The wikipedia article about Edmund Quiggin notes that he was a linguist specialising in the study of Irish. He married numismatologist and archaeologist Alison in 1907. He was one of those responsible for the founding of the Department of Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic. In WWI Quiggin was in service from 1915-1919, first in Boulogne then in the Admiralty Intelligence Division. He returned to Cambridge in 1919 but died of ill health in 1920.

Alison (1874-1971) wrote a number of books on money and anthropology and collaborated with Alfred Cort Haddon.


Arthur E W Payne had been living at Loisvale. He appealed to the Cambridge Tribunal when he was called up in 1918.

He was an accountant working for Bailey and Tebbutt, the brewers. In March 1919 he applied for a renewal of the license of The Bird in Hand, Newmarket Road.

At some point he moved to Yeovil.
