Mildred Hall

Mildred Hall

From autobiographical notes by Edward Holroyd Pearce (Lord Pearce) 1989:

"So she [my mother] packed me off for the whole summer term to an Aunt at Bourne End who would give me a rest cure, spoil me, and over-feed me. That was a lovely summer. I spent much of it rowing my Aunt on the river, while she chattered in merry and inconsequential non-sequitors. Since greed was now a virtue I made many curious and delicious concoctions of good food in my nest underneath an old upturned sailing boat in their orchard."

"My sweet but ineffective Aunt Mildred came with us [to France] as a vine rather than a prop. Jack was then twelve, clever, bright eyed, and temporarily very naughty. He had reached the stage at which he felt it necessary to assert his manhood against petticoat government. It was arranged that I should go with them, see them safely installed on their holiday in the little Rouen boarding house and then return home after a few days, since I had to join Uncle Philip in the Lake District. His wife had just died and he was desperately unhappy, lonely and uncontrolled. So, emotionally daunting as the prospect was. I could not in decency refuse his plea for my company."


JAC Pearce writes:

She was a divorcee when she married Nugent and on the day of the wedding Nugent bought up all the papers locally so that his father wouldn't see them!

Alan Ray-Jones writes:

Her brother in law Mr William Riley, who with her sister Linda lived with Mim in later life, was wonderful with children. I (Alan Ray-Jones) remember that he tried to teach me to play golf, but above everything in my eyes was a magician. He could make things move from one side of the room to the other in the most amazing way, or move an egg under one cup on the mantelpiece to another. At the time I knew them he and Aunt Mim were living in Bournemouth, where we used to visit them from time to time. I thought she was very nice!
