Bryan Mary Angell née Doyle (1904)

Bryan Mary Julia Josephine Doyle aka Dodo (2 march 1877 - 8 february 1927) was the 9th child of Charles Altamont Doyle and Mary Josephine Foley, and the 7th sister of Arthur Conan Doyle.

The Christian name "Bryan" was dedicated to a friend of the family Bryan Charles Waller who helped their finances. The records for baptism shows "B. Mary Julia Josephine" which may indicate that this choice was not approved by the Church.

Middle names:

  • "Mary" is probably dedicated to her sister which died aged 2 in 1863, 14 years earlier.
  • "Julia" was dedicated to Julia Waller, the mother of Bryan Charles Waller.
  • "Josephine" to his own mother Mary Josephine Foley.

She wrote 2 novels under the pen name H. Ripley Cromarsh : The Episodes of Marge: Memoirs of a Humble Adventuress (1903) and The Secret of the Moor Cottage (1906). And also a volume of verse At the Waters of Strife (1918) under her real name (Brayn Mary Angell).
