Note on Husband: Theophilus Rodick WILLING

In 1901 Theo was a boarding pupil at Kings College, South Road, Taunton. He graduated from Oxford in 1905. He seems to have gone immediately to Hyderabad, India. He returned from India, where he had been a Tutor, on the SS Oroya, embarking at Colombo, and disembarking at Plymouth December 1908. He was assistant curate at Runcorn, Cheshire, for about a year. His mother was living in Runcorn in 1911. On 17 April 1912 he sailed on the Karina to the Gold Coast, Africa, where he worked as a Missionary for three months. He had inherited the Living of North Hill, Launceston, worth £500, from his father, taking up the position in 1913, after his first marriage. The scandal associated with his marriage and alleged desertion of his wife blew up at the end of 1913, and was reported in 1914. He returned to North Hill, where he remained Rector until 1967.
