Needless to say, my father, her grandson, was also a headteacher and I have just retired after 18 years as a head. My father was told a story that when the local authority upset one of the sisters, they all threatened to resign and the authority backed down.
The first to go there, Rose Alice Harrison, was the Salthouse connection, because she married Thomas Lubbock Matthews who was born in Salthouse.
He died in 1938, and Dorothy continued running the pub until 1957.
