bullet  General Notes:


As per Arthur Gunter's Memoirs submitted by Mardi Harrison to West Middlesex Family History Society Journal Sep 2001, Vol 19 No.3, re his uncle, Robert Robinson.
". . . I had an uncle in London who started life as a butcher and gradually worked his way up to be lessee of the underground refreshment rooms at St Martin-le-Grand, that is the General Post Office in London. He and my Aunt had four daughters who all helped in the refreshment rooms, which would now be called a cafeteria, where one could get a slice of bread and butter and a cup of coffee at a ha'penny each, herring toasted 3 farthings, boiled egg 3 farthings, a hot dinner of meat and vegetables for fourpence, and cake and pudding for a penny. Uncle's family, with the help of several employees, supplied meals for 4,000 letter sorters between 2am and 6am, as the sorters worked all night. After a few years Uncle had made a lot of money, and eventually made a fortune. . ."

Headstone in St Mary Staines reads:
. . . Also of Robert Robinson / husband of Jane above / also of Mary F B Robinson / of Ashford / who entered into his rest Dec 31 1911 / in his 91st year / Perfect Peace.
