About Gabriel Arthur Madox Rossetti


From "Some Reminiscences Of William Michael Rossetti ...". 2017. Google Books. Accessed April 5 2017. page 453

"I will subjoin some brief account of my children, one by one, as they stand at the date of this present writing, November 1902.

"Arthur is the only Rossetti (within my knowledge) who ever showed a scientific turn. In boyhood he had plenty of opportunity of reading poems, romances, histories, biographies, etc., and he showed an ample appreciation of such work; but studies of chemistry, algebra, and other matters of science, engaged his chief personal attention; for a spell of light reading he would take up the Differential Calculus. He wanted to be an electrical engineer, and was put in the way of pursuing that vocation. Towards 1896 he was placed as a student in the large engineering works of Messrs. Jackson & Co. of Salford. Here he became intimate with the manager of the firm, Mr. J. Slater Lewis, an excellent man of very superior abilities. Afterwards, late in 1899, an opening was found for him in a business in Bolton which seemed eligible though it is not concerned with electricity—the so-called "Lancashire Stoker Works" of Messrs. Bennis & Co. He became the works-manager to this firm, and has of late passed into a different position—that of scientific referee, which takes him a good deal away from Bolton to other parts of the kingdom, and sometimes abroad. In September 1901 he married Dora, a daughter of Mr. Slater Lewis, who had died suddenly not long before. Amiability and excellent sense distinguish my daughter-in-law, who in October 1902 made me the grandfather of a boy, Geoffrey William.
