Immediate Family

About George Ernest Key

His first shop, and then marriage to Beatrice Barnard in Hull. Children: Peter and Martyn.

He left his young wife and children to join the Volunteer force in the Spanish Civil War.

So divorce followed.

A friend of his father asked him to rescue a young girl from Vienna, with the Holocaust looming. He married her in Portsmouth. Always possible to get certificates. I have his first marriage certificate.

He didn't abandon the family, he just couldn't cope with stress, so turned to drink, and he was thrown out. Same thing in the end.
