Maurice Capstick and his wife Eleanor emigrated to New Zealand in ( estimated) early 1970's. They stayed with my parents at their guest house in Oamaru in the South Island. They became lifelong friends and Eleanor was my adopted "Tante" Eleanor. She taught me French, played a baby grand piano and had an inside Siamsese cat. All things which to a young girl from small provincial town were rather eccentric/ exciting. Their homes were furnished with grand antiques and many fur throws. They didn't have children and I believe they later moved to the town of Picton and both passed away in New Zealand.
