Kitty and Val Hussey

HUSSEY Kitty and Valentine


Catherine (Kitty) Hussey is pictured here with her son, Valentine (Val) in about 1909. Kitty was born in Clapham, London to Robert Rooney and Fanny Rathbone. In 1902 she married builder William Hussey, son of Kensington builder Thomas Hussey. Val, their only child, was born 10 years later.

The family lived for a number of years in Albert Hall Mansions in Kensington (built by William’s father) after which they moved to Tilehurst, near Reading in Berkshire, where William died in 1939. Four years later, Val was killed in action in Sicily during World War II.

Kitty died in 1963 aged about 85.
