I have given an account of this on my very full web sites – records : )
1940s - talking point of interest and pride to Roman Catholics and Converts is the NORD–SUD POLES TOUR 1935-1936 – the 8 months wonder that their great-niece, grandchild of their sister Mary Helena, Greetah tells them of : moral couplets are sometimes spoken by Annie-artist from her readings in The Ingoldsby Legends ...

READER will like to know, be reminded, that `people you know` in these cities, small towns, villages of England are surprising in their connections to the globe – here we are in a world of Irish Roman Catholics, French Catholics, Quakers, Nonconformists, Methodists, who know their families foreign relatives & ancestors back to Roman Britain & forwards – there are Refugees (well heeled) coming from Europe like the Huguenots at the Revoking of Edict of Nantes 1683 when they 40,000 in indignation came into East Anglia & Thames with skills paper-making, weaving, much craft work and farming –
( NB: 1968 Andre Malraux who met Teresa Elizabeth Gordon December 1924 Deauville & with young friends helped she and friend Miss Plunket Greene to PARIS – the 2 girls had been robbed CALAIS by Jimmie JONG – he had robbed a Warehouse of money – tried get them into trouble – but Teresa a fine horsewoman when a child got to PARIS with a bunch of young people including Malraux back from ASIA – The girls had the import ant days of ChristmasTide at The British Embassy Paris : Here CLACTON-on-Sea 1945 and into the years to his early death 1976 he is still acting my Guardian of 1937 – this worldwide important Role granted him by world, several Religions, civilized little Nations, is surprised in an English village butchers to be greeted in the French of a village where he has friends around - `Our countryman Andre – we read all your books – and visit 2 yearly our relatives – we share a grandfather 4 and 5 generations back – (we come back with a 2 week hangover – that wine !) they had come into East Anglia (where they knew the blood line of his mother she established 9th century AD Histon) – many branches, some known to my great-aunts Bessie and Annie & the Seas Edges 1940s when he a Widower with 2 dead brothers too comes for healing – singing in the great R.C. Church of our Lady 1945 spring onwards – it is my two great Aunts of the tall house `Stella Maris` 10 Granville Road who help steady him in his despair & grief = Singing the MASS 1610 Monteverdi had him go forward – it HIT Flower Power London in the 1960s lifting up the Heavens with its hope and joy : www.greta-ransom.com `1937 SUMMER etc` came from Wars of Spain 1937 to Clacton – his mother has this blood line HISTON back to 9th century AD Norfolk-Suffolk – she and her family would visit Saxmundenham Hall late 19th century – letters, inherited moneys, into the 1930s : )
Born 1933, to me as a small child the world was round and I knew my ancestors & their descendants of 14 Races and 27 Nations all marrying into us Ransom down the centuries because our work is the seas the SEAS EDGES ...Knowing `your people` was not at all unusual if you lived at the Seas Edges. And the families of my Southern Irish great grandmother Classicist include Murphy shipping, Carroll & O`Brien all with Sea connections down the centuries & some are welcome and asked to push open a door into the Vatican & a cousin or two live in there ... The big world to us is also a small world where people Act the Gospels Out in whatever Religion is wholesome ...
I have no Racism being 14 Races 27 Nations and they all send me Xmas and birthday presents – at my birth a nice Arab King sent Incense and Myrrh – no gold because he knows Tiggy and Aunt Margareth for decades and she has more gold than him – but he supports the real HOMES that Tiggy established – his own kept quietly where an Empire might object : )
1943-1944 CLACTON-on-Sea : those who have not gone `evacuation from the seashores of England` ... very aware of the WAR a few miles across the Channel would quietly, seriously be walking about the little town, to the one Greengrocer opposite the Chemist Marine Parade, Co-op & International, Chemists, Post Office, basket or bag, greetings & exchanges spoken quietly about the morning newspapers news, perhaps serious matters the past week – reminders to pop in the Cinema and see the Pathe News for this or that – and the Odeon, the Century, `the old little Kinema have a good film on` : But again comes SCOTLAND WITCHCRAFT – CRASH! Just as it drifted about on the Sea front 1910-1930s, lingering in big houses even into the early 1940s :
The town was advised by the dainty but energetic great Aunts of `young Greetah` daughter of `young Fred` to MAKE THE SIGN OF THE CROSS IN THE AIR – pick up anything and make a cross – carry a cross in your shopping bag – display it at unfortunate Teresa when she comes at you treating you like SERFS, slaves of the British Empire – she has been with THEM again !
1943 Spring - Annie says she “ Teresa our niece” sounds like a Banshee again – “ ... its after she has been up in London and about the Shires with THEM – some of them that came down to our seafront before this War began – remember if we saw them when taking a stroll I would take your hand and say `we take the low road` ... if they were on our beaches then `we take the high road` : And I am used to Annie Artist quoting a couplet or verse from THE INGOLDSBY LEGENDS – sometimes Bessie cautions her `not in front of the children Annie` : Great Aunt Annie goes on to explain, 1943 after I have said the noises our mother makes in the Rec when it is night time ` there are Banshees in Scotland and Banshees in Ireland too – but it is real people gone MAD – So you should ignore them & our niece when they say they have a ghoul telling them what to set about & go to the neighbours & tell them - the ghoul comes out of a bottle – we know this in Ireland ...
So I say THEY HAVE ALL BEEN AT THE BOTTLE again ... ”
Annie Carroll Williams since 17 years old has been training in the Arts & Crafts World – Liverpool ... Liverpool has the ART SHEDS where her friend Ruth Bare artist is ... Ruth comes visiting to `Stella Maris` 1945 – these young women had got free of embroidery & Victorian clothes not at all suitable for modern life`1890s-1900s (All this ARTS & CRAFTS histories of British Art Movement can be found on internet)
I am next year engaged R.C. Church & Vatican and allowed `walking out`with the Widower my Guardian since 1937 October – his mother has an ancestral line everyone knows of 8th-9th centuries AD Family HISTON – first recorded Histon River Norfolk, then the `Thorpes` the seas edges (sadly now much coastal erosion since 13th century) descending to Kings Lynn & 19th century Saxmundenham Hall Suffolk : 1947 February after Permission granted my Guardian 1933 the Vatican to make Early Marriage to my Guardian of October 1937, Annie Agnes Artist went around `Stella Maris` singing Irish songs in her pretty lilting voice “ ... so you want to get married but your much too young ... and others ... : The St Clare`s Convent Nuns were overjoyed – the groom is allowed sing in their private Chapel with the Priest – Mrs Taylor Choir Mistress had been saying “ Choir - that young fellah Andre Malraux is not taking the robe – with that voice he is taking the veil – but now Greetah has grown tall so tall I think we can call them Romeo and Juliet ... Hhhmm ...” ( He learned to sing 1920s in Paris from lessons Alfred Deller as many young men did ... )
(Of course with a Wartime genocide happened to many of the Thomas Grote Homes around the globe it is necessary that heir and co-heir and he Guardian are quietly put into place – we were all deceived from 16th April 1947 & never got to meetings that summer in Rome, New York and Peru – so many good civilized citizens the world were insulted by cunning drug-and-bottle ill-bred aristocrats wearing big boots at Westminster by Moonlight : All work assembled links this history of 2,000 years & destruction for money & weird ignorant hedonism www.greta-ransom.com & other sites :)
A long tragic trail can be travelled by the initial assembled Records `a scaffolding` Document in 3 Parts called “ 1937 SUMMER Andre Malraux, Josette Clotis, Greta Ransom, Clacton-on-Sea and WEST GREENLAND –
Also RANSOM Ancestries, histories in 4 parts – part 5 is in need of editing ... This great SAIL continues, down the centuries from B.C. Udewalla Jutland Mediterranean A.D. Londonium, EAST ANGLIA, to the present day :
1930s into the 2nd World War ...
“ SHE WAS MAD AND SHE WAS POWERFUL , and so were THEY her noble aristocrat FRIENDS-FIENDS ...”
“ And 1940s BRITAIN in another WAR - its EMPIRE showed gallantry, and with some gusto or slow acceptance, even reluctance, agreed that `a statement must be made` : But they were all in THEIR GRASP – these hedonists – many got out over Hadrian`s Wall from Scotland – got to WESTMINSTER by MOONLIGHT ... it stretched into Scandinavia through blood lines ... with plans made to hold on to the money ... ”
New READER needs good background to these times – a useful book 2,000 AD is Piers Brendon `DARK VALLEY` & it is helpful if there is a memory of old people talking to us about The Great War in which they had taken part – the beach men who fought 1st World War who looked after the Chalets at Holland-on-Sea are speaking 1937 to young author helper in the Spanish Civil War ANDRE MALRAUX – they know all my families and I am used to hearing the histories of people around – Mr Shoeman great singer our Roman Catholic Church ... when we visit the Cemetery afternoons to take flowers and pay homage at teatime especially in Winter ...these people had also experienced the sinking of the TITANIC & we children born 1920s, 1930s, heard live encounters of this :
1942, 1943-1944 REPORTS, letters, oral : “ ... your great-Aunts Bessie and Annie showed how to take away her power – have the town see – Aunt Annie was shopping in Boots the Chemists and as she tried to leave her niece Teresa came at her like a Minotaur foaming at the jaws with upper class jargon – but demure Annie artist grabbed an umbrella and a role of newspaper and made a cross and advanced at her – she urged the shoppers to make the Sign of the Cross in the Air ... Teresa muttered and left the shop putting her head down as she turned into the street :
Your Aunt Bessie Martha met Teresa as she came from the Post Office in the High Street – Bessie made the sign of the Cross in the air and then may have pulled from her handbag her big black old Irish carved Cross ... Teresa finished her mouthful but had to leave – then remembered she needed to do some business in the Post Office – became haughty but otherwise calmed down ... Now the town made the sign of a Cross in the air or crossed themselves when they saw your mother ... after a few weeks it worked ... but there were still outbreaks ...`
2016 AD – IDEA ? : I wonder if perhaps CLACTON should recreate an old INN called `at the SIGN of the CROSS` for the Tourists – perhaps cocktails and beers of the two Wars could be sold – memoirs & DVDs ...
? It might be sited towards JAYWICK where the 18th century Smugglers ran their brandy-laces-letters from a spy into the Wash Lane area : Or towards CLACTUNA which is recorded in Little Doomsday Book ...
READER might care to be reminded I am 9-10 into 11 years 1943-1944 – but it is known about the town I am the much travelled heir GROTE HOMES & RANSOM worldwide Estate and Len my young Uncle FLYER-Musician-artist co-heir – therefore it is most necessary I be quietly firmly with COURTESY warned of the unholy state that Teresa Gordon Mrs R. is in again = she with young Fred FJR her husband in the Army, promoted to Captain 1943, has to be managed ! Railway observe her – Ah she has been on her days off from Prison attending back of big buildings London Parties, Whitehall, one on an Aircraft carrier Portsmouth : these are childhood & youthful friends of the 1920s and many have a firm upper Class ill-educated mindset – they all want to be Governor General to pieces of the British Empire : Readers who have this work on DVD earlier have had time to thoughtfully consider & re-consider 19th & the 20th century histories ...
HIGH SOCIETY & MEDICAL MATTERS : some EXPLANATION :
Mary Helena Gordon sister of Miss Bessie Martha Williams & Miss Annie-artist Williams has her troublesome daughter b 1906 Teresa Gordon Mrs R. descend upon the town, again treating us all as serfs – as that `Jurassic Mafia` 1920s-1930s close to The Royal Hotel : From January 1942 Mary Gordon has been taking care of her three grandchildren not in `Crail` Skelmersdale with a wall painted as a country scene by George her husband – ( it made `Crail` like a half mile long I used to feel ) – Teresa managed another prison stay Worcestershire 26th December 1941 – 2 years sentence then transfer to a good Clinic until her husband returns from the War
(historical note early 20th century the Victorian Loonie Bins are also called Nut houses, and Cranki Houses – learned 1st World War German hospitals- Krankenhaus, & also `Bats in the Belfry Clinics ... )
But Teresa`s Big Boots aristocrat chums have her released after a year – getting her many releases of 12 days at a time that year : She has spent Christmastide 1942-1943 at Cliveden (Clifton-on-high Seas !) home of the Astor family ( they away Wartime in Australia) with mixed Top Brass of several nations on the British Wartime side – French, Poles, USA, Dutch too ... Food was magnificent we hear – flown in by the Yanks ! ( Bet the French & Russians contributed from their old game of swopping liquors just beyond the Shetlands helped out here – Seamen do not fight a war without some good liquor it was known about the 7 seas ) :
Mad Mother Kali/Clytemnestra is part of a `Roaring 20s` young set & had ridden in private horse races since her early teens often winning – liner jaunts USA and Asia were taken : Now they are looking old – but like most of them she has never given up `dope` & the bottle - but she only takes Brandy throughout the meal :
( ... it is known that drugs at an early age twist the mind into greed, self importance & nasty habits : An American in-law will say after living in Kenya 1930s “ heroin makes a Saint Sin deearh – Americans only take a pinch of cocaine – in Kenya heroin was cheaper than sand ... over here end orve tha 20s they`d keep on the go for 4 days then fall down – after another 4 days their servants chipped `em out orve Rigor Mortis ... I did not think that fun ... ” )
This world that my families keep away from is a problem since the late 19th century - it makes a lot of `dough` or `brass` for British Aristocracy of the wrong sort – the City of London tried keep out TEA and OPIUM noble traders = problems go into the 1960s & continue to-day we see from daily & weekly news : (Dope taken early fixes the young mind – Teresa & her chums of the big places are a showcase ) :
Clacton town has beaches closed winter 1939-1940 to 1944 – a good broad road on the cliffs above has the residents still able to sit in The Gardens between the designer houses the Holland end, walk a dog & rest on big slatted seats & read, produce a knitting-bag, work at embroidery, talk – these are sturdy wood seats for 3 or 4 persons having comfortable back rest and arms for the old or invalided to grasp while rising – 1900s onwards no expense was spared to make this seafront a safe place with sunken Rose Gardens from Pier towards Jaywick, and terracing with hardy shrubs and small trees from Holland to Jaywick end = I grow a tough purple Hebe from cuttings first taken on these terraced cliffs 1950s – the Town council employs Trained Gardeners & they have a wide knowledge of the work, the rare bushes and trees & give advice to townsfolk for their gardens – Interesting trees include the 3 Monkey Puzzle trees unique when discovered on Norfolk Island 18th century = Various Botanical Society members came to worship them – reverently removing caps and trilby hats it was said – and perhaps holding a Nature Service or lecture by the Leader of the Group ... :

My co-& sub-heir LEN Immanuel RANSOM refused flying RAF was posted to Blackburn with his young wife (a former distant cousin Miss Weddell Argentina) & their nearly 2 years old son Rudolph Weddell Ransom to die age 12 years : ( see `House of the Lavender Pearl Windows` 1935-36 ) Lennie `my best friend` when we are flying about the world 1933-1939, could not leave his work as Jim JONG a spoof Major kept an eye on him for the noble mad & powerful – he sent a RAF friend with messages to Granny 1942 spring – Lennie & young family helped the owner of a small factory ex-Grammar school, good Latin & history, & he luckily understood PIMPS & had seen JIM Jong at Races 1930s ...

1939 October – spring 1946 - Clacton-on-Sea : The long Railway workers house Walton Road built c 1870s – Mary Gordon widow since March 1937 was made very ill, in a coma, a Nurse got from London October 1939 after 3 of her grown children had gone to War – Teresa & Jimmie Jong (a self appointed Army Major 1939- a childhood aquaintance of GRAND `Mafia` on the seafront since 1910-11) is moved here from `Crail` Skelmersdale Road by “that bit of vermin” Jimmie Jong & daughter Teresa known him since she 9-10 years old (he is the child b 1898 Port Arthur to an RN & low post Diplomat marriage to a Swiss-Paris educated rich young woman of a very good Chinese Family = they had to keep him at arms length after age 15 his crimes were out of control – 2 years training in The Chinese Opera had him with most excellent marks for EVIL PARTS ... He is on our backs until his death 1981/2 “in a London Nursing Home called `The Angel & Crack`” (I think perhaps the Clinic has a PUB next door called `The Angel & Crack` ? The modern speech had become very different from my early QUAKER –
I G.R. went to school at 1 year & 4 months 1934 (rests mid morning & afternoon in my pram & looked after by 2 girls whose parents sang at the Rutland Boughton Poor Man`s Opera Glastonbury as it was called – great singers came for free including Paul Robson) ... Our teacher was 80 but as bright as a 30 years old – the school was across the road from The Labour Club & the Greek architecture miniature Masonic Society building, the tiny roundabout and the Milking Cow brought mornings or evenings where we filled jugs for the older citizens = The teaching was terrific about world history & I sat in the front row until my rest times : It closed when I was 2 and three quarters heading for 3 years – but I can see the small delicate teacher her grey hair and plain pure woolen clothes ... I had traces of this Quaker speech until 20 years of age & working in Colchester Museums 1950s, & they Curators were very proud of the remains of my ancient speech of the 17th century Essex & Suffolk : I have described it in `scaffolding` Document in 3 Parts `1937 SUMMER etc. ` & teaching it to Andre Malraux & Josette that Summer 1937 – 1957 he could throw phrases at me and insist I Curtsey to him again ... :
1939 October : MOVING GRANNY Mary Gordon in a coma : family photo albums, letters, clothes, paintings by GEG my grandpa were burned in the little `Crail` front garden & Aunt Winnie`s cat Sooty poisoned – the old part time gardener for the area was called to take away a dead cat – he will give accurate and tearful accounts of those days : “ young Fred Ransom called away to help with Army recruiting – Harry Gordon gone to make planes then 6 weeks later moved to transport to get anything on the roads – even first world war cars got off old farmers – Harry telephoned and said working 17 hour days ! Miss Winnie Mary had to join the ATS & disappeared up to Manchester to all the Butler relatives – I did not know how to make contact at first – young Esther Mrs Potter married to the son of old Mr Potter the lifeboat went to Woking to their relatives – Mr Potter Lifeboat and wife running Clacton newspaper and on duty night and day with the Lifeboat – we all came out of retirement to help with anything – strong tea kept us going ...
“ That Christmas 1941 the town heard rumours that Mary Gordon would be having to take care of her children as her difficult daughter had gone mad again ... she and the three children lived in the Walton road house from January 1942 ... she said not to worry anyone as we had a War on again ... ... ... ”
1942 January : So we three, me Greta (Greetah) 8, John 6, Colin 3 & a half years, arrive from Bulford Salisbury Plains by train January 1942 – we have WVS ladies & a Policeman outside the railway carriage for the long journey to Clacton made in 2 perhaps 3 parts changing trains - & arrive early evening having left Andover at 9 am - met by Granny Mary Gordon with a Taxi to Walton Road, our lovely `Pearly` house around the corner to the REC at 112 Vista Road is to remain closed orders Teresa & her noble chums who will sometimes cook themselves big hearty meals there : We are to have some protection from Church and townsfolk - It was considered a serious matter by some in The Whitehall War Office London that my father had been sent to The Philippines and that he woke up on a plane halfway there – He was HOME DUTIES !
He is trained in Stores an expert because during his Army years he had permission and help from some British Army persons to run the great worldwide family Estate GROTE HOMES educating children to 18-20s and the attached RANSOM estate begun many centuries ... which was able from shipping & transport to fund much philanthropy especially medicine-farming-sciences-arts-safety standards in technology-mining fishing & schooling, sports facilities, retirement homes for our workers – standards examined by others who tried do similar improvements for the green earth the blue seas and human beings all shades of skin : since the murder of Aunt Mag`s husband USA citizen Tiggy Grote 1904 Arran Island W.H., Now the Estate was forced to keep a low profile as certain powerful Scot Earls & Lords vowed to demolish worldwide education as it would interfere with their PROFIT – some employed 2 year olds in factories India & Asia : But quietly 1920s the British Army used parts of the Estate occasionally as a training ground for the soldiers & this taught them skills of administration as well as good relationships with other nations – but it had to be kept in mind that these certain British Earls & Lords did not approve education for the masses – it would interfere with cheap labour Britain and worldwide they muttered – they infested Clacton-on-Sea seafront, town and villages ...
... British Police had a strong name for them & would give warnings that the Police Scotland or London or Norfolk had telephoned to say “ THEY have got the Bailiffs in again – heading your way – watch all small shops with one person in & warn Pubs they only serve for cash ! And there were other warnings – I still wonder what they did, Mr Jong too, with that chunk of butter in August – it must have weighed 200 pounds (you can put that into grammes if you must) – perhaps they thought at 1 am in the morning it was cheese – but they got plenty of liquor and fags on these old Scotland forays :
1942 January through the year Teresa Gordon Mrs Ransom is given too many `releases` that year when she only served one year of the two year sentence & was not transferred to the good Mental Hospital to await the return of her Army husband 1943 promoted to Captain : She should NOT have had these frequent Releases for she was with her 1920s chums MAD and POWERFUL and we were all in her GRASP ...
Her important London friends arranged this with the Prison Worcestershire : JIM Jong well known to Clacton residents 1920s-1930s staying at the GRAND now and then each Season, is now a Major back of Buckingham Palace, strict entry the back doors, with a 2 man Unit called `Intelligence`- all information comes first to them to sift : She was released every 6 weeks for 12 days – she would roll back in the dawn from London parties of the fashionable – then midday go to the Royal Hotel best bar or there would be lifts to Harwich – she was supposed to check in with the Police every morning – they did their very best in such difficult matters – My young father always said to them “ only do your duty – think of your family your house and your retirement Pension ... these things may change one day ...

Great POUL is a polymath-genius & Trader & Catechist : he is Chinese ancestry beyond Quingdao ( his Scholar ancestor arrived Greenland to live & is buried there 1601) His highly educated Eskimo part French young mother 2nd wife to his father ( NB: POUL has 2 brothers eventually with family USA) (my Granny 5 times back `little soft white snow paws-Maria`) teaches him to look at seas life, sand-rocks-minerals-birds & animals & people & learn many languages – she has visited Venice as a Child & heard the wondrous singing = she tells her only child 1720s `we will go to the STARS – they are worlds like this – there will be invented ships that sail in the air and will take us – She is reading a book 1st translation into French of LUCRETIUS `De rerum natura`his life`s work ... :
Great POUL GRONLANDER exchanges Letters with the VATICAN Rome the HUMANIST POPE BENEDICT mid-18th century – the Pope sent him a horse, botanical fruits, nuts, spices he asked for – they both believed in `the Botanical` medicine : One letter from him says `come quickly – we must talk – I am going mad here...` (This is in Latin of course ! ... other translations may dispute phrase `I AM GOING MAD HERE – but read his history first ) ...

Great Aunt Annie-artist also reads a passage of LUCRETIUS with a passage of the Bible every night – 1907 her sculpture professor MANZONI recommended she do this keeping Lucretius alongside her bible – she did until the end of her life 1970s ...

I was not born until 1933 ! She told this to Master Dave Lindsay 1938 & he to me – he was sad to have missed it – being 3-4 years old !!
The families have to make allowances for Annie-artist born 1880, with her boundless energy and enthusiasm (same as older sister Bessie Martha) - for Annie began training as a marble worker & produced marvelous holy statues – she joined age 17 the Roman Catholic Professor Manzoni his Granville Marble Works Liverpool – later she and he went to help Harold Rathbone at his Della Robbia Pottery because `Uncle Harold` “ ... he could not do portrait likenesses or manage the financial matters ... ” :

PART II – 2nd WORLD WAR - CLACTON-on-Sea :
Witches & Ghouls out of Scotland = Southern Ireland it is to be found had not got so many Witches at toil and trouble around the Pot - the poetry & music, literature bring sanity : good schools and teachers of world travel contribute : “ Beware the bottle ” is understood by the Arts & Crafts young persons in Liverpool and Manchester 1870s onwards ... These records are a journey by roads & lanes in a TRAGEDY forged in late 19th century Scotland Earls greed from 1883 ... THEY ARE MAD and POWERFUL and BRITAIN and its EMPIRE were in their grasp :
I would make the Sign of the Cross to my mother, discretely if she advanced on me in the town or in the roads with her “ YOU WRETCH – you have ruined my life ... I am told by MY MY friends that NO ONE wants you ... ” (and more stronger language – it was understood she wanted all the money of the Estate given to her – on marriage to my father she out of Prison was back in favour with SCOTS Lords & circle – they said she should give them all a portion of a half of the Estate – My father heard this, others did – BUT IT WOULD HAVE BEEN BREAKING THE LAW – I think nobody normal civilized working hard understood the MAD & POWERFUL on drugs – their rising and falling hours of their FIX ) =
I got sympathy - it was understood by my age group & those out at work born 1920s that this behaviour came from The Roaring 20s young : ... Black and white silent films showed it – the KINEMA (originally a Music Hall) would show an afternoon a week for the older people the films of their youth – they could ask the owners – Charlie Chaplin & the Policeman was very popular ... : 1944 at break-time at the Captain Learoy School I got taunted, politely and sympathetically, by a swinging chain of fellow pupils singing `Minnie the Moocha` (`She got a million dollars and sat around counting it in nickels and dimes all of the time) ... But it was agreed by us that in her often frightening tempers she did resemble the Minotaur painting in our history book – hence her names even when we were in our teens were still `Clytemnestra – Mad Mother Kali ` ... She drank lots of brandy only – but she clearly could get DOPE-drugs easily when she disappeared off to London ... She never stopped all forms of Gambling ... and was apparently a terrific Poker Player :
Mid 1860s the former Miss Margareth Ransom saw the establishment of the HOMES of her husband on her families lands as `MY JOYOUS VENTURE ` – And she began to help by learning skilled honest Trading from her father F.R. She tells me 1937 “... and I called it my Joyous Venture Greetah ... I had to learn Arabic – the ladies taught me then I could tell them afterwards what the men talked about ... I was called in to meetings – at first sat like a `dolly` ... It was their idea ...”
· READERS – a well earned rest beside a clear water WELL I will try give you ... me too ... : I, G.R. think of this Assembly www 2011 AD onwards of their work my families of the THOMAS GROTE real HOMES for CHILDREN worldwide & our RANSOM ESTATE in 3 Parts created by my families worldwide all of whom owe life to ... as perhaps a sunken Cathedral = `Cathedral under the Seas` (Claude Debussy) and this assembly of their lives and words has them RISE AGAIN and contribute to the planet as before ... :
· NB: RANSOM ANCESTRY for the vast network of families worldwide : our first purchase BRIT`AIN of a permanent heimat is 92 AD Dunwich SUFFOLK = Our `surname` then `Redemptio` known as honest tax officials under Roman Republic Mediterranean & continuing ROMAN EMPIRE 77 AD Londinium : The known world had many religions – we arrive bringing the soldier`s new popular religion MITHRAS (`God of the sunrise-midday-midnight`) Our two young cousins had been in the Roman Army Palestine – GAIUS our direct first settled British ancestor – takes up duties as `Redemptio` Londinium – this had him purchase a stony islet mid-Thames near Gravesend – he must examine all Traders wishing to come up the river further (The LONDINIUM Army settlement had suffered a horrible shock 61 AD when angry Boadicea (Boudicca) slew them & Camulodunum & Verulamium ) : His cousin had settled at `Temple Harmony` (?) – both young men had wives – Gaius wife had Italian parentage & this may have helped his career :
21st century : I am given some early encouragement this century by very distant blood lines – I had to say `keep your head down ... but thank you : Our Ransom Estate including the TIGGY Thomas Imm. GROTE HOMES worldwide suffered a GENOCIDE 1938-1950s – drug-addicts MAD & POWERFUL have done this : Bavaria to `down under` & round the globe all somewhere linked to our JOYOUS VENTURE – Pole NORD to Pole SUD as the old Mariners called leaving Port when asked `wherefore bound` ? Hopefully some of the family will call on Planet MARS ... G.R.

· 1930s & 1962 my father Frederick John RANSOM brilliant genealogist & British Army & Administrator the worldwide Estate says

· NOTA BENE : 16th century Margaret `MAGGIE` Ransom daughter of F. Ransom & Lady Japan becomes 1st Mistress Carew, then he deceased she takes 2ndly another Carew – we my senior line of RANSOM must now continue through her son who prefers to use name RANSOM : I met some Carew family 1963 in Kent who said “ your name RANSOM is all over our head of the family Carew household ” They descended via Family Gilbert who is the half brother of Sir Walter Rayleigh : At our Montrose Basin Ransom Manor was her 16th century Moonlight frock from Venice – everyone the centuries down had worn it just once – the bodice would be altered for me when I am 21 years : these 16th-17th century VENICE frocks can be seen in Costume Museums, Bath has one – silver thread is spun in the weave – it was stolen 1939 October ...

· Our families Suffolk-Norfolk coasts have already accepted early CHRISTIANITY mid-late Roman Britain & early Anglo-Saxon England : We are always SEA TRADERS the world beyond the Mediterranean an expanding Globe & thus we & others make marriages on sea shores where a SHIP can be safely PULLED in – A.D. down the centuries our RANSOM brides read and write as we Traders who need to keep records of business, write letters, record family and world & local events, & I grew up knowing so many of them down the centuries EAST ANGLIA – grandpa`s & grandma`s. I, 5 years old holding that great genealogy green gold bound am not keen on some names between 400-500 AD = Wolfverd etc which would be familiar those times along our ESSEX Seas Edges = 1938 we have come to talk with `Pat-Clio` who says “ we have not had a Christmas together since 800 AD – we should ... ” : But they all lead in a straight line to my grandfather with a Frobisher mother, my young Father FJR &

1930s I recall XMAS cards, birthday cards from many nations :
We RANSOM families travel from our first years and thus schooling is around the globe & we stay at the TIGGY GROTE HOMES = We are taught everyone needs food in the kitchen (History begins in the Kitchen-Eileen Power) , a roof, hours of interesting useful necessary work, creative leisure, music & the arts – and all languages or as many as you can manage – TIGGY founder of the worldwide HOMES had 110 languages when he was 50 years of age including Marsh Arabs Arabic & Borneo Tribesmen, all of Asia, & of course Greenlandic : I will continue with our visiting of records of years past & entering into 1942-1944 onwards because I am actually present = I had common sense from 6 years of travels and the 9 months 1935-1936 from Pole NORD to Pole SUD with my families Ransom & the INCA-Weddell Sea Quaker Roman Catholic marriage of 1824 (issue 2 sons) = thus we can take tea at the VATICAN = not just those IRISH cousins of the Misses Bessie & Annie-artist Williams and their sister my grandma MARY Helena GORDON Since early flight 1914/1920s/30s we own and use the new transport FLYING - Dear little planes in threes go `ploughing the stars` ( quoting from friend of AM – AExp. who appears on a French bank note ) I remember 1936 South America and looking down on the dear little Puffer trains, sometimes an engine driver and his mate waving to us : Villa Lobos has it in his music `B.B.` affectionately known as `Bach on trains in Brazil` :

THIS IS A WORK OF RESPECT for our ANCIENT `CLACTUNA` LANDS and old families & newcomers – and, of course, for the MARTYRS made 2nd World War, some before :
It is necessary to show the disturbance to all our lives by 20th century DOPE USERS – they are addicts who have little intelligence beyond turning the Bible 10 Commandments upside down as they boasted 1920s-1930s-40s-50s : They, some in the Public Eye forced to take necessary clinic cures - which rarely worked because their minds were FORGED on drugs from childhood into madness – I am followed (I the golden goose girl) by moonlighting powerful figures unable to stop defiant quips & threats – the flickering of their cold gaze, the haughty yah-yah arrogant speech – so similar to the `lah-de-dah` of their elders 1920s 1930s : THEY WERE MAD & POWERFUL & the WORLD was in their GRASP ...

Launching the Estate on the stock market would put it at the mercy of those who do not want education for the children of the entire
world - Great Britain alone DISAPPROVES of our highest education for the rest of the world outside its Empire = its Empire is 3rd from the bottom of the list of world education : The attitude of THOMAS MANN was not understood & his idea never adopted – we would have been at the mercy of World Trade by Empires or Tyrants, who ever was TOP DOG at the time ... :

End of May 1945 flown in by USA friends Ipswich Airbase he RETURNED is he with a face of a mature Saint – Colonel Andre Malraux briefly in the War in France : Town friends ask him `how is Jo, where is Jo` ? He announces himself as “Widower of Josette leaving him 2 tiny sons Pierre & Vincent – she fell under a train last November 1944 :
He needs help – the town responds - he takes a morning sherry some days with Reverend Mother Benedict, sings with the Nuns in their Chapel, some study and writing in Montfort Lodge the Catholic Priest`s Home where a library with rare volumes is for old scholarly visitors, teaches a 10 to 15 minutes in Pathfields School & our Convent, rushes about with Dr Armstrong Geology-History (Cam) to schools – he has petrol for his car : `ANDRE dear` to everyone, talks and works some part of the days at “Stella Maris” 10 Granville Road where my great aunts, daughters of Teresa Murphy CARROLL Classicist have retired 1923 ...

His pre-war friends Professor & Mrs Winnclemann retired have taken a little Chemist 1944 near our R.C. great Church of Our Lady – across the road in the Newsagents is our Choir Mistress Mrs Taylor – she says to many people that she “ ... met that writer fellah ANDRE MALRAUX, in our Church a June night 9 pm “ ... when I was just locking up after my organ practice – it was getting dark in the Church - he was waving his arms up at the high windows – I thought its ONE OF THEM fallen down from Heaven – Oh me sins ! I thought what do I speak to IT in – so I addressed IT in LATIN ... then a bit of Greek ! To my surprise IT answered in good ENGLISH – said he was to meet Father Wilson – I took him round to Montfort Lodge – I said I nearly locked you in – he said he would not have minded – this was the one Church (of 7) he did not bother to examine when he was here in Summer 1937 – he knew Catholic Churches in France but here he had stepped into ANCIENT ROME ... ! ...”
By June 1945 Mrs Taylor said “ I know what will pull him into the world again – we will do a FULL 1610 Mass (Monteverdi) Choir ! With that voice you young ladies he is not going to take THE ROBE – he may take the VEIL ... The young in Paris 1920s had Alfred DELLER to learn from & they took lessons ” !

Young Georges-ANDRE MALRAUX writer, recovering from the bloody sights & happenings of the 1936 SPANISH CIVIL WAR, has many acquaintances about the CLACTON town & Essex-Suffolk from 1937 SUMMER when he came with “a young lady Jo” to fit quietly into the town where he will evermore say “ HERE WE FOUND THE GOSPELS ACTED OUT ” :
... diaries AM himself & including LIR : ` Here he helped swing great beer barrels under the pavement (alongside the corner of Goddards` superior Ladies-gentlemen clothing & accessories Shop - a delight to visit) for the Beer Bottlers 2 brothers small shop open evenings = Josette & I would smile at his tall very tall thin frame dancing & leaping across the junction to Co-op Stores to fetch extra milk or cakes for tea (I make fairy cakes but a grownup has to put them in the oven & take them out) : He says he does not want `Jo-JO-Johhh` and me ‘the Prophet’ in pinafores all the time slaves to the kitchen =
