Snippets: Home of Jane Austen
Delivered to H. W. Hooper at Old Rectory. Harpsden which had been the childhood home of Jane Austen (1775/1817). Her parents George Austen & Cassandra Leigh were wed in April 1764 and Cassandra's “going away” outfit was a scarlet riding habit. quite apt for a lady named Cassandra! Translated from Greek. Cassandra means ”she who entangles men”; according to Homer. Apollo. the Sun God. was in love with Princess Cassandra (daughter of King Priam & Queen Hecuba of Troy) but it was unrequited; this enraged Apollo so much that he placed a cursed upon her . Cassandra was a prophetess but because of Apollo's curse although her predictions were true no one ever believed her which in turn led to the downfall of Troy. Although a major name in the literally world Jane Austen only actually completed 6 novels. 2 of which. namely Northanger Abbey & Persuasion were published posthumously in 1818. Between 1953 & 1955 GTK55 was with Dr. McKeith in Norwich but just two years later she was with Aubrey Derwent Healing at Kingston Lodge. Lewes. Like his father. Oswald Judd Healing. Aubrey was a Chartered Surveyor & worked with his father for George Corderoy & Co of Westminster & in 1935 Aubrey became partner of the firm. his father had been made partner in 1919. Aubrey's daughter Anna-Louise married in 1991 to Sir Walter Scott (4th Bnt). who passed away the following year. Anna-Louise is an acknowledge judge of the British Connemara. Sir W. Scott's Great-grandfather. also named Walter. was a Civil Engineer & Publisher who not only published works by Yeats. Shaw & George Moore but had constructed the first “Tube “ underground railway in London. opened in 1890 by Albert. Prince of Wales. Walter was created a Baronet in 1907 and died in 1910 whilst on holiday at Hotel du Cap Martin in France.
