Scope and content

Gladys Davies had been the housekeeper for G I Taylor and his wife from 1939 until 1975 and cared for both Stephanie and Geoffrey Taylor in their latter years. In recognition of this, Taylor left his house "Farmfield' to her in his will. In her own will, Miss Davies instructed that Farmfield be sold and the money given to the University to establish the G I Taylor Memorial Fund. It appears that Batchelor was Miss Davies executor.
