     Mary Anna Wolff was born on 4 June 1852 in Elberfeld, Germany. Formed as Barmen-Eberfeld in 1929 through the amalgamation of the towns of Barmen, Elberfeld, Beyenburg, Cronenberg, Ronsdorf and Vohwinkel, the name was changed to Wuppertal (Wupper Valley) in 1930. She married William Maxwell Ogilvie on 11 October 1886 at Valparaiso, Chile. In her Memoirs, Elsie Carlisle described her mother as "tall and rather stately, with lovely features, grey eyes and soft brown hair.... She was deeply, passionately religious - her faith was the core of things; and she loved my Father and all of us children with devotion. But she was a sad person with little sense of humour and power of relaxation .... She was [also] inflexible, uncompromising and intolerant. She was determined to make us good and for anything that she judged wrong I was ostracized until I had confessed and apologised...But [this] never made the least difference to my love for Mother or my knowledge that she was doing what she believed was right for my good.... And how she has been justified in her children.... and I know they would admit that they owed a great debt to the driving force of her character." Mary Anna Wolff died on 19 July 1923 at Bournemouth at age 71 and is buried there.

     (Arthur) Joyce Lunel Cary was born on 7 December 1888 at Londonderry, N. Ireland. He was educated at Clifton College, and then decided to take up painting. He spent time in Paris where he studied the Impressionists and saw some early work of Matisse. He studied art in Edinburgh but decided he would not make a career of painting, though he did draw and paint throughout his life. In 1909 he went to Trinity College, Oxford, where he met Heneage Ogilvie, brother of his future wife, Gertie. He began military service in 1912 as a Red Cross volunteer during the First Balkan War, working in some gruesome battles in Montenegro. He was Assistant District Commissioner in Nigeria when the war broke out. War was waged in Africa between British and German colonies, and Joyce was shot and nearly killed fighting the Cameroons in 1915. He was sent home on 3 months sick leave in 1916, reunited with Gertie. He married Gertrude Margaret Ogilvie, daughter of William Maxwell Ogilvie and Mary Anna Wolff, on 1 June 1916. (Arthur) Joyce Lunel Cary was writing short stories for magazines like the Saturday Evening Post, which encouraged him to think he could live by writing. In 1929 the great stock exchange crash forced him to begin publishing and his first published novel, Aissa Saved, came out in 1932 when he was 44. It sold very few copies and brought in no cash to speak of. His third book, The African Witch, was a Book Society Choice, which drew attention to Joyce and his work, and by the time the war came in 1939 he had published 5 novels, 4 of them based on his experiences in Africa.
