Jacynth Parsons of Strand on the Green

Alison Salisbury wrote in February 2011:

Sydney Clough, who features in your history of Strand on the Green, was my grandfather, and I wondered if you would be interested to know about my mother, who was an artist, who lived in a studio over one of the alleyways just before the war. She married Sydney and May Clough’s son Dennis and they later lived at Hill Cottage, which may not come under your Strand on the Green index, although it was our address, Number 83.

My mother’s name was Jacynth Parsons and she became Clough when she married Sydney’s son. I know she spent a short time living at Number 28 Strand on the Green, but I don’t know which house that is and I have no specific dates. You can look on the internet to see some of her work. She had an exhibition at the Medici Society when she was sixteen and was a child prodigy. Her father, Karl Parsons was an arts and crafts stained glass artist in Fulham. Jacynth died in 1992 aged 81.

Additional note added October 2020: Jacynth was the daughter of Karl Parsons, stained glass artist, and niece of Beatrice Parsons.
