RIP Mrs Alice James: Alice
James (nee Hilton) was a Lancashire Lass (and proud of it!) born in September
1921. She went to Newnham College, Cambridge, at a time when few
women went to University. She taught at a number of schools before
becoming Headmistress at Wykeham House. Here she ran a very happy
ship before retiring when she married Lieut. Cdr. James ("Jimmy").
However, she continued her already well established local activities,
which included founding and running Fareham Local History Group, now in
its 50th year, and playing a vital part in the setting up of Westbury
Manor Museum, and in the restoration of Cams Hall. She did a lot of original
research into the Delme family (who lived at the Hall for over 100 years)
and published four books about the Borough, drawing on her wonderful collection
of photographs and postcards, as well as helping others with their volumes.
In the 1960's when so much of historic interest in this country was lost,
she recognised, sooner than most, the importance of local history, and
kept her ear close to the ground for information on any documentation
destined for the bonfire, and any fine building at risk. From the material
thus collected, and which clearly required proper recording, developed
the Fareham Past and Present booklets published two or three times a year,
which she edited, and which are still being produced.
