of arms the crest appears above the shield and the motto is written below. However, in the days when documents were commonly sealed, as well as signed, it was not unusual for a man of property, or in business, to adopt a crest and motto, without any formality, simply to use on a signet ring. This may well be the explanation of what we are pleased to call our family crest.”

Mary Jane von Dadelszen – where and when did she die?
According to in The Story of a Family, “… we know almost nothing about Mary Jane, except that she was born in Devonshire about 1813. Her maiden surname, Evans, would seem to indicate that her family originally came from Wales. My youngest brother, Dick, who died in 1983, had a small engraving of the Reverend William Evans, wearing a wig and preacher’s bands. … The marriage register of St. Mark’s Church, Kennington, for 1835 shows that Edward von Dadelszen was at that time living in St. Matthew’s Parish, Brixton, which is also part of Greater London. His bride, of course, was Mary Jane Evans and it is notable that the name, Evans, appears three times amongst the nine witnesses to the marriage. First, there is John Evans (perhaps the father or brother of the bride), next we have Margaret Evans von Dadelszen (the wife of George Michael, Edward’s brother) and, finally, Charles Evans Lane, whoever he may have been. It is interesting that Edward’s sister-in-law should have been Margaret Evans von Dadelszen, for this raises the question whether she was in some way related to the bride. Perhaps her maiden name was Lane, in which case Charles Evans Lane may have been her brother. (We may note that Charlton Lane, M.A., was the officiating minister). Curiously enough, as we now know, the name “Evans” appears again as recently as 1921 when Probate of the Will of Gertrude Amy Augusta von Dadelszen, of Cambridge, (England), Spinster, was granted to Fisher Henry Freke Evans, retired major. … Until Eileen began her research I had always been under the impression that Edward was a widower when he left England, but then research seemed to indicate I might have been wrong. “The Southern Cross” of 18 May 1860 and
