(3) Ind, My father-in-law, Captain Leonard Morse Goddard, was one of eight (or 
ten) children.  The family seemed to come in two sections.  The first was born 
and growing, when they were all wiped out, probably by diphtheria or some such 
childhood disease.  Tragically, we don't even know their names.  Their parents 
were well-respected educated people, and we have large photos of them, dressed 
in elegant attire of the day.  Then came the last four (or six ) children.  
These apparently were all raised, until about the age of eight (for Leonard), 
when both his parents passed away at the same time - maybe a railway accident, 
or illness. Letter from Jane Goddard.

(22) DK, 'On the evening of 30 March [1918] with her husband by her side, Jessie, 
just forty years old, died of tuberculosis', 25. 
(23) ABR, ABR has cancer as cause of death. 
(24) DK, 'In 1902, when he had married his sweetheart, Jessie Naylor Goddard, at 
St Luke's Church in Hampstead', ABR says: 'whose cousin Rayner Goddard, Baron of 
Aldebourne, served as Lord Chief Justice of England in the years following the 
war and lived to the ripe old age of ninety-four!  Another cousin, Theodore 
Goddard, was the solicitor of Mrs. Wallace Simpson during the Abdication 
crisis', 19.

(26) Ind, Jane Goddard. 
(27) DK, 'One day, while he [Victor Russ] was working outside [276 Willesden 
Lane]...he met a man dressed in naval uniform, who was walking about in the next 
garden.  When Victor told the man his name, the man told him that he had a 
sister named Jessie, who had married a Dr. Russ.  It turned out that the sailor 
next door was their uncle Morse Goddard, Jessie's younger brother, who had gone 
to sea as a boy after their parents had died.  He was now a worldly first mate 
in the Canadian Pacific Fleet, awaiting the completion of the fleet's new 
flagship, Empress of Canada.', 27. 
(28) ABR, 'our [ABR] next door neighbour turned out to be Leonard Morse Goddard, 
mother's younger brother, our Uncle Morse!  Uncle Morse had left home early, 
presumably on the death of their [sic] parents, and gone to sea as a cabin-boy, 
and thence on to a full sea-going career, remaining out of touch with the rest 
of the family for many years.  We were reunited by sheer coincidence - if one 
believes in such a thing - and were quickly introduced to the rest of his 
family, Aunt Grace and a new cousin, their daughter Mabel', Aunt Grace was not 
his wife - see letter from Jane Goddard, 14. 
(29) Ind, Jane Goddard: "this was a mailing address only". 
(30) Ind, He was apprenticed with a Scottish merchant line, and was launched upon 
the infant beginnings of a wonderful career.  He was a strong, resolute lad with 
a great sense of duty and adventure, and he stuck it out (bad food and no pay, 
etc.) all during his teens, learned the art of seamanship, and by the time he 
was a man, he had sailed many times around the world, undaunted by the dangers 
of the Horn, and revelling in all the aspects of weather, etc.  From sailing 
ships, he finally moved to steam, when he joined the Canadian Pacific Steamship 
fleet.  He was mainly on the Pacific runs of most of the Empress Line, moving up 
the gradation of tonnage, as he went.  As he grew up, he moved up the ranks to 
Staff Captain, and had achieved his Masters Papers in both sail and steam by the 
age of 24. Letter from Jane Goddard. 
(31) ABR, Uncle Morse would fascinate us [ABR and siblings]  with long yarns of 
his days at sea.....apprenticeship papers, which showed that, as a young 
cabin-boy, he was entitled to one shilling a month and his laundry.  He had gone 
round Cape Horn in a wind-jammer, and when standing watch at the wheel, had 
learned to fill his tall seaboots with seawater to insulate his feet against the 
perishing winds of the Southern Ocean.  Gradually he worked his way up through 
the ranks until he was a Captain, sailing through the pirates of the China Sea.  
Now he was Captain of the Canadian Pacific Fleet, waiting to take delivery of 
their new flagship "The Empress of Canada", currently being built on Tyneside', 
DK has'worldly first mate' rather than Captain, 14. 
(32) Ind, Jane Goddard: "Uncle Morse had left home early to go live with his uncle 
... He became an apprentice at teh age of 12 ... He gradually worked his way up 
until he was a staff Captian.  He covered the route from Vancouver to the many 
oriental ports several times each year.  Being in the China Seas was not done 
when on the Empress lines". 
(33) DK, 'When he did finally marry, in Canada in 1925, it was to Emma Frances 
Anson-Cartwright, the sole heir of the Anson estates, including that of Admiral 
George Anson, whose voyage to the Pacific and capture of a treasure-laden 
Spanish galleon in 1743 became legendary.', 27. 
(34) Ind, Leonard married a Canadian lady, one of two sisters travelling to Japan 
to tour the Orient.  Her name was Frances Emma Anson-Cartwright.  Her sister was 
Una Lobb (widowed - W.W.1) and their family home was here in Grafton, where we 
now live. 
They were people of distinction, with a fabulous naval history background, 
having been descended from Admiral Anson and Admiral Vernon [sp?] of great 
British fame in the 18th Century.  Frances was short and vivacious and 
lovely-looking, and Captain Goddard and she "hit it off' from the very start.  
Morse was the only child from this marriage, as they both married late in life.  
Frances was a patient naval house wife, who seldom had her husband home, but 
proved to be an impeccable hostess, and they had a wonderful marriage.
