John’s wife Jane gave birth to fourteen children in the first twenty five years of their marriage.  Ten of these offspring survived and are in the photograph above that was taken in 1892 at Lovington, Somerset, England shortly before John retired from farming.  It was the only time that all the siblings were together.

When Daphne, in 1970 wrote her essay about Arthur she did not know that Arthur and Catherine had eight, not six offspring.  The extra offspring came to light when researching their 1911 census return. It may have been a closely guarded secret that Arthur and Catherine were married at Hollymount Presbyterian church on 11 October 1881 (witnesses: James Cowan and Isabella Anderson) and their first set of un-identical twins Anderson and Jane were born on 27 May 1882, baptised 28 May 1882 and only lived a short time.
