I found this biography of her eldest brother amongst the papers of my grandmother Lucy Wates. It is a draft and unfortunately only covers his childhood. She had made some alterations, in particular changing the references to herself from the third person to the first person but not consistently. Except in a few cases I have transcribed the draft as she wrote it and have not attempted to edit it
It contains very interesting information about her own childhood and family life.
