John Alexander Adamthwaite and Leeanna’s children were:
Lucy Vipond Adamthwaite born on 15 July 1886 at Stockwell Green, Surrey. Lucy married Percy H Mawson in March 1812 and when they were first married they lived in Finchley. Lucy reported the death of her father in 1912 and some time after this the family moved to Royston in Hertfordshire.

John Alexander died in 1912; Leeanna then became housekeeper to the Reverend Jones at Abington Piggots a village in Hertfordshire (photo below right shows the Rectory). She had quite a large staff of maids under her watchful eye. My mother told me how, when she lived with her Grandma after the First World War, the maids used to take her with them to light the upstairs lamps, they were afraid of the dark (she was 5 at the time!) Grandma was well known in the village she was the first person to own a tricycle, very racy!! Click here to read Leeanna's recipe for 'Lamb Rechaufee'
