Re Bob Blackett and the suggestion that Bob was a school friend of Jim; Mrs Swainson says of the Walkers (SD9) "who are the others ..... they donít look to me like Blacketts, nor yet like Turners" implying that Bob Blackett was from a local family.

Perhaps when Molly married Bob she "married beneath her" into a family that was not in the local gentry, and this was the reason for the Great-Auntís disapproval of Bob? I have a couple of examples several generations back in my family; one marrying the family maid and another remarrying to the family groom.
