This is the write-up of a journal of about 120 pages of manuscript written in 1893 by Jane Finucane (née Sheridan), then newly wed to Dr Morgan Finucane, with occasional contributions from Morgan (and for him there is a potted biography in Appendix 1); the original journal found its way from Hurst to L&YT, Dad’s office in London, where it was photocopied and the photocopy given to me by Dad in about 1980; the original is in the possession of the Patrick Grayson (a cousin of Dad). Patrick’s father and mother were Tris and Barbie Grayson; Barbie was a sister of my granny Dorothy and the youngest of Morgan’s and Jane’s four daughters (Ruvé, Mo, Dot and Barbie) – see Appendix 3 on pages 40, 41.
