Every Picture

Maria died in Bengal while her husband was governor there. At twenty three she was too young to have witnessed the terrible massacre that took place some thirty years earlier (look up Cawnpore on Wikipedia).

Joseph went on to design the gas alarm used in the Trenches. His father was the vicar at this rural Victorian church. That's why she has a window here.

Isn't the Internet great for discovering stuff like this.
