It appears that Francis was a chip off the old Paynter block. According to his g-granddaughter Julie Bray, Francis had too much fun in Monte Carlo where he lost all his money. Quite likely, his family's consequential impecuniousness prompted his eldest son Graham to volunteer for service in WW1 and to emigrate to Canada afterwards.
Francis's wife Carolena [Lina] was from an American Ashkenazi Jewish family.
The photo below is believed to be of Francis acting as a dispatch rider during WW1.
