Outline her Life: Kate was born in Alnmouth Feb 6 1868, before her parents moved into Freelands. She married Kingsmill Manley Power and lived at Aston Court, Herefordshire, where my father visited in his childhood (see my father's "Reminiscences"). "Uncle Manley's main concern was dairy farming with a reputation such that several young embryo 'gentleman' farmers lived as members of the household (no farm institutes in those days).

Burke's Landed Gentry (1972) records "Henrietta Katherine Charlotte, Lady of the Manor of Aston Ingham b.1868, m.1stly 30 Jul 1891, Manley Kingsmill Manley Power of Aston Ingham and has had issue. He d.24 Apr 1917. She m.2ndly 4th Feb 1926 William Thompson, son of W.T. Thompson, of Knighton House nr Leicester, and d.1953.

Ian Caldwell adds the following notes: "Henrietta Catherine Charlotte was the oldest child, born in 1868. She married Manly Kingsmill Manly Power in 1891 and they lived at the Manor of Aston Ingham, Ross. They had two children: Kingsmill Manly Power and a daughter, Catherine Blanche. Manly Kingsmill Manly Power died in 1917 and Catherine married again, to William Thompson of Aston Court, Ross, Hereford. Kingsmill Manly Power married Lisa Frances Guise by whom he had two children, Manly and Charlotte. Kingsmill and his wife lived at Berkeley Square, Mayfair. Their son, Manly Power lives in Hatfield, Herts. Catherine's daughter, Kathleen, married Eric Taylor Jacques, by whom she had a son.

Notes: Ray Farnsworth reported in 1993 that he had located and spoken to a grandson of Katherine by the name of Manley. He also noted that daughter Kathleen was killed in the war in 1942, and that Katherine's youngest daughter Diana died in childhood at the age of 6.
