Duisk Lodge; Girvan <1>
J. Fox Strangways –
1. Duisk Lodge was actually in Colmonell, a small village in South Ayrshire, Scotland, just in from the ocean - its postal service was through the nearest town, Girvan. It was reported to have been a hiding place for Robert Bruce.
2. Lady Elisabeth Theresa Feilding, née Fox Strangways, first m Talbot (1773–1846), WHFT’s mother.
3. Caroline Augusta Edgcumbe, née Feilding, Lady Mt Edgcumbe (1808–1881); WHFT’s half-sister.
4. Maybe George Strangways, a son of the Rev the Hon Charles Strangways. He is not mentioned in Burke’s, which would be the case if he died young, and this is possibly the reason why John Strangways wants a copy of his portrait.
