GRAYSON, Stanley Clare

1890 - 1967

Born at Worminghall, Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire on 9 February and baptised there on 14 March 1890, twin with a sister Dorothy Clare, of Charles Grayson and his wife Hannah Marie née Clare, who married at Camberwell in 1886. By 1891 they had moved to Semer, near Hadleigh in Suffolk, where his father was the 32 year old master of the workhouse and Hannah was the 38 year old matron, with 1 year old Dorothy. Stanley was admitted at Ipswich Municipal Secondary school in 1897 and in 1901 his father was guardian at Nacton Workhouse, near Ipswich. By 1911 Stanley was a 22 year old poor law clerk at Aston Road Guardians, living at Union Road, Erdington, Warwickshire, when his father was a workhouse master at Stoke-on-Trent. Stanley married at Hammersmith, London in 1916, Martha A. V. Antoine and they had one daughter Violet, born later that year. The marriage does not seem to have survived as in 1939 Stanley, a traveller portrait artist describes himself as single, living at 66 Mount Pleasant, Rickmansworth with six other painters, a secretary, matron and three servants. His known paintings are dated in the 1950's. He died at Chelsea, London in 1967, aged 77.
