George Pearson I'Anson emigrated to Australia in about 1911, and there married Mary Elizabeth Gatenby. George's brother Charles married Annie, a sister of Mary Elizabeth Gatenby.

Within weeks of George's marriage to Mary in 1916, he went overseas, serving with the Australian Imperial Force. When George returned to Australia after demobbing, he found that Mary had had a child, Sidney Roland I'Anson, of which he was not the father. George and Mary divorced in 1920. George returned to England where he remarried and had another family.

Sidney Roland I'Anson married Mary Evelyn Phelp (Philp) and they had a son Graham Sidney Ianson (no apostrophe in the surname). Graham Sidney Ianson married Cheryl, who sent a message to the Guest Book on 9 March 2004. Cheryl said in a subsequent message, not to the Guest Book, that she found the story in the previous paragraph to be a sad one: 'the boy who went to war for his adopted country and the wife who did not wait'.
