Notes on their collection at the Victoria and Albert Museum
by Banella Ridout 


I contacted the museum via email. Received a photocopy of a catalogue of William Ridout's china collection, with some of it at the museum. In the Note of the catalogue [requires the free Adobe Acrobat Reader] it states it was prepared as a memorial to her brother, a Miss F.U. Ridout, she also had some help preparing the catalogue.

"A Catalogue of the Collection of Italian and Other Maiolica, Mediaeval English Pottery, Dutch, Spanish and French Faience, and and other Ceramic Wares, Formed WILLIAM RIDOUT of LONDON AND TORONTO" (the title of the catalogue)

Births Sep 1876: RIDOUT Florence Umf*ville Staines 3a 2 Found on the Freebmd site.
