Laura Jane DRANSFIELD [????-????]
Laura Dransfield was the wife of Albert Dransfield who latterly ran his own import/export company, A. Dransfield & Co. She had two daughters, Laura Woolnough Campbell (probably by a previous marriage) and Dorothy Olive Dransfield. The Dransfields were close friends of the Warrens and Leslie Warren lived with them after his wife and children left for the UK in 1938. They seem to have rented The Towers. Albert Dransfield died in November 1940 and a letter from Leslie to his family in May 1941 relates that Laura had settled in Johannesburg but would have preferred to be in the UK. Her daughter, Dorothy, married Eric Walch of LBM in 1939, but they seem not to have remained in Hong Kong either.
