Alice FERRIS appears to have been a relative of the ROADWAY family, born around 1859 at St. Pancras, Middlesex. She was the niece of George ROADWAY, who I think was the brother of Louisa's father John.  In the 1881 census she appears at 12  Henrietta Villas in Bathwick, Somerset and was staying with her Uncle and Aunt, George and Mary Ann ROADWAY.

A poem by Charles Fingsley, written in to Louisa's Album by Alice FERRIS.

Alice left her mark in Louisa's Album in the October of 1885, by writing into the album an untitled piece that initially I thought could have been written by Charles Fingsley.  However, I have been advised that there was an author called Charles Kingsley born at Holne in Devon in 1819, so Alice most probably copied part of or one of his works.

Charles Kingsley was born in 1819 at Holne in Devon and was the son of the Vicar of the parish.  You can find out more about him and read some of his works on the following websites:
