Ellen White's granddaughter Joan writes: "Ellen Jane Marchant (nee White) met my grandfather Frederick Deacon when she was visiting her children Donald, Gladys & Rose in the workhouse, my grandfathers children were also there. They had my mother Maria Sarah (Sally as she was known) and a son called Thomas. Ellen Jane left them all, including here children, with my grandfather, I am not sure if they saw her again, but my mum doesn't remember her very much. After Frederick died Gladys or Rose took my mum in to work for them which didn't go too well, and she left them to join the WRENS. I know she kept in touch with Donald when he was a prisoner of war in Italy and lost contact with him when they transferred him to Italy. We tried to find him through the Ministry of Defence but apart from telling us that he was alive they would tell us nothing else. My mum (Maria Sarah Marchant) was brought up as Sarah Deacon she only found out she was a Marchant when she joined the WRENS, and that Cecil was named as her father, Thomas was registered in the name of White which mum found out when he died, why Ellen Jane did this and did not register them as Deacon's I do not know."
Cecil Edwin Philip Marchant was a house decorator in 1927.

He stayed with us for a few days but was quite ill and died soon after in hospital (25 May 1963). Sadly he did not see my grandmother (his sister) as she had died 20 Feb 1961."
