In 1867 she was called Beatrice, a chubby puss of three years old by her mother.

Moved with husband and Edgar to Australia in 1911.

The Sands directories for 1911 and 1914 (but not 1910) show Arthur Sumption as living at 223 King St Newtown along with AK&Sons. Presumably he lived over the shop. Arthur remarried after Grace's death. Residence at time of death was 172 Princes Highway, Kogarah.

I can just remember seeing Mr Sumption and his wife. He was a heavily built man, rather stodgy. She was small and slight, like my aunties Tibby and Eva. They lived on the Prince's Highway in what I would call Carlton, but Kogarah is near enough. My father pointed out their house to me as we drove past on our way to Thirroul. Never suggested we call on them. Often used to speak of them. They went to Carlton meeting. The Kraushaars were like that. My father spoke frequently of the good times he had with his uncle Carey down at Eden. Something like my experiences at Stanfield. But he never suggested we drive down and see the old man. I lived for 4 years in Mowbray Rd West, within 200 yards of my grandfather, but I spoke to him no more than 3 or 4 times during those years, and never about his young days — why he migrated etc. The Listers, Moulders, Glassons etc were the opposite. Extremely gregarious.

Whilst Tricie was living with her father, she befriended a bewitched woman and helped her back to sanity. RHC has several typed sheets on the matter.
