wrote," Whilst in my late years before my teens, Mum arranged for me to stay
with 'Maw' (her mother). Grandad (her step father) had previously passed away."
Presumably 'Grandad' was William Boyd, her second husband. If Winston was 11-12 the year would have been 1932-33 but William's death was given as 1937 on Agnes' Marriage Certificate to Edward Wallace.
Winston also wrote, "Previous to losing Granddad, Mum lost her only brother (half brother) Willie. Willie lived in Bassendean, West Australia and caught pneumonia. Mum was very distraught through getting news that not enough had been done to save his life." Bassendean is a suburb near Perth airport.
