Tottie kept horses, about which she was absolutely fanatical. When,during the first World War, she was told that her horses would be needed for the war effort, she decided that it would be kinder by far to them that they died immediately rather than suffer the injuries and trauma associated with being on the front line: therefore she had all the horses put down immediately.

".....[had a] thriving business at Walworth Road, Elephant and Castle, comprising many shops on both sides of the road being drapers, gents' outfitters, furniture, boots and shoes, etc. and well known as Hurlocks, Elephant and Castle." - Edgar White.

 

He became Mayor of St. Albans. During the Boer War, being a staunch liberal, he spoke against the War and the local mobs broke all the windows in Ver House, his house in St. Albans.

 

By repute, employed most of his family in the business "Hurlocks" which he built up on Walworth Road. Made enough money to "move out" and had a house built in St. Albans, where he became mayor. Apparently, he outlived most of his children, some of whom had various problems, including drink-related ones.
