General Information:

Old Africa - 19-9-16 - Christine Nicholls - Stuart Watt’s son Frederick, born in 1894 at Ngelani, near Machakos. In my blogs I said Frederick was taken by his father to Belfast in 1902, to be educated at the Methodist College there. He then seemed to disappear and I speculated whether he had died, because his father had described him as weak and prone to fever. This turns out not to have been the case. Frederick stayed in Belfast, married, and lived in a big house in Rathmines, Dublin, in the 1950s. There he and his wife delivered supplies to the poor in Dublin’s slums. David Quigley’s mother worked for the family as a domestic. She described Frederick as tall and quiet-natured who did much charitable work. He had a son who became a missionary in Africa.
