Note on Husband: Francis Harold Conrad Stanley WOOD

Robert Darlington reports that Francis was born at Castlemorton on 22nd March 1866. He was there until his father moved to South Reston in 1874 where his father was the Rector of St Edith the small church adjacent to the home of the local land owner Howard Jackson. It is here that we find the closer relationship between the family of Albert and the Jackson's (mentioned in the notes related to Albert) in that the youngest child of Howard Jackson was Susan Rose Jackson, born in 1865 whom Francis married on the 18th June 1891.

Francis was intended for the clergy and was a student at Cuddeston Theological College when his father died in 1885. This required him to leave college before being ordained. He found work with The Mission to Deep Sea Fishermen which later became the Royal National Mission. he remained with this organisation until 1922 having been appointed its Secretary many years earlier.

The Superintendant of the Mission was Wilfred Grenfell (later Sir Wilfred, an energetic and charismatic man whose biography was written by J Lennox Kerr and published by the Ryerson Press, Toronto in 1959. In spite of all his positive attributes Grenfell was extremely disorganised with the business affairs of the Mission and this was to cause difficulties between Francis and his superior.

Francis undertook complex and difficult tasks on behalf of the Mission. On two occasions he was involved in the purchase of reindeer in Lappland and their transport to Labrador. once in 1907 for the Mission and again in 1921 for the Hudson Bay Company on secondment.

Francis had not forgotten his childhood friend Susan Rose Jackson and they married on 18th June 1891.

When he retired they lived for a while in Clevedon on the Somerset coast. In 1920 they built a thatched house called Little Picket in an old orchard in Cookham Dean, Berkshire. It is adjacent to the village church where Francis and Susan Rose are buried.

During his retirement Francis was busy with local affairs. he was a member of the Cookham Rural District Council, a Churchwarden, and a manager of the village Church of England School.

Susan Rose died on the 19th December 1932 and Francis on the 3rd December 1944. Francis and Susan had two sons and a daughter.
