    My wife, eldest daughter and I visited the islands in March this year as we had recently discovered that my Wife’s grandfather was a superintendent at the jail and that the family lived there and her father was born in the jail The family name was Baines. Francis knew some of my wife’s cousins and looked after very well during our visit. We have quite a few family photographs from those days. I will be very interested in your book please let me know when it will be available.
    If there is anything we can help you with please ask.

    All the best for Christmas
