His death was the subject of an inquest at Westminster, 19/12/1911 (unfortunately Inquest Records from this period were destroyed during the Blitz) and he was buried next day at Brompton Cemetery.

January, 1904: also Mary his wife, born 4th. February 1828, died 14th. February 1913, aged 85.” The propinquity cannot be coincidence; perhaps an uncle on his father's side.

A letter to him from Lord Cowdray (Weetman Pearson) is reprinted in the latter's biography. One task which frequently came his way was extinguishing blazing oil wells, and it was at least in part due to the effects of inhaling toxic fumes from these fires which forced his early retirement, firstly to New Mexico, then to Redlands, California, where he died 6/9/1922.

He was an amateur astronomer of note, and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society in 1891. From his obituary in their AGM report of 1932:
“He entered the Surveying branch of the Postal Service and his chief spheres of duty were York (1894-1902), Harrogate (1902-1904), Dublin (1904-1909) and Shrewsbury (1909-1912). He retired, owing to ill-health, in 1912, residing for some time at Kingstown and for the last seven years at Colehill, Wimbourne (Dorset).
At the age of seventeen Hallowes began to take a serious interest in astronomy, and for many years devoted his time to the study of the Moon and, latterly, of variable stars. He was the possessor of a fine 12½-inch Culver reflecting telescope. He was a member of the British Astronomical Association.”
Through his sister Lilian (see below) George made the acquaintance of Joseph Conrad. The author's second son John recalled receiving a present of a model yacht from him; and in January 1913 Conrad wrote to Commander A.E. Loder, Secretary of the London Sailor's Home:
“I have a friend Mr. G. Hallowes a post-office official who has been ordered a long sea-voyage for his health. Is it possible nowadays to get a passage to Australia in a sailing ship from London? He would be ready to start in April.”
He married, 7/6/1893, at St. Martin's, Brighton:

On Tuesday October 27th, 1931, a General Election was held. In the early afternoon George and Lilian Hallowes left “The Sheiling”, their Colehill home, in their small red Triumph car to drive to the polling station. Three other ladies joined them as passengers. At a crossroads near Lytchett they collided with a larger Chrysler car and were thrown off the road. Husband and wife were taken to the Cornelia Hospital in Poole. Lilian Hallowes died two days later from a skull fracture; George succumbed to blood poisoning and the shock of his wife's death on November 11th. At the Inquest (see attached report) in Poole on Wednesday November 19th., the Jury returned a verdict of Manslaughter against the driver of the other car, Mr. Lionel Liddell, local manager of an oil company. George's executors were his children Francis, Frederick and
The Conservative Party led by Stanley Baldwin won a sweeping victory in the Election, winning 326 seats. However Ramsay MacDonald remained Prime Minister in the National Government. This was the last election (to date) in which any party gained a majority of the votes cast, and the last held on a day other than Thursday.

[FDC] LILIAN MARY HALLOWES
b. at Penrith, 6/4/1870; died in Bournemouth, 17/10/1950.
Lilian Hallowes never married and earned her living as a professional secretary and typist. She would by now be long forgotten had she not gone to work for the celebrated author Joseph Conrad (“Nostromo”, “The Secret Agent”, “Heart of Darkness”, &c.). As a result of this her life has been extensively researched by members of the Joseph Conrad Society (UK), in particular by David Miller, a literary agent, on whose 2005 paper to the Society “Amanuensis; A biographical sketch of Lilian Hallowes” most of which follows is based.
Following the early death of her father in 1883, Lilian was left to look after her mother, and in 1901 was living with her in a boarding house for ladies off the Brompton Road. Nothing else is known about her until 1904, apart from the fact that she had by then acquired the skills of a professional Stenographer.
In January of that year Jessie, the author's wife, was badly injured in a fall while out shopping. She had been taking dictation of “Nostromo”, then almost complete, but was now unable to continue, so Conrad's Agent engaged a replacement from a Typing Office. Lilian Hallowes arrived and adapted herself so well to Conrad's difficult personality and working methods that within a short time she had been taken on as his secretary. She worked for him during 1904-05, then for a few months during 1908 and 1911. In 1917 following the death of her mother Lilian returned to Conrad's employment and remained there more or less permanently until the author died in August 1924. By then she had long been fully part of the Conrad entourage; she accompanied the family at least twice on holidays to Europe, and is noted as having escorted the Conrad children about town; while her brother George had made her employer's acquaintance (see above). During this period she also worked for other authors, one of whom may have been Daisy Ashford, author of “The Young Visiters”.
She attended Conrad's funeral but does not seem to have maintained contact with the family afterwards. She moved to Godalming, and died aged eighty-one at the China Hall Hotel in Bournemouth, 17/10/1950.The author's elder son Borys describes her very circumspectly in his memoir of his father; after her death a number of Conrad's manuscripts, affectionately inscribed to her by the author, were discovered among her possessions.
Lilian Hallowes is one of the principal characters in "Today" by David Miller (Atlantic Books, 2011), a fictional account of the days surrounding the death of Joseph Conrad in 1924; and in "Dictation: A Quartet", a collection of short stories by Cynthia Ozark (Mariner Books, 2008).

His grandson Roger Ellis writes:
“Guy had been sent abroad by his father some time during the First World War, and nobody spoke of him, or confessed to knowing what had happened. He never returned. My mother and her two brothers were brought up by their grandparents.”
However the eminent genealogist Lorton Alexander Wilson must have had some contact with him; he records his death in Vancouver B.C., 10th. April 1937 and his burial there. This has since been confirmed by the family.(LAW also describes him as a “merchant” and says that he and his wife were known as “Sage and Onions”.)
Their children, with their spouses, were:

[GAA] SYDNEY MINNS HALLOWES
b. 1877. An Artist, he exhibited Landscape Paintings at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibitions of 1900, 1901, 1902, 1904, and, lastly, 1908; his address being given as Heathfern Lodge, Heathside, Hampstead NW., his parents' home at the time. (These are the only entries in the Catalogues for anyone surnamed Hallowes.) However when he died, 20/12/1948, at Barton Mount in New Milton, which had been his parents' last home, his description in the London Gazette was "Gentleman of no occupation". He never married and died intestate; his brother Charles was granted Administration of his estate.
[GAB] CHARLES ARTHUR HALLOWES
b. 29/1/1872. Educ. University College School. A solicitor; partner in Peake & Co., 6 Bedford Row, London WC1. He was administrator of the estates of both his brothers. Res. Lymington Rd., New Milton. He married in May, 1903:

[GABA] Margaret Brabazon b.1907
A friend of Diana Hallowes, wife of Guy Hallowes, writes: “I have an attractive watercolour bought at a local auction several years ago. It is signed C A Hallowes. The painting I think depicts a scene in the Himalayas and from the style painted between the first and second world wars. It shows a range of mountains in the back ground and to the forefront are green hills and rhododendrons. It has little value but I wondered if this was a relative of Diana Hallowes? It would be interesting to know as if this linked with family history she may wish to know that she had a relative of that era who was also an artist.”
[GAC] VERNON BUXTON HALLOWES
b. 14/9/1880 at 161 Gloucester Rd., Regents Park. Educ. Heath Mount School & Caius College, Cambridge; he stayed there only 4 terms, then became a Theological Student at King's College London. He never married and died at Barton Mount, 17/1/1958. As with Sydney, he left no will and Charles administered his estate.
[GAD] BEATRICE IRENE HALLOWES
b. 10/11/1883. She never married and lived with others of her family in Barton Mount. She died 14/12/1973 at "Herons", Church Field, Walberswick, Southwold, Suffolk.
Therefore of these four siblings, three never married nor seem to have made their way in the world, and in their later years were still living in the parental home, long after their parents had died. Charles, having retired from his Solicitor's practice in London, took a house not far from theirs, presumably to do what he could for them (his wife having died), and settled the estates of both his brothers. Beatrice lived much longer than any of them, probably including Charles, and was probably in a Home when she died.

[HBA] ELEANOR MAUD MARY WADDELL née MONSARRAT
b. at Kendal, 8/9/1870. After the death of her husband (below) she was left in rather reduced circumstances and "lived in Birkenhead so that she could be near her mother. She was a rather subdued person who may have felt that Birkenhead was rather a come-down - gentlefolk in a working class district. They were not rich and Keith paid for their house" (JFTA). She died at Birkenhead 20/8/1934.
She married 19/8/1891:
[HBA/1] COSLETT HERBERT WADDELL
b. at Drumcro, Co. Antrim, 6/3/1858, son of Coslett Waddell of Maralin, Co. Antrim, and his wife Maria, d. of George Langtry, and cousin of Ned Langtry, husband of Lily Langtry, the "Jersey Lily".

[HBAA] Eileen 1905 - 1985
[HBAA/1] Kenneth John Fulton 1907 - 1992
[HBAB] Doreen c. 1906 - 1937
[HBAB/1] Neil Butler
[HBB] KEITH WALDEGRAVE MONSARRAT.
b. 11/6/1872 at Kendal. educ. at King William's College, Isle of Man, and Edinburgh University. He qualified MB., C.M. 1894 and F.R.C.S (Edinburgh) 1897. He then proceeded through a number of surgical appointments of increasing importance, the first of which was as a Junior House Practitioner at Nottingham General Hospital where he met and married his first wife. After 1899 he lived and practiced mostly in the Liverpool area. He was F.R.S.M in 1930 and a member of the General Medical Council from 1927. All in all, K.W. Monsarrat was one of the most eminent surgeons of his time.
His connection with the army began in 1898 when he became Surgeon Captain with the 1st. Volunteer Bn. King's (Liverpool) Regiment. In 1911 he was a Captain R.A.M.C. att. 1st. Western General Hospital. In 1914 though barely within military age, married and with several children, he mustered with the R.A.M.C. and in 1916 became Chief Medical Officer on the Salonika Front. He retired from the R.A.M.C. Reserve in 1921 with the rank of Major. In 1939 though well past retiring age he became Group Officer, Emergency Medical Services, Liverpool and was very largely responsible for running the City's Emergency Hospitals throughout the Liverpool Blitz. It is quite astonishing that after a lifetime's distinguished services to his country and to Medicine, his sole public honours were the T.D. and "Mentioned in Despatches" (twice). From the Serbs he received their Order of St. Sava.
K.W. Monsarrat wrote a large number of Medical books and papers, and beside this was a recognised minor poet and philosopher, publishing several volumes of poems and reflections. His home life from about 1914-1930 is vividly and wittily described in the book "My Brother Denys" by his son Nicholas. A man of strong character and opinions, he never allowed his professional and domestic life to mingle, and his refusal to allow his first wife any participation in the former - he was not in favour of women in the medical profession - led eventually to their separation and divorce.
After the Second World War he retired to a cottage, "Johnings", in Woolstone in the Cotswolds, with his second wife Marie, but returned to Liverpool just before his death in 1963. His Obituary appeared in the Times, and a Memorial Volume commissioned which may be seen in the British Library. His portrait by Edward Halliday R.A., a family friend, hangs in the Liverpool Medical Institution.
He was twice married:
[HBB/1] MARGUERITE TURNEY
b. at Nottingham 4/12/1873, third of the five daughters of Sir John Turney, Kt., of Nottingham and his second wife Juliette Emma, d. of Alfred Topham of Calais. During the Great War she worked in Censorship. She was a woman of great and almost completely unfulfilled energy and organising abilities, born perhaps out of her time, which she expressed to a limited extent by living in a succession of houses, each of which she had no sooner bought, redecorated and refurnished before she would sell it and go on to another.

Brabazon Henry Collis Hallowes died in Dublin, 8 July 1958; Frances Hallowes died in Dun Loaghaire 29 August 1971.
Their grand-daughter Louise Gould writes:
“Richard Carmichael Hallowes and Mary Elizabeth Hallowes had their first daughter Mary Elizabeth who died the day of her birth on 12 May 1894 and one
year later they had their second daughter Kathleen Mary born 28 June 1895
yet she died on 6 May 1897. My mother told me there was tremendous sadness
in the Hallowes home with the loss of two daughters and that my grandfather
Brabazon Henry Collis Hallowes, being 10 and 13 at the time of their
passings, was deeply aware of the frailties of life. He grew up being a
committed Christian and a very loving and caring father and husband. I met
him once and he was a gentleman through and through. I was 3 1/2 years old
at the time and I can still see his brilliant blue eyes in my mind. He was
affectionately known as “Brab”.
Your website cleared up the matter of my grandmother's age. Fanny Warner,who later donned the name Frances Hallowes. She was nearly neurotic about keeping her age a secret. Maybe it's because she married later in life at the age of 30. I don't know, but she use to boast that the only person who knew her age was her barrister. I thought she was 82 when she died, but I see she was 84. She would never admit to being any age, feeling that it
aged one greatly keeping track of time. She was a very level headed woman, so it was the one inconsistency that made her life that much more interesting. She loved people and was extremely well read. She spoke German fluently as she was an au pair in Germany for many years prior to WW I, perhaps 5-7 years, caring for a Jewish doctor's daughter. She loved this family very much and enjoyed the beautiful German country and the wealth of the their music and literature. Yet “Bunnie” (her nickname) saw anti-Semitism firsthand and my mother related to me that her mother never fully forgave the German people for their hatred, which troubled my grandmother greatly, being a Christian.
But I think she did find the ability to forgive that she longed for. As fate would have it, my sister and I were in Ireland touring by bicycle when our grandmother had a stroke and we were with her the day of her death. It was a day to remember indeed. She impressed upon her only two granddaughters the power of love, saying it was the the one and only indestructible force in life and that it was to be sought above all else, and that once found it would be with us always. I didn't realize at the time that she was speaking of The Person Jesus the Christ. She passed ever so peacefully that evening.”
The Warner Family and the associated Malins Family, both of Dublin, are being researched by Peter and Leonie Malins (email: email@example.com). Peter is in the third generation of descent from Elizabeth Warner, who married William Malins in 1875 and died later the same year soon after the birth of their only child. If the generations fit she would have been Frances Warner's aunt; her parents are believed to have William Cyrus Warner and his wife Maryann (Goodman) which would mean that Frances' father bore the same name as his father before him.

[HLC] RUTH MARION HALLOWES
b.1886 in Newark. From the Berry Archives: “As a young woman she went out to India for a time. She trained as a nurse, but as the result of an accident was unable to work as such. Instead she became a tutor and was involved in setting and marking nursing examinations. She lived the greater part of her life in London. She was a quiet, shy and very unselfish person with a keen intellect, who managed to retain the ability to communicate with those much younger than herself. She was well read and widely travelled, visiting the continent most years until she was too old to travel. Many of these visits were made with Lady Masefield, widow of the Poet Laureate, who had become a close friend of hers. She never married, and died 13/12/1972 at Gerrard's Cross.”
(Her two siblings died young.)
