In December 2010, Harold Chesterman sent the following extract from William's Diary.
Tuesday 9 February 1897
School all day. Lessons the whole evening. Father (ie William Thomas Chesterman) went to "Mentone" to tea to see Grandmother (ie Eliza Tupman) for the last time before she went to Spain. Translate English history into French now.
Monday 15 February
School all day. Had privilege, out at 10 to 4. Doing lessons all the evening. Auntie Tupman (presumably Matilda) forwarded the telegram to say Grandmother had safely arrived at Corunna. Had a letter from Aunt Esther.
Friday 16 April
Wet most of the time, though we had time for a short walk afternoon and evening. Uncle James and Auntie Tupman came to dinner and tea.
Monday 24 May
Fine day again. Monitor this week. Auntie Tupman came up here this evening; she will stay here about 5 weeks whilst Mother and 4 little ones go to Broadstairs.
Monday 23 August
Went on bicycle round to see Auntie Tupman. Stayed there, and talked, and came back to dinner. Dug potatoes in the wood, more than half rotten, rest puny. Looked at coins, and marked them most of the evening.
Saturday 30 October
Auntie, Grandma, Mr. and Mrs. Tupman, and Aunt Mag came to tea, had a nice evening together looking at books, tricks, etc. Boot-mending an expensive item.
[His cash account reads "28th, Soling boots 2/4d; 30th, Heeling shoes 1/-"].

Tuesday 8 February 1898

Lovely sunny day, with great white banks of cloud blowing over the sky like in April. A rich old lady came in to make her will today. Went up to dear old Auntie Tupman to tea, she was alone and very glad to see me, got her a (halfpenny) paper with Queen's speech in for her to read, as I had to go off at 7 in the bus with Mr. Pond. Heard (illegible first name) Flemming at Assembly Rooms at 8, he recited "Bells" and others finely, he has a good clear voice.
Thursday 28 July
Some rain in the morning which laid the dust finely for riding. Busy day at office, several purchases on the way to settlement. Went up to Auntie Tupman's to dinner, Grandma is away in London. Spain has stiff terms for peace. After tea went out with Father on bike to Limpley Stoke prayer meeting. Lamps went wrong coming back, must get them seen to before going to London. Card from Cousin "Sissie" today.
Saturday 30 July
As my birthday is tomorrow, Sunday, it is to be kept today. Father and Mother gave me a fine tennis-racquet, the boys gave me a nice walking stick and little fruit knife. Auntie Mag and Aunt Esther came up to tea, also Aunt Tupman, who gave me 2 ties. Aunt Esther gave me a nice brush and comb, and Auntie Mag a tyre brush and chamois leather, nice evening.
Monday 21 November
Very wet day, but it cleared up at teatime. Went up to Auntie Tupman's to dinner, and took her up the "Daily Mail" which much pleased her, dear old Auntie, she likes a bit of news and gossip. Went to Grandfather Clapton's to tea to get my bicycle which I had left there since last Saty. night; Edgar still there. Went to Fitzjohn's to supper, was beaten twice at bagatelle thoroughly. Breakfast, dinner, tea, and supper all at different places.
Wednesday 30 November
Cleared some more leaves in the wood before going down to the office. Went up in the bus with Mr. Pond, and had tea at Mentone with Auntie Tupman, Grandmother is away at Barnstaple. Then went down to King Edward's School prize giving, the banqueting hall at the Guild Hall was full of people, and the Marquis of Bath gave away the prizes very well. He is a fine tall man, with genial open face, and really handsome, I reckon, his wife is supposed to be very (handsome?). Norris got the Turner prize this time, but the qualifications for it are sadly debased and narrowed, I am sure. Alf Pond got a prize for Mathematics, I am sure he deserved it, as he is very pains taking.

Saturday 10 June 1899

Tomorrow is the 20th anniversary of Grandpa's wedding, so he took us all to Wroxall Manor for an outing. It is a fine old place with banqueting room of 1598. I burst a nice young lady's tyre with pumping.
Wednesday 9 August
After dinner and a lovely bathe Father, Phil and I rode off on our cycles to Starcross ferry, very hilly road, fine coasting. Crossed over to Exmouth to see Auntie Tupman but they were all out, but saw her just as we were going, so glad to see us! Train from Starcross to N. Abbott, thence home to Paignton at 10 o'clock.
Wednesday 16 August
Phil, Steve and I left here by the 10.0 train for Starcross where Mr Ed Tupman took us over in his sailing boat to Exmouth, fine rapid sail. After dinner went over to the Warren with Mr Walter Tupman for a picnic. Walked to Teignmouth by sea wall and then trained home. Searchlights flashing from navy.
