    Notes 
    • played and grew up with Charles Dickens


      ON 1871 census as Bible Woman

      on 1861 census Stepney


      In 1872 she left her loved native land and sailed for Australia. Charles Dickens had died two years before. Many of his books were on shelves in the new home.
      Their names are recorded in the registers in the Temple of the Lord Listed amongst the Latter Day Saints- Mormons that he honestly reported who at that particular time who were far from favourably spoken of.

      There is a story of a picture of a ship. It was in an Australian reading book - primer 2 and belonged to MHP in 1885-6. The grandma missed the sea an ships so much. Years later when MHP became possessor of the family bible there was the picture being used as a book mark, and now it is being placed - not as a brass tablet in a grand Cathedral but as a lasting memorial to a good woman, loved by all who knew her.

      One thing, when people leave their homes for a foreign unknown place they carry a few mementoes with them, memories of loved ones and places. Ann Phillis (Knight) Hougham took a photo of her parish church with her parents stone marked. This picture is 12 x 14 inches was framed and wherever she lived it was hung on her living room wall. It was taken from England to Australia, back to England and back to Australia, then to the USA and many times back and forth from Utah to California and like the names on the old tombstones fading with age - MHP
