Summary This family history "... begins in 1849, when the author's maternal grandmother Emma Louisa Lowe Fry and his grandfather Edwin Rowland Hammond first met. It was from this grandmother that Christopher took the name Fry, and it is his mother's side of the family who dominate the pages of his book ..."--Front flyleaf attached to front lining paper. His mother was Emma Marguerite Hammond (1871-1958), who married Charles John Harris (1868-1911). They had two sons, Charles Leslie Harris (b.1902) and Christopher Harris, also known as Christopher Fry (b.1907). Pedigree charts at the end show the Hammond and Fry families between 1740 and 1957, and the Harris family between the late 1700s and 1958
