  1. My Great Grand Aunt was Anne Estella Sarah Penfold Mathews and she married George Cave in Marylebone on 6 Jan 1885. My Grandfather, who was her nephew (Rodber (Peter) Pemberton Horton) is written about in her book “Odds and Ends of my Life”. The Caves had 4 children who died young or at birth all buried in Richmond or Kensal Green, London. They later lived in St. Annes in Burnham on Sea and when Viscount Cave died on 29 Mar 1928 he was buried near his dear friend and brother in law (William Knox Laurence) in Berrow . Dr. Percival Mathews was Estella’s brother and he moved into a house in Burnham to be near his sister in his later years. Countess Cave (Estella) died 07 Jan 1938 and is buried with George at Berrow. Estella was born in Somerset, but her brother..Sir Lloyd Mathews was born in Funchal, Madeira . He was First Minister to Zanzibar. George Cave’s brother Basil Cave was Consul to Zanzibar.

    1. Thank you very much ,Coral, for this information. Many of Burnham’s residents will have hear about Lord Cave and his home at St Annes but I suspect this information , myself included, will be new to most.
      Thank you again,
