Retep, What is your connection? Just checked my research and yes he was George Arthur - but uncle Arthur to me.

Does anyone remember the classroom block called the Hengist or Engist at Mansel Junior School? It was separate from the main building and consisted of 2 classrooms with a store room in between. Miss Dronfield always seemed to be the teacher in one of the rooms. (She taught Scottish country dancing as an after school activity). I always wondered how it got that name.
