General Information:

Red 22 - Kahuhia, Fort Hall
Nicholls - Handley Hooper at Kahuhia had similarly strong views as Owen {Archdeacon W.E. Owen}, but was far more circumspect when advocating African interests
Foster - After ordination he came to Kenya in 1916 to assist his father at CMS Kahuhia Mission. In 1926 he was appointed the Africa Secretary of CMS based in London, until 1950 when he retired and was appointed Rector of Houlton Parish in Oxfordshire.
Rabai - At Kahuhia the local authorities were wary of offending Kenya-born Handley Hooper and his wife Cecily, who had very strong views about labour. Handley was the son of the veteran missionary Douglas Hooper and father of the third generation Missionary Cyril Hooper.
