Historic family link with Warwick School continues with baby's baptism

Ian Hughes 1st Jul, 2018

A 90-YEAR family link with Warwick School has been celebrated with the baptism of the great-granddaughter of a former head boy in the school chapel.

Baby Flora’s great-grandfather was ‘HB’ Robinson, a past head boy and captain of both rugby and cricket who later returned to the school as deputy head of the Junior School for 20 years after a career in the RAF.

The baby’s mother is Sarah Whitehouse – nee Robinson – the daughter of Nigel Robinson, a past chairman and president of the old boys’ association.

Sarah and her brother Peter were both baptised in the school chapel, where the funeral service of their grandfather, ‘HB’, was also held.

Sarah’s marriage to Robert Whitehouse also took place in the school chapel, as did the baptisms of their other two children, James and Edward.
