  • Notes 
    • Wife of John Molteno. Daughter of George Bower who rose to a senior position in the Bank of England. After the death of her husband at young age in 1827, she moved with her children out of Central London to Peckham, at that time a small village on the city’s outskirts, where her father had a house. Caroline lived in Peckham for the rest of her life, for some of the time supporting herself by running a school.

      A great sadness to her, four of her children emigrated to distant parts of the world. Only her son, Fred Molteno and his children, returned to live in Peckham. Her eldest son, John Charles Molteno, kept in touch with her by letter, although the post in those days was slow and irregular. But she had the joy of seeing him twice as a grown man, including during his lengthy visit to Europe with his wife, Maria, and daughters, Caroline and Betty, in 1860-61.
