his income which was £30,000 pounds per annum. He married an equally proud

Extract from letter to a SJ from her
cousin Lizzy Arbuthnot née Ball
The story of your mother as I used to
hear it is as follows.
When quite young she was engaged to a
Capt. Nicholson at Grahamstown,
on Sir Harry Smith's staff, and had to stay on at Mrs. Hockley's school,
where her sisters were, as parlour boarders to complete her education.
Then he went to India -- a Mr. Blaine was
desperately in love with her, but had to fight between his love and his
snobbery. He used to offer to post her letters and used to abstract those
that came for her from India, so neither of the lovers heard from each other,
[?] she did [?]. After a time our grandparents came to Cape Town and had a lovely house at Newlands where granny took a few Indian people as borders when they were at The Cape for health.
Your father arrived in command of a fine ship but very ill with dysentery,
and had to be left at the hotel too ill to go on. Uncle S. (Sedgewick) met him at the hotel and chummed and when your father was fit to move brought
him to Newlands and both stayed with granny and fell in love. It was arranged
the sisters should be married the same as
Aunt Sedgewick’s 17th birthday 31st of May and your father and mother sailing as passengers
with uncle Sedgewick so the two sister brides were together.
On the way they fell in with a derelict,
and your father said he could navigate her to the port if he had crew and Uncle
Sedgewick gave him one. He took the ship to Ireland and was much feted by
owners and got a large sum of money as salvage which of course had to be
shared with Uncle Sedgewick’s owners.
Your father, Uncle Sedgewick, my father
were all midshipman in the old East Indies Company service until it was
abandoned. Each had a pension of £11 a year, which the company converted for
a lump sum, they did away with all pensions under £100 a year. My father then
entered the mail services and finding was chief officer in the P.O. fleet, but
a family connection being a large ship owner in Waterford (Nicholson of
Portland) offered him command for his ship the Currogham and he was tempted
and foolishly chucked his good billet. Uncle Dare and Sedgewick also got
command of first class ships. Mr. Blaine had been playing fast and loose
letter with your mother, and [?] her against
Capt. Nicholson and one night he was dining at a [?]
[?] someone said “Why Blaine look here
this is surely your love”. He read out the notice of the marriage of your
mother. Mr. Blaine fainted and soon after wrote to her a confession and sent
all the letters he had got hold of. Lady Smith took them to India and asked
for your mother’s back. He said no, she has been faithless to me, but I never
will be to her. I believe he was the same man whom she met going back to the
Cape after taking Aunt Lydia home and got engaged to, but his brother
persuaded him she was too old and had too many children and it was broken off
this was about 1869. You very nearly had a rich stepfather, he is dead now.
She had a beautiful oil painting of Capt. Nicholson but in your father's last
illness he got peevish a fraction and persuaded her to burn it. When you were
all at B. Terrace upper Clapton when he died. I remember the news of his death, and you all
arriving in the Wanata & the baby brother being born dead & then you all went to Singapore
in that awful ship Elizabeth Martin,
when the crew mutinied and put the captain in irons. You had a cross
English nurse called Carolyn and she
brought the men to reason.
I am [heard?] seen your mother was
married at Rhondabush, our grandparents and many of the family are buried at
Rhondabush. Did you ever hear your mother had such a gentle nature, her name
in her family was “Sarah the peacemaker”.
