Story

Alice was born in Vizagapatem, Madras, India, daughter of Nicholas Fenwick Johnson and his wife Bridget Mary. She was baptised in Madras on 22nd December 1845. Her Father was a Major General in the 26th Madras Native Infantry, and they were living at Secunderbad India.  In 1857 there was an Indian rebellion against the rule of the British East India Company, which functioned as a sovereign power on behalf of the British Crown.  This may explain why Bridget and her Children came back to England and their Father stayed in India. Alice spent her childhood in Edwardes Square, Kensington.  In 1861 Bridget and her children were living at Oak Cottage, Dorman’s Land, Lingfield. Their Father also died in this year in Salem India of Liver Disease.
