According to Sylvia Murphy, when Doris married Eric Cuthbert she gave as her father's name Arthur David Linklater. “As she had been unable to find a record of her birth, it appears that she did not know that her name at birth was Schaumburg, and that her surname had changed to Harris when her biological and legal father changed his name by deed poll in 1914. Arthur David Linklater was her stepfather. One of the witnesses at her marriage to Allan Turner was N V (Nelson Valdemar) Linklater, her stepbrother.” I can only assume Sylvia Murphy was told this by Doris herself [see ‘Sources’ below] but it needs slight correction; Nelson Valdemar Linklater was her half- not step-brother. They shared a mother but had different fathers.
