Pearl of Pearl Island

John Oxenham [pseud William Arthur Dunkerley]

William Arthur Dunkerly (1852-1941) was an English journalist, novelist, poet and writer of hymns. He used the name 'John Oxenham' for his novels, poems and hymns and the name 'Julian Ross' for his journalism. Perhaps he didn't like the name Dunkerley? His daughter Elise Jeannette Dunkerley (1880-1960) wrote novels for children under the name Elsie J. Oxenham. This novel is set partly in the Channel Island of Sark, the scene of a previous novel entitled Carette of Sark (Hodder & Stoughton, 1908). The date of this edition is guessed.
