    My mother was friendly with a Poor Clares sister in the 1960s. We called her ‘Aunty Aggie’ but she was not a blood relative. ‘Aunty Aggie’ would be 110 120+ years old if she was still alive. We went to visit her once, I was 4 years old, my mother spoke to her by the fence. We lived in Upminster, near London and it was a reasonably long drive (in the mind of a 4 year old). My mother thought very highly of ‘Aunty Aggie’ so we did too, and every Christmas my mother would send her castille soap and toothpaste as a gift, and we would watch her wrap it up.

    Was there a Poor Clares monastery in the south of England in the 1960s? If so, is it the Hereford monastery? My oldest sister has some memories of this lady, and thinks that the monastery we visited might be in Arundel. We would love to know.

    My family are going through our history somewhat because my father turned 90 this year. It is a milestone birthday. My mother passed away 7 years ago unfortunately.

    We emigrated to Australia in the late 1960’s. I am in my 60’s now. I am a nurse and live in Melbourne, Victoria. The sister Barbara mentioned above is a dentist and lives in rural New South Wales.

    I would love to hear from you.
