by E.E. Enock

Can anyone give me information concerning Esther Ethelin Enock [1874-1947] author of Christian-themed children's fiction and missionary biography? The account of Frederick Stanley Arnot in the first edition [1918] of Chief Men among the Brethren was written by Henry Pickering but in the second edition (1931) he entrusted the task to E.E.E. In the 1881 census her father Arthur (living in King's Norton, Worcs.) is described as 'Manager for Brazilian Merchant'. Her younger sister Dorothea Enock may have been the 'Dora Enock' who wrote a strangely titled book (Druggers All) published by John Ritchie (1938). Charles Reginald Enock, author of books on Mexico (1909) and Peru (1925), was probably her elder brother. Any information about her Christian associations is welcome! Timothy Stunt
