looked a picture with flowers. Renee has a
lovely garden too. We do quite a bit of motoring, as Rita's husband has a car,
I am very nervous driving, although he is a good driver. Rita can drive too.
The baby is a dear little chap with a quantity of reddish curly hair, he is so
good tempered, unlike most red haired people.
 
Now I think I have come to the end of my talk. I sent a wire after getting
Quentin's letter. Now get him to write from time to time won't you. With much
love at you and Betty and thanks for Quentin's letter.
 
 
Always your affectionate Sister Fanny 




Charles Watson Wilson

Charles Watson Wilson

Charles was born in Stoke Devonport on December 28, 1834, the fourth son of John Wilson and Caroline Fahie. He graduated from the Wollwich Academy and entered the Royal Artillery in December 1853.

Charles married Henrietta Sankey on April 21, 1857 in Bath, Somersetshire. They had nine children, six boys and three girls. After the death of his wife, Charles reportedly had very little interest in the children, allowing Henrietta's family to take care of them.

He remarried and eventually rose to the rank of Major-General. He retired in 1885 and reportedly spent the final years of his life in seclusion in Dartmoor and Fowey, Cornwall, "corresponding through his solicitor so that his present wife cannot find his whereabouts."

Charles died on December 23, 1889 in Fowey.

Sir William Charles Fahie

William Charles Fahie was born in 1763, the son of John Davis Fahie of St. Christopher's W.I. He had a long and distinguished naval career, becoming Commander-in-Chief of the Leeward Islands on August 12, 1819 and in 1821 of the North American Station. He was made a Knight Commander of the Bath for his capture of the French ship, D'Hautepoule, when in command of the ship Pompee .

In, 1781, a small republican force from France made an attempt to get possession of Martinique; but having been repulsed by the Royalists, who were then predominant in the island, they went to St. Kitt's, where with the permission of the governor, they replenished their store of water and provisions to enable them to recross the Atlantic. During this operation several soldiers escaped from the transports, and professing themselves to be royalists at heart, were allowed to conceal themselves in different parts of the island till the ships had sailed. Among this number, a soldier of the name of Pierre found shelter on the premises of Mrs. Fahie, the mother of Lieutenant Fahie: he was himself absent at the time from the island, but returning soon after and landing at night, he was surprised the next morning to see a strapping fellow in the full decoration of the National uniform. His mother soon appeared and explained the circumstance, adding, that Pierre assured her that he was un bon royalist, and would die or his king and only solicited her present protection till he could find a passage to a neighbouring island, where he would work at his trade and await better times. But Lieutenant Fahie soon discovered that Pierre, though disgusted with the restraints and hardship he had recently undergone, was still in principle and feeling a rank republican and that his mother had been imposed upon: this he represented to her; but her humanity had been excited, and Pierre's renewed protestations of fidelity to his king secured to him a further continuance in his good quarters and of his good cheer. His intended removal to the neighbouring islands, in order to work at his trade and await better times, was postponed under various pretences from time to time, till hearing of the excesses committed in France, and foreseeing to what they would lead, Lieutenant Fahie said jokingly to his mother, "Madam, you are feeding that fellow here; we shall soon be at war with France, and he will one day have a shot at my head". Such an idea once awakened in Mrs. Fahie's mind, led to the immediate dismissal of Pierre. At the storming of Fort Louis, while Lieutenant Fahie was pushing on at the head of a party of the Zebra's crew, to dislodge a guard drawn up apparently to oppose him, he was surprised to hear himself loudly called by name, and to see at the same instant a soldier at his feet, begging protection from the British cutlasses that were brandishing around him; it was Pierre, who had been many hours that morning verifying his lieutenant Fahie's nearly forgotten prediction.

He married Elizabeth Renee Heyliger (d. 1817) and they had four daughters.

After his first wife's death, Sir William married Mary Ester Harvey (b.1806 Bermuda, d. Oct 4, 1856) on July 12, 1823 in Bermuda.

Rear Admiral resided in Bermuda for some years. He took as his second wife, Esther, daughter of Augustus William Harvey of Paget. Harvey was a Member of the Governor's Council. The Fahie's lived at Mt Pleasant, a Harvey house, in Paget. The Admiral's flagship Salisbury was a familiar sight in the harbour and should not under ordinary circumstances have attracted undue attention, but it is on record that one of the searchers for the Port of Hamilton, Mr Thomas Barr, had the flagship under special surveillance for some days. Packages of tea and other contraband commodities were making their way into the stores of Hamilton and Mr Barr thought that he saw unidentifiable missiles flying through the gunports of the flagship. When he had sufficient proof he sent in his report that contraband tea was issued from the gunports of H.M.S. Salisbury. Admiral Fahie was outraged, 'in fact he regarded the accusation as a personal insult though Mr Heseltine, the Comptroller, assured him that the officers of His Majesty's Customs had no intention of hurting his feelings, and the Collector himself wrote him a propitiatory letter which the Admiral refused to read. He would, he said, correspond only with the Governor. 'Mr Salton is at liberty to make any report he thinks proper', the Admiral remarked loftily to the Attorney-General. Mr Barr found himself with a £200 libel suit on his hands, as the result of his report. While the case was awaiting the next assizes, different opinions were voiced as to the legality of Barr's claim. Commander Briggs of the Dock Yard agreed that Mr. Barr's statement was all too true. The Naval Storekeeper at Ireland Island admitted that tea was sold cheaper in Hamilton than he could sell it at the Dockyard and someone found a list of articles from the Salisbury advertised in town. The list was headed by 'Tea, $2 per pound'. But the Assizes came and went and there was no case between Fahie and Barr. The explanation is found in a Customs statement which mentions that a hogshead of Madiera wine was landed from H.M.S. Orestes for Rear Admiral Fahie and was seized by Thomas Barr, Searcher. The Customs officers notified the Admiral that they would release his wine when he paid the duty! No more was heard of the Fahie-Barr libel case!

An Address

To Rear Admiral WILLIAM CHARLES FAHIE CB KSF Commander-in-Chief of His Majesty's Ships and Vessels, upon the North American Station SIR,- We, the Merchants of Hamilton and other Inhabitants of the Bermuda Islands, having learnt that you are about to be relieved from your present command, and to return to England, cannot allow you to depart without expressing our sense of the many courtesies we have received from you, since you hoisted your Flag upon this Station. Independently of that which duty enjoins, and which all the Officers in His Majesty's service must be supposed equally ready to perform, there are many ways by which a Naval Commanding Officer, always has it in his power to conciliate the good will, and promote the comfort of the Inhabitants of a Colony connected with his Station. In all these we bear willing testimony, Sir, to your having established claims on our gratitude.

During the protracted command which you have enjoyed as Naval Commander-in-Chief, we have witnessed a minuteness of attention, and spirit of accommodation, on your part, to the Merchantile, and other Interests of the Colony coming within the sphere of your protection; which, if equalled, have never been surpassed, on this or any other Station. We would advert in an especial manner to the degree in which you have consulted the convenience of the Public, (when the Rules of the service did not interfere,) by notifying them of any facilities afforded by the destination of Ships of War, for the transmission of Mails, and to the punctuality with which you have always imparted the earliest intelligence of their safe conveyance and arrival. By your attention to these particulars, accommodation has been afforded, not merely to the Merchants, but to the Community in general - which can only be duly appreciated in a Colony, which, like this, is not generally resorted to by His Majesty's Packets.

With equal pleasure, we beg to offer you our acknowledgements for the urbanity and politeness, which have marked your general intercourse with us; and we beg to assure you, that in retiring from your official situation, you carry with you the cordial regards of the Inhabitants of the Bermudas, attended with their sincerest wishes, that the more interesting relation in which you have been induced to place yourself with respect to them, may be productive of every happiness which this life can afford, both to yourself and your Lady. We may be permitted to add, that if the course of events, connected with duty or otherwise, should bring you again to our shores, we shall greet your return with the heartiest welcome.

Hamilton, June 20th, 1824

To which his Excellency, was pleased to make the following Reply

Salisbury, at Bermuda, July 2nd, 1824

GENTLEMEN,- I might have been at a loss for terms in which to express my thanks for the Address you have now presented to me, from the Merchants of Hamilton, and other inhabitants of the Bermudas, if I did not believe that those thanks would be most acceptable to them, when offered in the plain language which flows from the strong feelings of a sincere and upright mind; for I should be dead, Gentlemen, to the best impulses of the human heart, if I were not sensible, at the moment, of a proud gratification at receiving, from so numerous and respectable a body of fellow subjects, a testimony of their opinions, at once so honorable, to my public conduct, and my private character. It is the peculiar duty of the Commanders-in-Chief and other Officers of his Majesty's Fleets, to protect and promote the Maritime intercourse of His Majesty's subjects; and I rejoice to find that the anxious attention which I have given to this object, has been conducive to the particular interests of this Colony; and I sincerely hope the period is not distant, when it will be again viewed by the prosperities of Commerce, I am deeply sensible of your good wishes for the health and happiness of Mrs F AHIE and myself; and I beg to assure you that whatever changes of fortune or of place, I may be destined to experience, I shall ever feel firmly attached to this, His Majesty's loyal, and most ancient Colony. I have the honor to be, Gentlemen, your most obedient, humble Servant,

WILLIAM CHARLES FAHIE

Anthony was granted 200 acres of land in the French Quarter of St. Kitts between 1704 and 1718. He is recorded as owning 90 slaves. This estate still exists and was known as a large commercialized agricultural landholding with associated buildings and other facilities situated 17 degrees 23 minutes north and 62 degrees 50 minutes west on St. Kitts and Nevis. The name of Fahie was so well established that there is a place named after it north of Tortola. Anthony Fahie died sometime after 1718 in St. Kitts.

William Sankey

William Sankey was born on January 1, 1763 to John Sankey and Mary Simmonds.

"William, born in 1760, decided to be a doctor and was apprenticed to a surgeon, 'roughing it,' as we should say, for he slept under the counter in the surgery, where a doctor nowadays would not expect his dog to sleep. After his apprenticeship was over, he went to St Bartholomew's Hospital in London, where he fully qualified as a surgeon, returning to Kent as assistant to Mr. Richard BOTELER of Eythorne, eventually marrying the doctor's daughter Susanna and succeeding to the practice. He and the Curate of Eythorne used to play marbles together in a barn during the winter.

When Susannah died, leaving William (Sankey) with two sons, William and Henry and one daughter, Maria, he soon found a lady willing to become his second wife, Mary, daughter of Mr. John BOYS a gentleman farmer of Betteshanger, and by her he had eleven more children.

William was a very clever man, reading a great deal and making experiments in connection with medicine; e.g. he extracted the opium from poppies himself, that he might test the strength of it as compared with what he bought, the result being that adulteration was detected, the bought opium being much less strong that that which the doctor had extracted from the poppies grown in his own garden.

"He practised for many years at Eythorne and in 1803 removed to Wingham, near Canterbury, having been offered the practice of his first wife's brother-in-law, Mr. Wood. It was a good country practice, comprising not only Wingham but nine other little villages nearby. This position offered more possibilities of work and a better income, so he took it, partly for the sake of educating his family - the practice at Eythorne not being a very lucrative one. He took Mr. Wood's house, which had been built by a prosperous miller whose mill dam and fields adjoined. "Dr. Sankey" as the village called him, gradually improved the grounds, planting the waste ground in front of the house and making a pretty water garden on the bank of the Lesser Stour, which ran between his house and the miller's field. He drained the marsh at the back of the house, calling it 'Barataria' (of Don Quixote renown), saying that he was 'Sankey Panza.' He was a good botanist and very fond of his garden, often introducing new plants into it. He not only cared for his own garden, but he replaced trees in the village street when they died.

"In the early l9th Century, most of the medicines were made in the Doctor's surgery, the apprentice having to do the drudgery, such as stirring and boiling the mixtures; Mr. Sankey was very ingenious and contrived many things to lighten labour and to increase comfort, for instance, he had a shelf put on the surgery door, where infusions that needed shaking every day were placed - with the result that every time the door was opened, the infusion got the required shaking. Then, he contrived a map of the district and neighbourhood, mounted on a board with holes pierced at the country houses and villages; pegs were threaded on a string, and before he started on his rounds, he inverted these pegs into the places he was about to visit, thus marking his course so that a messenger could intercept him on his rounds if necessary. Labels with directions as to the amount of medicine to be taken and the number of doses to be given during the day, used always to be written, and this country doctor, Mr. Sankey, was probably the first to suggest to a druggist's traveller that printed labels would be a great convenience. We notice nowadays how many things which we need are 'made in Germany' or come from other countries, and if we inquire we shall find that this was the case in our grandfathers time also pill-boxes, for instance, were always imported from abroad and in war-time it was difficult to import them so Mrs. Boys, the doctor's mother-in-law, made him a bushel basket full of these necessaries out of old playingcards.

Dr. Sankey was somewhat eccentric as well as ingenious and many stories are told of his contrivances, e.g. his neck being short, and the fashionable collar being stiff and high, it came into contact with the brim of his hat, so he cut the brim off and pushed it up the crown so that he should not be inconvenienced by it. Umbrellas in his day were more costly and were sometimes stolen, so he had one made of alternate gores of green and blue, so as to be unlike any other. He wore wooden clogs when walking in the muddy country lanes and not liking to come in to his house with them when very dirty, he built a sort of little kennel for them, outside the surgery door.

"Medicines were very nasty then, so that syrup was added to make them taste nicer. Violet or red poppy syrup gave pretty colours and Orange or Peppermint syrup took away some of the disagreeable taste. One year he made Mulberry syrup, but that was so nice that everyone who went into the surgery asked to taste it and there was none left for the sick people.

"He had one plan which I have never seen elsewhere. The water-mill close to his house belonged to him and therefore the mill-pond and a strip of land on each side. He made one of the strips into a garden and then fenced in a little part of the pond, to keep the swans away, and planted many kínds of flowers in it. His son (Revd. Richard Sankey of' Witney) brought the curious arrowhead from Oxford, and the great white arums grew so well that they ripened seed as well as enlarging their roots.

"He was very clever in his profession. He found out how to cure a disease that had been considered incurable and he was so kind that he would take long drives to see patients who would never be rich enough to pay him. When he grew old, he drove Jack the mule in a little carriage called a sulky, instead of riding a horse as he used. Sometimes a little child sat at his feet on a stool. One hot day, they were jogging along the road. The little boy grew sleepy. The old man grew sleepy. Jack, finding that his master took no notice, went slower and slower until he, too, fell asleep! Until at last someone who came along the road found the carriage standing still, for the Doctor, the child and Jack were all fast asleep.

"Dr Sankey had a huge leather-bound book called Gerard's Herbal, which he took with him wherever he went, and used to call it 'My Good Wife.'

There is no portrait of his first wife, our ancestress Susannah Boteler, but there is a silhouette in a frame which contains several others including a full-length one of Dr William. There is a miniature of him and one of his second wife, Mary Boys, wearing a widow's cap. Mary writes:-

"'He lived for thirty years in Wingham, much loved and respected by both high and low' and was able to continue his work amongst them till a very short time before his death on Christmas Day 1833. His widow went to live in St George's Place, Canterbury, Ieaving her son Frederick as doctor in his father's place at Wingham. She died in 1864 aged 86 and was buried beside her husband in Wingham Churchyard."

John Sankey

John Sankey was born in 1731 in Kent England to Samuel Sankey and Elizabeth Fukes.

John, born 1731, became a farmer like his father, and settled at East Langdon near Dover, where he married firstly Mary Simmonds, and secondly Jane Rattray, daughter of the Vicar of E.Langdon. John Sankey is said to have introduced the then new plant of laburnum into the village, where no doubt it was much admired.

"In those days farmers did not indulge in many luxuries, such as carpets, but Sankey of East Langdon had one in his parlour, and some of his friends thought this too grand a notion and refused to come and see him in his home! He and his two wives were buried in the churchyard which adjoins the farm, and many of his descendants have been buried there since, in his vault and near it."

He and she were working in the field one day, and saw in the ditch a portmanteau, which they took home. No one enquired for it and the farmer and his wife decided that someone in those troublous times, when fleeing for his life, had dropped it. What were the contents or the portmanteau was never divulged, but John Sankey soon became a very well-to-do farmer, and set up his five sons in other parts of East Kent:-
1. John at Hastingleigh.
2. Thomas at Stowting Court.
3. Edward at Milton Chapel.
4. Samuel at Monks Horton

On the Foreign Stations

(3) William Baillie ; born at Barrow in Furness in 1864, He went from Richmond College to Jamaica in 1887 and spent his active ministry of 39 years in the Jamaica District, retiring in 1926. He was one of those ideal missionaries who adopt the land of their appointment. He married a Jamaican lady who greatly helped him throughout his ministry. He is remembered for his strong and efficient pulpit ministry; his missionary advocacy, his devotional addresses at Synod and for his gift in prayer. By temperament he was shy, retiring and sensitive. He could never trust himself to repeat the Lord's prayer from memory, but when he began to speak there was no trace of feebleness or self-consciousness. His addresses were clothed in choice language and passionate in conviction and appeal. Beyond the regular work of the Ministry he had wide and varied interests. He was an expert photographer and a great reader. Solely in the interests of the people he managed a book store and a printing works, and employed colporteurs in the endeavour to distribute good literature. For many years he was a representative of the British and Foreign Bible Society. In the later years of his life, his motto was 'A Bible in every home'. He loved the people and ministered to their physical ailments. He loved his brethren in the Ministry & was always happy to share their fellowship, especially after his retirement. After a period of much weakness and suffering, this friend and brother departed to be with Christ on the 2nd September 1948, in the eighty-fourth year of his earthly life.
