Perhaps he just happened to be in the area??

A lady friend or a posting??
One more charge and then be dumb,
            When the forts of Folly fall,
        May the victors when they come
            Find my body near the wall.

I've just been told that this branch of the Pattersons lived in Holmfirth from 1911 until the late 1930s when they moved to Huddersfield.  They came from  Great Yarmouth originally so perhaps the guy in KOYLI was from Norfolk.

Alternatively, despite what we've been told, he could stem from a female line in which case we've been looking for someone who doesn't exist  :-[
