Hello Robert,

Matthew John was born in Rotterdam, Holland abt 1872, he also had a sister Jeannette.

He is recorded in the 1901 census as a teacher of languages and a British Subject. To be a Brirish subject he had to be nationalised, there is a file on him in the National Archives in Kew. That file will list the maiden name of his mother. I have discovered her first name.

Maaicke Hester is my original guess at the name of my grand fathers mother, which is on my Hester family on Ancestry. Nothing new from you I am afraid
