    • My dear Mother, Elizabeth Parker of Durham ... and her sister Sarah Parker were the only children of one the Rev. Edward (I think that was his Christian name) Parker, Vicar of a Church in Durham. He, as well as his wife, died whilst my Mother and Aunt were still children; the Rev. George Louisa Nicholay, one of the Brethren of St. Katharine in the Tower of London, was their Guardian. His father was, I believe, a Tutor in the family of King George III. George Louisa Nicholay, my Mother's Guardian, was I have been told, a godson of George III, after whom he was called George Louisa. We, my Mother's children, always knew him as our Grandfather.
