Wynne's mother was born in Wurzburg, Germany on 19th March 1849 and was
christened Blanche Helene Umalie Fery. She was the third of five children
born to Hans Karl Reinhard Christoph Hermann Ludwig Bruno von Poellnitz...and
Eleanore Mary Elliot of Wolflee.
Walter, with Herbert, Wynne and Rita Fallowfield - in 1912.
Click on the arrow for Ysobel's memories of Uncle Walter's visits:
Charlotte married Arthur Butler.
She died in 1885, long before the diaries commence, but Arthur and his
two daughters, Ysobel and Brenda, feature prominently. Ysobel was
one of Wynne's closest compatriots, which is why the latter named her
first daughter after her. Yso married Denis Vanrenen, and went to live
on his estate in the Punjab. She had four children, and they in their
turn make their occasional appearances in the diary. Yso appears a great
deal in the early diaries, sometimes as Bill, and even Ebbo I think. They
were very close, and as you can see from the January 1901 entry, when
Wynne moved to Woolwich one of the pleasures was to have them nearby.
Eleanor's last daughter, Aime, married first, Hugh Fallowfield
and second a Mr Macintosh who was not popular with the family and was
known as the "Wow". Aime and Hugh had five children, of whom
the eldest were close to Wynne. In order of birth they were Nora, Bill,
Algy, Rita and Walter.
