    Notes 
    • Passenger on RMS "Queen Elizabeth" arr Southampton 26 Oct 1959: Grace L Gresswell, cabin class emb NY, b 5.1.93, marr travelling alone, housewife, resid UK, address Wayvile, Bicknoller, Taunton
    • Possibly her father was:
      - Lt-Col C P Egerton resid in 1919 at 24 Amherst Rd, Ealing [Phone book];
      and possibly same as:
      - Col C P Egerton in 1930 at Tenantrees W Stafford, Dorchester, Dorset [ibid];
      - Caledon P Egerton death reg Dorchester 4Q1930 age 84.
      More details from Stepney Robarts website acccessed 03 Apr 2012, not yet verified:
      - Caledon Philip Egerton, son of Major General Caledon Richard Egerton (1814-1874) & Margaret Cumming (Abt 1821-Bef 1901);
      - Born at Hull 04 Aug 1846;
      - Bapt at Drypool 09 Sep 1846;
      - Census 1861: Pupil at Fleetwood;
      - Marr at Dorchester, Dorset, 21 Oct 1884 to Caroline Blanche Smith;
      - Census 1901: Colonel commanding 39th regt; resid Tenantress, West Knighton, Dorset;
      - Died: 3 Oct 1930 aged 84.
      If above is correct then Grace was elder sister of Sir Philip Reginald Belward Grey Egerton, 14th Baronet, b 3 Sep 1885, d 9 Jun 1962.
      And her mother was Caroline Blanche Smith, d 28 March 1912, daughter of Rev. Reginald Southwell Smith (1809-1895), Rector of West Stafford, Dorset.
      All needs to be verified - still have no indication that *Caledon* Egerton was ever in India ... in any case he was in Dorset for 1891 and 1901 census, whereas Grace was born in Lahore in 1893.
