(3) Census 1861, RG09 pce88 fol161 p2. (4) Thomas Cullen Roberts, Letters, 'Grandfather came to this country in 1887 or 1888. He had been a CPA in partnership with another man, whose name escapes me at the moment, with offices at 7, Vigo Street, London ......Grandfather was a CPA here, in practice for himself until he died in 1942 at the age of 82. He is regarded as one of the early pioneers who helped establish the accountancy profession in this country. He was president of the New Jersey Society of Certified Public Accountants at one time and Secretary of the old American Association of Certified Public Accountants for several years', 18 Jun 62. (5) Thomas Cullen Roberts, Letters, 'was a schoolteacher, as I understand it. She was never happy over here and died in 1905, as much from a broken heart as anything', 18 Jun 62. (6) Thomas Cullen Roberts, Letters, 'grandfather was a member of the London Scottish Regiment and that Ernie was a member for a short time. The old man had his tartan and kilts for many years and I have some of his ornaments today which were passed on to me', 18 Jun 62. (7) Thomas Cullen Roberts, Letters, 'Some of the children went to St. Marylebone and All Saints School, now extinct. I am sure Edith went there and one of the boys, also', 18 Jun 62. (8) Thomas Cullen Roberts, Letters, 'Ethel, despite her 88 years, is in fine health generally speaking. She is a little thing, hardly weighing more than a 100 pounds. She lives in Montclair, N.J. in an inn with several other widowed ladies and comes in to New York from time to time to have lunch with me. Ethel was the last of the family to come over here, about 1895 when she was 20 years old. While in London, she lived with your Grandmother Harte, who wanted to adopt her, but Ethel's father would hear nothing of it. Ethel tells me she was flower girl at Florence Challen's wedding and Edith was flower girl at Annie Foxell's wedding', Florence Challen is presumably a mix up by Roberts - Blanche Francis Harte married Frank Challen; Florence Harte was unmarried. MJH: Letter of 13 June 1985 suggests she was wanted for adoption by Mary Ann Foxell - clearly wrong. 18 Jun 62. (9) Thomas Cullen Roberts, Letters, TCR [25/6/55] has him as CCR - presumably Charles Cullen ROBERTS.
