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.

MurphySG, may we ask what the name of your grandmother's family is?

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.

I can't find any connection that Tolkien would have had to any Peacockes, but it is interesting anyways.

@MurphySG While the Tolkien connection is interesting, I'm actually more interested in your godmother. My great-grandmother was Rose Peacocke, Herbert's sister. I'd love to know more about Herbert and his family. Is there anything you could offer in the way of documents that may be helpful? I can be reached directly at donnamarcus308@gmail.com
