Misc. Notes
A blackish sheep, according to Margery. Refused to join his father in the insurance agency business that Edward conducted from his Teddington home because he wanted to go to Canada to join the Royal
Canadian Mounted Police, which he did at quite an early age. He soon thereafter contracted tuber-
culosis, which put a stop to his police career. Returned to England, where Trevor was born in 1921, but then went back to Canada.
