Thank you all

I am glad you have replied Barryd - I had wondered if you were directly related.     My husband is the great grandson of Sir Edward Creasy.   Amazing really because I actually had a relationship with my great grandfather, but Sir Ed was born in 1812!    However, he was 47 when my husbands grandfather, Frank Roland was born in 1859.    And he was 43 when his son (my husband's father) was born.
We have always been fascinated with Ella George as we have a letter he wrote when he was  at boarding school.    He seems to have been a very sensitive lad.   
Sir Edward and his wife Mary were very caring in their role as parents and the children remained close when they were growing up.      However, they were sent to boarding schools and Frank Roland hated it and ran away when he was seven.   
We have the memoirs of Edith (Frank's wife) and she talks of the Creasy's being a loving, close family.

My goodness - thank you all so much.      I know now the best place to come to for information about the rellies.   

Ruskie - as you can see from other replies, Ella was a male.    I have wondered if the name has come from the area of Ceylon his parents moved to.    Nuevia Ellia.

avm228 - I really appreciated this information.

I am having a problem finding who Ella George Creasy (born 1863) married.    I know he committed suicide (17/9/1892) in Ceylon.     Family have always said that this was over a bad marriage and that he married an Edith Rose, a year before he died.     But can find nothing to substantiate this information re Edith Rose.
