A recent reading of "The Picts and the Martyrs" has given me what I consider to be definitive answers to a couple of issues which have been discussed here a number of times. The first is the question of where do the Ds live?

It appears that they are glad to have been invited to Beckfoot by an absentee Molly Blackett because otherwise they would have had to spend two weeks "sweltering in London" while their father marked exam papers.(Chapter 2) I doubt that they would have sweltered there unless it was their home.

Secondly, did Nancy and Peggy go to boarding school?

The GA seems to think so, because in her letter inviting herself to come and look after the lonesome waifs abandoned by their mother, she writes"...your mother did not tell me that she would be away from home when you returned from school for your vacation." (Chapter 3)
