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.

My godmother was from 4 generations of journalists. I I inherited her house and stuff years ago. I recently found a box of lots of old papers from her family which had never been sorted and it was in that. I remember my mum talking about a Tolkein connection with my godmother's family when I was a kid but I can't remember what she said which is a shame.

Hi
I have a letter dated 30 March 1936 from George Allen & Unwin Ltd to Tolkein enquiring about whether he would edit Clark-Hall’s Beowulf. I have no idea if it has any value or not and if so where and how I would sell it. I would be very grateful if anyone could offer a view on this. I am based in London, UK
