DIARIES & oral 1960-70s = & observations of Greta Frobisher Weddell RANSOM born 11 March 1933 heir-in-training to GROTE HOMES & RANSOM Estate in 3 Parts, with my young Uncle born 1921 the FLYER musician artist LEN Immanuel RANSOM :
MAISKY the Russian Ambassador London perhaps aware of the stabbing to death 15th May 1938 at the family friends O`Neill Farm Ayrshire Scotland of Margareth nee Ransom only dau. of `old` Fred Ransom & his wife Gertrud Poulsen of Jacopsholmen island off Xristensharb : (she (my gt-gt grandma-Walter Benjamin is telling me of her November 1935 Paris at our family early supper) a granddaughter of Catechist Trader polymath `great POUL Gronlander 6ft.5 inches & wife Margaret Yates of Shipping family Carlisle) - Aunt `Mag` Margareth is the widow Mrs THOMAS Imm. GROTE of the worldwide GROTE HOMES 1864-1950s educating orphans worldwide birth to their 20s in languages-medicine-teaching-agriculture-sciences-good technology-arts and music : Called worldwide `Tiggy` he is a great nephew of F. Immanuel KANT philosopher) He the very kindly `Man of May`(1884-1975 will have met Margaret R. Grote in Britain, France, other nations – perhaps met USA citizen Tiggy (father & uncle began 1831 Grote Brokers New York, before his slaying in 1904 Arran ...
1938 summer I and my family hear quietly that my British Army (multi-language writer, genealogist, polymath) father is called to talk with Ambassador Ivan MAISKY & his father Frederick Charles Frobisher Ransom will attend to report on his urgent visit & information gathered from the O`Niell family & local people and Police = Mrs Grote`s whereabouts was not to be known – she was in danger since 1934 – an attack had been made on her in Norway 1936, and another planned 1934 had failed when good people helped her get away from an Aristocrat household : Margaret Grote would be leaving for Rome soon – end of May 1938 - where her grandson was a Priest – it was certain Police reports showed that telephone messages were unlawfully listened to – and postal communications ... :
The matter is that a message of Condolence is received by the Russian Ambassador to London from Joseph STALIN (& no doubt includes his close family) : STALIN has known TIGGY and Margareth Ransom GROTE since he was a boy – they knew his mother : 1938 summer-autumn, the Ruler of USSR Joseph Stalin sends message of Condolence to RANSOM families which includes “ I will always remember Miss Margaret climbing the rigging of her family ship in her Eskimo trousers ... ”
`Miss Margaret Girl of the Snows` (1936 she is my still gently dancing multi-language brilliant scholarly great-great Aunt Margareth) and USA husband TIGGY founding the HOMES worldwide from 1864 had found Joseph Stalin a bright kind boy - but not an intellectual & his mother wished him to be a Priest which he felt would not suit him : TIG and MAG wished to put him in College then University, perhaps in France or North America then return to RUSSIA where he could assist with education & welfare & social conditions : Perhaps he might be at ease within the great peaceful worldwide RANSOM Estate and the GROTE HOMES – 7 functioning in RUSSIA 1870s had originally been 11 but Count Boris who guarded them with his great strength (7 feet tall) and was devoted to the creation of them by Tiggy his friend : Boris found 7 more manageable because of troubles in remote places sometime in the 1880s =
Nota Bene : something happens at the time young Joseph Stalin is 19 years of age and he joins an Army group ... I hope historians amongst Readers can in-fill here :
DIARIES-letters-oral : After the 1917 Revolution and even after the end of the 2nd World War (refs. Reports 1945-48) the necessarily mainly nameless GROTE HOMES (Lindsay Crawford Premier British Earls making trouble – Churchill says of them “LINDSAY a bloody nuisance since the PLANET began”) and our RANSOM Estate passing through RUSSIA to encircle the world twice held in some places : It went on winding its great Philanthropy Via through GEORGIA ... & out to wherever ??? But it continued around the globe and could supply `common sense` to those in need :
Until the late 1920s the HOMES at first were safe = it is about 1927 trouble may have arisen from not having protection & clear understanding to counter local fears and ignorance & such very difficult times : One big TIGGY HOME along the SEAS EDGES was actually safe but the Director in panic lead the children on a long, long trek – many of them survived and were found 1960s & were quietly regarded as HEROES of RUSSIA : –
But ANDRE MALRAUX & LENNIE I.R., Dr John RAY Ransom USA citizen & brother & their abused & threatened elder brother & his sister had it swiftly understood these survivors of the GROTE Children and their families would all be in danger as survivors of the THOMAS GROTE HOMES worldwide = leading inevitably to an unveiling of a horrendous GENOCIDE revealing along the sea shores and rivers edges of the entire world = children sunk in nets, pits of burned young bones , school books preserved hidden in churches ... a crate then two in the VATICAN ... : A memorial road kept disguised but a Procession made when safe ... people who quietly visited and prayed as near as they dared to the GENOCIDE of the children of the globe ...
1938 15 May the murder of MARGARET GROTE : Soon after a visit by Ransom Elders to the Russian Ambassador London requested by he : Another visit to be made to the Mansion home of the Ambassador in Kensington - bringing me nearly 6 years old over the CHRISTMASTIDE 1938 ...
But the GENOCIDE commenced Christmas morning Norway 1938 &1950s still continuing into the last HOMES in Mexico : All the 2nd World War worldwide careful planning by British & Scandinavian aristocrats removed GROTE HOMES because they had disapproved of them since 1883 !!! These were real HOMES begun 1864 and agreed by free Nations A-Z upon the Dowry SEASHORES of the Roman Britain Family (Redemptio) RANSOM of Suffolk East Anglia come from foreign brides of many centuries – Sea Traders needed to pull a ship in & retreat to in times of WARS – A GENOCIDE would be revealed : Here the READER has to fathom “reasons why” --- & can perhaps with me continue to carry the dead children of all Nations outside BRITAIN & its Aristocrats :
NB: ... It is surely certain that excellent education was not approved by Aristocrats of Great Britain & their relatives & in-laws Europe and Scandinavia – “ ... it would be unfair to British Trade ” was heard in luxurious gatherings 1930s- 1950s ... ... ... Reader may wonder if the continuation of the GROTE HOMES from the 1930s, the cancelling of the GENOCIDE, might not have been beneficial especially around the Mediterranean SEA SHORES NNB: I have 3 Grandmothers from 11-13th centuries AD – we knew our ancestral relatives until the 2nd World War = Families descended from `Habithiaea` wife & poetess, Roxanne who has sons and daughters & gives life to a family in Monte Carlo, delicate Goldie Locks niece of a scholar Sea Trader – all married the Suffolk RANSOM line descending to this century : In past centuries knowing WHO YOUR PEOPLE ARE was the norm for nearly all classes poor and rich ...
REPORTS : given in the 3 part work I G.R. assembled from Family records beginning on 3 typewriters all about this house 1990s into this new Century - finally put on internet as I learned computer 2008 February – name “1937 SUMMER Andre MALRAUX, Josette Clotis, Greta Ransom Clacton-on-Sea & WEST GREENLAND – Document in 3 Parts – a scaffolding for the finer work to follow www.greta-ransom.com and this site JIMDO and other sites – photos and pictures & some montage etc are added : We gave orphans life, education, from 1864 ...
MAISKY : At Christmastide 1938 I and my father & probably Len are invited to the Mansion Kensington where Ambassador `MAN of MAY` lives – his upbringing has him with perfect English – biographical notes & Diaries see TLS review November 6th 2015 AD
My father is talking with Ambassador Maisky as soon as we arrive & I think he opens the door himself – I am greeted too by he often called ` MAN of MAY` and after some Christmas phrases I am told to go and see the Christmas tree and the other small children : but JIMMIE JONG is there and grins at me – he is to give a PONG the CLOWN show for the children – the Children are swept out by a woman servant for his Performance which is part of his training at PEKIN Opera when he was in his teens : The Ambassador Maisky perhaps believes JIM is able to take care of ANGELA now a Queen – London society mixes at Races and Ceremonies, garden parties, Opera and Theatre, the Concerts in the Royal Albert Hall - But a difficult situation has removed a relaxed grouping of many talented people in the Arts – films & theatre world = Everybody preferred a man called by some ` Ned` become King Edward VIII for a few months 1936 after the death of his popular father the Sailor King :
It is felt unnecessary so close to an inevitable WAR to have such an expensive display of British Royal Family matters – various obvious reasons are given by educated peoples = that Britain is anxious to retain its ill educated Empire (3rd from the bottom of a world chart of educational standards) and has shown this with a lavish Coronation : divorce is accepted quietly for the last 50 years – Advances in technology and medicine & the sciences show what can be done to have a civilized world where ignorance will cease to breed greed for the few ... :
BUT it is also widely known that neither Edward 8 or his father who died January 1936 were going to destroy the GROTE HOMES – & that a woman married into their family has no claim on the HOMES or the SEASHORES of nations A – Z outside the British EMPIRE ... This claim kept secret by the British Press is ludicrous and it is the Aristocrat drug growers of Scotland who have encouraged her to this – Leaders are the LINDSAY Earls who claim the entire Estate since 1883 when they allowed Millie Frobisher a grand-daughter to marry Widower JOHN RANSOM educationalist the brother of Margaret GROTE married to Tiggy who has founded the real HOMES worldwide on her Ransom family sea shores ... : On the 1883 Wedding visits to Aberdeen the LINDSAY Earl and other men of the family threatened TIGGY with coarse brutal stable talk = he was got away that evening as people felt his life was threatened by these so often maniac dope-soaked Earls and Lords ... they, as I remember them 1930s-1970s resembling a kind of JURASSIC BOG TROTTER ... they claim our Estate from 3 generations back & do so insisting we are Apes & Eskimos – I have put in 2 photos of me 1966 as Ape Eskimo a few pages back : the Throne about 2,500 years old is in the famous theatre ATHENS :
1937 and 1938 : A legal WILL made in NEW YORK and administered by our in-laws GROTE BROKERS by Margaret nee Ransom widow Mrs THOMAS Immanuel GROTE (Estate in 3 Parts) is seen by several nations from 1938 January and the GUARDIAN chosen is agreed as suitable by all – by 1938 spring early summer all nations outside the British Empire have copies the WILL and agree the heirs and the Guardian young Man of Letters with a soul ANDRE MALRAUX as most suitable :
1938 DANGER for Ransom family everywhere in Britain :
Somebody had told Jimmie Jong we the RANSOM family were to make a visit to Ambassador MAISKY Man of May – the children were suddenly called away by a servant to a performance as Clown Pong : My young father does not understand the heavy spying on our families is very professional : Jimmie Jong James born 1898/99 Port Arthur CHINA is half Scots and Chinese & is a maniac because of heavy drug use since a teenager – he has been evicted by his good Chinese family for homicide and embezzlement at 15 years of age = they then put him to a 2 years course Chinese Opera PEKIN thinking that this could be the better education for him rather than France and England – but he has from his childhood on visits to Britain wound himself into bad blood families SCOTLAND especially Earls of LINDSAY Crawford & Lindsey and met a daughter of the Bowes Lyon family when she is 12-13 years – she is (Lady) Elizabeth ANGELA Marguerite Bowes Lyon of Glamis Castle :
Reports from many persons and 1937 from VIOLET Artist Lindsay a cousin to my great grandma Millie Frobisher – see earlier work these files Books of LEN ...
Scotland Earls and Nobles grow a very dangerous drug called Divinorum Salvia Scotland and wear it “up the snout” for 2 weeks or more – it produces determination to steal and with enjoyment of bloody violence – it is also powdered and put in drinks and soups for the unsuspecting who are likely to fall into faints if not trained on it : The plant is torch blown every 18 months into pretty lavender-gilt pellets & Nobles sell it to poor nations, make trouble with it for other nations, and become no-return addicts if they use it for a month or more – they also use the fashionable heroin like so many of British Nobles & heavy alcohol intake ... :
1938 September : My young grandmother ballerina choreographer has been poisoned September 1938, she “still dancing” the granddaughter of James WEDDELL Quaker & Miss SAN JULIAN The Aelovedea-Maria Roman Catholic only child of Acting Governor for Spain Yah. Josef SAN JULIAN f. San Miguel – I saw the 3 poisoners that afternoon of her death talking in our garden Old Road Clacton-on-Sea : From then my grief laden young father age 26-27 years old does not want me to tell his father Frederick Charles Frobisher Ransom or youngest brother Lennie LIR who is only 17 years of age what I know : He says “ things like this happen – one day we will have a world where they do not ... ” I have appointed myself Athena Guardian of the Home & the Citadel of Intelligence - the `Heimat` : Len and me have been learning about Athena as written by John Ruskin and in other writings – my father keeps a Journal he calls SANCTUS SPIRITUS ... These maniacs are always trying to destroy anything we write or drawer or make ... :
Ambassador MAISKY Man of MAY is pleased with my deportment but worried about my young age – relieved that LENNIE is my heir-co-heir : ANDRE MALRAUX is felt to be the best GUARDIAN possible for our world-wide ESTATE – Ambassador MAISKY knows that LEN is a brilliant careful FLYER and driver of vehicles in many parts of the world & training to take care of Transport of the world wide Estate since he is 9 years old – Len also speaks Russian & a dozen other languages : Everyone about us who is SANE knows that only fools would destroy the GROTE HOMES education & the helpful Estate = MAN of MAY will have perhaps met TIGGY before he is murdered 1904 Aran Island by LINDSAY Earls - and he has, of course, met Margareth Girl of the Snows : He is aware the RANSOM families speak many languages including Russian – that TIGGY had 110 languages by time he was 40 years of age – but was not excellent in German the language of his father & Uncle of the GROTE Philanthropy families : From age 11 years when little Thomas I. Grote came from his family firm GROTE BROKERS New York to West Greenland as Ward of the Ransom family of Jacopsholmen Island he was interested in natural history worldwide ... e The Ransom Theater was famous 1830s-1860s and performed plays of the world of all ages & he had to join in : The Ambassador MAISKY will know the difficulties made by Scandinavia and Scotland for West Greenland :
1938 by Christmastide ... the MAN of MAY will have been told what Herman Goering has said about the appointment of young writer ANDRE MALRAUX ... “ ... with Lennie flying the Chariot, the child whose eyes show her Guardian Angel and her soul have fled in fear, young MALRAUX standing up behind them his hands on their shoulders ... they may survive ... otherwise we shall see them in VALHALLA ...” He and other young men and women end of the Great War 1914-1918 have met with the young British nobles, including ANGELA, Teresa GORDON, Jimmie JONG James who acts as if he keeps the young people including these two in order when they have had too many cocktails in Paris, Berlin, Cairo, and New York ...

(end of 2nd W.War 1945) “ I went into a country Post Office while I was in Russia - to send a little parcel ... a young man was ahead of me ... he had just sent a small parcel same size as mine ... the Post mistress had cartons of jars of face cream to give out as gifts to customers ... I engaged in talk with them both on and off & others entering knew I spoke Russian well – another customer was served ... the young man left & I was chatting with 2 others ... then I found I had not got my parcel to hand to the Post Mistress – we all looked about but a little later the young man returned with my parcel ... Our conversations had him so interested he said that he had picked up my parcel and carried it out not thinking what he was doing : I said he should have it ... it was chocolates I was sending to a friend ... he will have seen it was addressed to an Air Vice Marshall : ( I wondered later ... if I had taken it would it have blown up in my face ... I knew we had to beware of such things because of our name and the terror that had happened to the GROTE HOMES – we all stunned as the terrible news came to be known ... But no fear here of JIM tricks ) ” :

If you had lit that cigarette you would have had no face – you said it was forbidden to smoke in the castle – you said you did not smoke to me but you would take it home for your mother as she never had much money ... but you threw it in the bin : Next morning Mr Chapman and I put it on the fire we have at the end of the Drawer Bridge after we sweep the Castle floors - our first mornings job ... it made quite a big explosion : Mr Chapman has now told Mr Graham Greene when he came in to use the old study upstairs in the East wing ... they may be able to find out who she is ...

GROTE HOMES worldwide :
LEN and I are speaking with him November 1936 Paris for a few minutes on the steps of the German Embassy – we have to deliver a note from GROTE Brokers NEW YORK – He was in uniform – says “ You are not going back are you !

1939 – MADNESS of the POWERFUL – an example :
RUSSIAN EMBASSY London –
CLACTON-on-SEA & worldwide : My father & family are called to receive a sympathetic communication Summer 1938 from Russia about the sudden death of Margareth `Girl of the Snows` widow of THOMAS Immanuel GROTE (initially 11 then combined to 7 Homes easier to manage for friend Boris a Count who was 7`2” tall - approved in RUSSIA from the late 1860s onwards – one functioning quietly GEORGIA 1945-46 : I & my father invited to a Christmas function at the Kensington Home of `MAN of MAY` Ambassador MAISKY ... Jim Jong was going to give his performance for children as his special Act of PONG the CLOWN :
My mother `Treasa` to the family or `Tree` to her Noble fiends-friends, always away with them for Christmastide learned of this & saw an opportunity to throw her weight around against the RANSOM families = FOLLOWS on an account of a diary keeper 1939 – read 1960 Colne Engaine :
... “... she Teresa Gordon-Gordon Mrs Ransom visited the RUSSIAN EMBASSY – she came in an expensive Limousine with Chauffeur who escorted her to the doors – she wore very good taste costume, an expensive brooch & scarf, handbag and her Riding Boots – She asked first for tea – she would like to talk to someone in charge – tea and small marzipan cakes were brought – she expressed her delight in these : She had come to ask if her poor daughter known to be mentally impaired had behaved – there was terrible trouble with the child – she had been advised to make this marriage – then learned the family of the father were said to have once bred with Apes at Tierra del Fuego ... :
(Her last remark was still a quiet joke in certain Noble British circles) While tea was drank she was asked what she thought about MARXISM ... she answered very politely & slowly ...
“ ... M A R X I S M ... GOD has kept me from knowing such things ... as Marxism ...
And GOD in his own GOOD TIME will take MARXISM ... away ... ”
She had added at sometime during Tea, that “ She had hoped to make a respectable and high marriage ... but her mother had told her to make this one ... ”
She finished her tea then rose to leave saying she had enjoyed her tea and cakes ... they escorted her to her big grey Limousine & with courtesy wished her a very good day ...
They were never so astonished in their lives,we hear soon afterwards :
THEY had survived A VISITATION from the MAD and the POWERFUL, at ease in world travel 1920s luxury liners and Royal Navy ships with her powerful titled friends ... they either knew or will hear of her brilliant horse-woman-ship in the 1920s & her Wins ...
1939 LONDON RUSSIAN EMBASSY - My father & others the family (probably Uncle Herbert Charles Ransom The Crown Office, and Alfred Charles Ransom REAR ADMIRAL RN 1st World War Asia gave support to their young cousin Frederick John RANSOM ) =
THEY informed the very Polite RUSSIANS that Teresa since her girlhood had a friend who was now the new QUEEN of 1937 : Diplomacy understood that nothing more needed to be said ... Except that it was a pity she had an end put to her Racing days ...
