    • Unlike his other books, this one is a novel. Like most novelists, though, Philip has set most, probably all, in places known to him - including Balham, where there is a couple and their son. Is this family based on my Dad and his parents, with whom Philip had tea sometimes? I guess it it, though the situation is different. My grandfather suffered a lot of ill health, in the novel the mother is ill. The doctor in the novel helps the Balham lad become a doctor. Did Philip have this hope for my Dad? If so it was in vain, he didn't pass the exams for grammar school and left at 14 to become an office boy!

    Philip Inman's home in Kirkgate
    My 2 x great grandfather seems to have been living in Kirkgate by 1851 and until his death in 1894. These cottages include the one where his youngest son Philip was born in 1892, and this was quite likely where he had lived for all of those years, with both his wives and families.

    Described by Philip Inman junior (b.1892) in his autobiography "No Going Back" (p.11):
    The home I was born into was a cottage, one of a row of four, long since demolished. They were whitewashed and had thatched…

    The Inmans: a family of characters
    My great grandfather John a servant but described himself as a 'gentleman'; pretended a golf's club money was his - and in his 60s asked for the hand of a young woman in her 20s - but accepted her older sister instead.

    His brother - commemorated by a plaque in Knaresborough Church due to his work for it.

    Their half-brother - elevated to the peerage.
