Wedding at the Friends' Meeting House.

On Thursday last at the Friends' Meeting House, High-road, Tottenham, the marriage of Mr. William Lucius Sturge, of Southampton, son of the late Mr. Edward Sturge, of Charlbury, Herts, and Edith Maud, second daughter of Mr. Henry J. Pollard, of Lansdowne-road, Tottenham, was contracted. There was a large congregation of the friends of both parties. The bride was attired in white satin dress trimmed with chiffon lace, wore a veil trimmed with orange blossoms, and carried an exquisite shower bo[u]quet of white roses and stephanotis. The bridesmaids were Miss Agnes M. Pollard (sister of the bride), Misses A.L. and D. Pollard (cousins), and Miss Ethel Harrison. They wore dresses of cream Japanese silk trimmed with Paris lace and insertion, with cream hats trimmed with silk and lace. The first bridesmaid carried a beautiful shower bouquet of pink and white swee peas. The best man was Mr. Frank Sturge, B.A., of York. The bride's present to the bridegroom was a gold mounted silk umbrella, the bridegroom's to the bride, a lovely silver card case, and to the bridesmaids, gold and turquoise hat pins.

Many valuable and useful presents were received, numbering upwards of 100, including one from the Young Women's Christian Association and one from the Friends' Society of Christian Endeavour and Sunday School teachers. A reception was held at the home of the bride, and later on the newly-wedded couple left for the Lakes, where the honeymoon will be spent. The bride's travelling dress was a costume of pale heliotorpe [sic] cloth, trimmed, embroidered with pearl silk and a Tuscan hat trimmed with lace and black velvet ribbon.

STURGE, Edith Maud (nιe Pollard) (Scholar 1886–1891) who died on October 11, 1964, aged eighty-eight was one of the five children of Henry Josiah and Ann Louisa Pollard, of Tottenham. After leaving Ackworth she completed her education at a good private school at Southport.

He father, a recorded minister, was active in Mission, Band of Hope and similar work and one of Edith Sturge's first services to Friends was as a teacher in the Sunday School.

In 1902 she married William Lucius Sturge and settled in Southampton where he became proprietor of a laundry. She took an active and practical share in helping him build up the business; and they both gave devoted service to Southampton Meeting and the Monthly Meeting.

They made a hospitable home and Edith Sturge delighted in her garden, but their home life had its griefs as well as its joys. In 1936 Bernard the youngest of their three children was killed in a motor-cycling accident, when still in his early twenties. A few years later the laundry was destroyed in the bombing of Southampton.

The Sturges' own house suffered partial damage and in the autumn of 1941 William Sturge died. For a few years Edith Sturge seemed to lose all interest in life but recovered and from the age of seventy-five she resumed an active part in many of her former interests. Locally she still served on the "Titanic Committee" helping dependants of victims of the 1912 disaster.

She kept up attendance at Meeting for Sufferings until she was nearly eighty-two and was assiduous in attendance at Quaker Meetings. She had a shrewd judgment, spiritual discernment and a real interest in people which stopped this side of intrusion. Sympathetic and understanding, her quiet undemanding and undemonstrative friendship were a strength to those around her and her Meeting. Her qualities, and her feeling for the spirit and needs of a meeting for worship, made her a natural Elder and in this capacity she served for over forty years. It is on many lives of quiet unobtrusive, loyal devotion such as Edith Sturge's that the strength of Quakerism in large measure depends.                               (By Courtesy of The Friend.)

STRINGER, Agnes Mary (nιe Pollard) (Scholar 1892–1896) was born in 1881, the fourth child of Henry J. and Anne L. Pollard of Tottenham.

In 1907 she married Herbert Stringer and they lived for a time in Palmers Green, where she was a member of Winchmore Hill Meeting, and later in their own designed bungalow at Rickmansworth. She is well remembered in her family for her fun and laughter, but her husband's death in 1930 was a blow from which she never really recovered.

In her latter years she lived at Chalfont St. Giles, in a house which she also designed, and was a member of Jordans Meeting. Agnes Stringer died on July 22, 1965, and is buried at Jordans beside her husband.
