ancestor= Rev. Richard Hudson Courtenay, born 1869
comments= I am the Historian of the Anglican Chaplaincy of Basel, Switzerland. Rev Richard Hudson Courtenay was Chaplain here from 1928 to 1945. He died in Les Planches, Montreux, Switzerland, on July 19 1945. We know that he was born 1869, and in 1900 to 1923 was Chaplain of the St John's Anglican Church, Rangoon, Burma.
We know that he was married to a lady of maiden name Riley, but find no reference to her until the probate document of the Basel Switzerland city administration, which shows here as a next of kin in London in 1945. We have no further details since all church archives are lost or destroyed.
We would like to know who he was, where he was born, family circumstances, and any descendants. We wish to record him properly and with honour, as he served here for 17 years and was virtually forgotten.
