      Hi Geoff, I have no idea whether there is a connection with your family, but
      in 1968 I met a young woman named Joyce Harris, a teacher on the island who
      had just come back from training in England. She would have been in her
      early twenties, I think, and lived near High Knoll.
      Strange how many Saints have connections with Portsmouth, where I grew up!
      My father's family lived in Eastney for many years, some still do, and I
      went to my first school there. I left in 1963, my family by then having
      moved closer to London, where I worked and from where I got the job which
      connected me to St. Helena.
