My aunt and father's sister.

"I am the same age as the century, its senior by a mere three weeks, having been born at the beginning of December, 1899. I have always found this very convenient, as in combination with the landmarks of two world wars, it enables me to pin down the events of my life with considerable accuracy. There must be few people of my age who can claim that their grandparents were married in the reign of William IV as I can, and this fact may possibly have some bearing on the strong influence that the Victorian period has had on my life."

Frances (Aunt Frances) writes about her life together with family history in Victorian Hangover.

Frances trained as a hospital pharmacist, specialising in psychiatric medicine. When I first knew her she was doing a series of locums in the big psychiatric hospitals which were common in the 1950/60s.
