  • Catherine PHILIPSON (????-????)

    EVELYN:  JOHN [Flint]. He was the eldest son. He was a schoolmaster, and with TOM, the second son, compiled and published Flint's Arithmetic, which, I am told, was quite a notable book on the subject in its day. John took tutoring jobs in the holidays, and one of these led him to tutor a boy in a Northumbrian family, the Philipsons. He married Catherine, his pupil's sister. They had 8 children. I believe it was a very happy marriage although at first opposed by the parents of the bride, who were 'County' people, and did not think a schoolmaster - even a good one - could support their daughter "in the way in which she had been brought up".

    Uncle John lent Uncle Tom money for the school the latter set up in Australia. There was some transaction between them. Latterly Uncle John set up as a wine merchant in Edinburgh - "not ordinary trade, you understand, but very select - no shop!" Mother and Robin used to visit him and I believe he was fond of them. Aunt Catherine survived him and lived till her death with her unmarried daughter, Cousin Amy.
