Outline her Life: "Uncouth, but nice; married Bertie MacNair Wilson MD practising at Glanton, later medical correspondent for The Times when he lived at Hendon where we used to visit them. Was divorced and migrated to Canada". From my father's "Reminiscences".

Marion Paynter tells me that Winnie moved to the Okenagan Region in British Columbia in Canada after her divorse. She also told me that Bertie married three times and had children from all three marriages. Winnie had a son called Dr William (Billy) who married three times. She may have had others. Bertie had two sons by a later marriage who became Conservative Party M.P.s.
