There's a thread in sensitive research now (a bit shorter at the moment!), so , Mary, I'll move your last post over there and perhaps any further posts for Reverson could also be posted in SR.

Merry - your post no 49: I missed responding to this question on William acting as an executor for a Simmonds - it's from # 22.

Thanks, Reverson.

I hadn't read back, so had forgotten about that Simmonds connection (if it is a connection!). I will add it to the other thread.

I expect she was just a patient of Dr Reverson's,
I've just realised Clara was living at the same address as William R in 1937 (e-rolls) so perhaps she was his housekeeper. She had been replaced by 1939.

Before my time, I fear!

I remember his house, and how he refused to sell, while gim-crack properties went up around him.

So much useful information keeps on turning up online that it is helpful to revisit old threads.

William Reverson attended the Simon Langton school for boys from at least 1906, being awarded prizes and honourable mentions at the end of year, and later giving a memorable performance as Mrs Malaprop. As some of his successes were reported in a Whitstable newspaper, this suggests Mary Lewis of Blean was in truth his guardian by this stage.

He volunteered as a soldier in 1915, by which time he must have been living in Crayford as when he returned home on leave in 1916, he was given a hearty welcome by his many friends.
