Collection home page

This collection comprises letters sent by H.E. and (mainly) Honor Maude from the islands to Harry’s parents, and cover both personal/family matters as well as descriptions of their life and activities. They were kept by Lady Maude and returned to Harry and Honor many years later, and were received in 1998 to assist in the writing of the Maude’s biography. Note with letters: Honor and Harry Maude's letters to Harry's parents between late 1929 and mid 1939. The Maudes left the Gilberts later in the year for Fiji and New Zealand for treatment of Harry's back at Rotorua. On returning to Fiji they were sent to Pitcairn Island, where they were marooned for 8 months owing to German raiders, hence no letters. In the meantime, Sir Walter and Lady Maude had gone to England to avoid the German occupation of the Channel Islands. Before they could return to Guernsey, Sir Walter died.
