George Raff - Personal Life

Personal Life

Raff lived a happy social life with his family (wife and seven sons) at his house in New Farm, until the death of his wife in 1879. Approximately four years later he married again, to Jane Molle, née Lord. Molle was a widow and she had children of her own. This led to Raff's effective estrangement from his sons.

Raff died on 28 August 1889, survived by his seven sons. He left an estate valued for probate at £5038.

Famous quotes containing the words life and/or personal:

    We have long forgotten the ritual by which the house of our life was erected. But when it is under assault and enemy bombs are already taking their toll, what enervated, perverse antiquities do they not lay bare in the foundations.
    Walter Benjamin (1892–1940)

    The primary imperative for women who intend to assume a meaningful and decisive role in today’s social change is to begin to perceive themselves as having an identity and personal integrity that has as strong a claim for being preserved intact as that of any other individual or group.
    Margaret Adams (b. 1916)
