    Notes 
    • The Lound family had a very interesting history. An extract from a Lound contact: Jane Barton Lound, marr John Busley Seamark (b.1815), had a brother John Lound, who was a year younger than she was, & a sister Sophia Cooper Lound who was born in 1824. Their father was a licensed victualler of Hooper Street, Westminster Road when he went bankrupt in 1832 - at Sophia's baptism in 1835 (11 years after her birth), his occupation is given as 'gent'. Their mother died in 1837 leaving the children some assets & leaseholds, proved in 1846. According to later letters, Sophia Cooper Lound received 'a liberal schooling, finished in Paris'.
      In 1852 Sophia Cooper Lound took an unassisted passage to Australia with Henry Lound, who it seems was her cousin (son of William Lound). She married Thomas Fox.
      In the meantime, brother John Lound had married Henry's sister, Mary Ann Lound in 1848. He went on to become a wealthy auctioneer & they had 11 children, 9 surviving to adulthood. The eldest girl married [Hallings] Tatham, a ship owner, another daughter married a surgeon, another married the private secretary to the British Ambassador in Argentina, so it was quite an interesting family. The eldest son was a gambler,so the second eldest inherited the business after John died in 1884. Another son was the Rector of Sapcote in Leicestershire.
      John's widow, Mary Ann Lound, proved to be somewhat flighty -- she picked up with a chap 20 years her junior, Faulkner Lee, who was a member of the Mohawk Minstrels (Tambo & Mr.Bones & all that). There was an awful hullaballoo from the eldest son who could obviously see his inheritance disappearing before his eyes. He tried to have his mother locked up in an asylum. It all made the news in the London Times. Mary Ann married Lee [marr reg Exeter 2Q1888] but they later divorced.
      In Australia, Sophia Cooper Lound/Fox went on to have three daughters, two surviving. Her husband was a clerk of petty sessions & later a schoolteacher, but he took to the drink & she seems to have had a pretty miserable life, eventually striking out on her own to become a schoolteacher. She seemed to be one of the 'genteel poor' until her death in 1908, so I was quite surprised to find her brother John left her 500 pounds in his will & I wonder whether she ever received it.
