When I discovered that Ransome's good friend and uncle to the Altounyan children, Robin Collingwood, had written a famous history book, I decided to borrow a book called "Formative years: R.G. Collingwood".
Sadly, there was nothing in the index about AR, and it said he barely had anything to do with his sisters!
But this author said that two of the sisters were Barbara and "D. Susie Collingwood". It has to be Dora. So maybe Susan Walker is also a reference to Dora?
(Oh, I see now, the biographer found her name in an article she had written in 1900 on "John Ruskin as girls knew him" - maybe she didn't want to be known by her usual name.)
