Eleanor Fanny Mathilda Loeck was born on 5 July 1884 in Hamburg, Germany, the
eldest daughter of
Otto Loeck and Eleanor
May. She married
Harry Morgan Stoe Man on 12 July 1909 in
Hamburg. She died on 12 November
1953 in Epsom, Surrey, England.
NOTES: Her English was perfect, being raised by an English governess May Stellan. Below is a 'Slide Show' of pictures of Nora. She had a reputation as expecting
the very best of others and for herself. She was intelligent and well
educated and was very demanding in the standards she set others. I have a
copy of her edition of James Joyce's 'Ulysses' published in Paris before it was
allowed in England. She was also very protective of her children providing
them always with the very best standards and heaven help those who were unable
or unwilling to support her in this endeavor.
