Re: Letter to Tolkein from publisher

Subject: Re: Letter to Tolkein from publisher
by MurphySG on 2012/7/15 8:19:44

Hi It is my godmother's family. My godmother was Marguerite Peacocke and her father was Herbert Peacocke, mother Emilie Hawkes Peacocke - both journalists also. Having said that though, I wonder whether the connection, alongside being Oxford was catholicism - they were pretty devout and so was my godmother.I've done a little surfing now and see Tolkein was too. My godmother was a hoarder so I guess that is how this letter survived. My mother would have known more about the connection but she passed away several years ago so that is really all I know.
