Recordings of Lady Erica remembering the past...https://soundcloud.com/peter-wolffsohn/lady-erica-early-years
Sometime back in the 80's we made some recordings of my grandmother Lady Erica Wolffsohn talking about her life and family stories. Here is a bit were she first talks about the daughter inlaw of her cook an then she goes on to talk about her great grandmother Mary Elizabeth Hume born in 1825 and who married Richard Henry Bowen.
So here´s another soundclip, about George Hume born in the 18th century and some mahogony, a bit about the dangers of eating barracuda, the houshold on Regents street over a hundred years ago, horses and polo and a trip to Stann Creek.
