Letter: Researching Rev Brown-Borthwick, All Saints’ Church rector

Appeal for information.
Appeal for information.

I am researching the Rev Robert Brown-Borthwick (1840-1894) who was rector of All Saints’ Church, Falsgrave, Scarborough, for 22 years from 1872 until his death in 1894.

He is buried in the village churchyard where I live in Hertfordshire and we are creating a web page in his memory.

As well as being a rector he was a noted writer of hymns.

His wife was Grace, the daughter of John Borthwick of Borthwick Castle, near Edinburgh.

If any readers have any information about Robert or Grace, especially any pictures, I would be very pleased to hear from them.

My name is Ms Penny Richards and I can be contacted at c/o The Oriental Club, Stratford House, Stratford Place, London W1C 1ES or please email me at ayot123@icloud.com with any information, thank you.
