Dear Mr Jones,
Thank you for your enquiry of 17th April, in which you request
informationconcerning Robert Hardie Wilson and Julia Allen.The only information
we have relates to Mr Wilson. The minutes of a meeting held on 10th October 1901
state that "Mr Wilson, who acted as secretary ofthe club for the past five
months should receive remuneration to the extentof £75". His employment in this
capacity probably began in April of thatyear, after the existing secretary
resigned, having been in the position foronly one year.Unfortunately, we have no
further details and I have been unable to find anyreference to Julia Allen.I
hope the information supplied i! s of some use. If I can be of any
furtherassistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.

My cousin Mike has been digging into our family history and it turns out that my great grandfather was the secretary for the St. Andrews golf club, the birthplace of golf. Thanks to Auntie Anne for forwarding this information to me.
