Notes on Lawrence Dundas Dooner ; Faith Claxton met Lawrence when they were both involved in amateur dramatics in Doncaster. Although he'd had a very privileged upbringing, Lawrence had set his heart on being an engineer. He therefore attended the local technical college where he mixed with working men and women. He loved this existence, and would take part in beer drinking and pie eating contests with his fellow students - which he often won (boarding school can teach alternative skills as well as the more formal). However his very proper and well-connected family were appalled at his behaviour. Eventually one of his uncles agreed that he would support Lawrence, and he 'settled an allowance' on him if he would leave the country and make his fortune abroad. Lawrence, to keep his end of the bargain went to Africa where he tried his hand at among other things, coffee planting. Lawrence was now what was known as a 'remittance man' living and working abroad all the time. As a matter of course, this was not the sort of person that a prosperous upper-middleclass father thought his daughter should marry. At this time Lawrence wrote to Faith’s father asking for her hand. Father is supposed to have asked Faith what she thought of the idea, and she seems to have jumped onto the next ship going that way. She arrived without any luggage – it having been stolen on arrival when wedding dress etc were sent to be ironed in the hotel, and they married straight away in Dar Es Salaam. They then travelled to where they were to live in a house that Larry had built, the whereabouts are unknown at present. This house burned down later on. At this point they moved to Kasama, Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), where Faith gave birth to their first children - twins. Jane survived, but John died after seven months. Christopher was born sixteen months later - Faith returned to Doncaster this time for the birth. By this stage Lawrence, a very practical man, had single-handedly built himself a lorry. At this stage he was building the roads and bridges in the area, and the lorry was used to transport the materials needed. Their daughter, Jane, recalls being in the cab of the lorry and crossing rivers infested with crocodiles - through the river, not over it - and this being just one of the hazards of daily existence for the family. Faith was widowed in Africa when Lawrence contracted testicular cancer, which was diagnosed too late, and he died in hospital in Johannesburg, South Africa. She returned to England, to Doncaster, with her children Jane and Chris, where she lived with her sister Patricia in Sprotboroug . (Information kindly supplied by David Whatley, grandson of Lawrence and Faith).
