I am new to this site and finding it a bit confusing. My message is about Knowle House Frant. I recommend The Girl from Station X by Elisa Seagrave. It is about her mother's life and covers something of the story of Raymond Hamilton-Grace who died in 1918 aged 3.

Thank you Sporadic! That relates to my thread 'Knowle House, Frant' on the Kent message board where I was investigating a friend's family history. I've pointed the moderator in that direction. Does the book mention the young Elsie?

Not by name but it certainly gives a picture of the family and household around that time. I was reading the book, googled Frant to find out where it was and your post came up, which lead me to registering with Rootschat. I have been sporadically researching my family history and was interested to discover this site.

I think Elsie is mentioned in Elisa Segrave's book...I remember stumbling over the Elsie, Elise, Elisa similarity. You probably have found it by now given the time lapse, but I will let you know the page if I find it again. Elisa seems to have a stash of diaries from her mother, Anne. Not all entries are in the Girl from Station X, I feel. She may also have notes from her grandmother, Gladys Hamilton Grace, who would have probably hired Elsie. Have you tried "The Lady?" An eminent source for 'help' back then too, or Debretts - there's a contact in the acknowledgements. Elisa Segrave I'm sure can be contacted through her website or publisher. She is often at the Annual Bletchley Veteran's Day event in September. Good Luck! PS: Bletchley is well worth a visit.
