Biographical / Historical

Theodora Eyton-Jones (c. 1890-1975) was born in China, the daughter of a missionary. In 1930 she undertook a visit to the Patriarchs of the Eastern Churches, which she described in her book 'Under eastern roofs' (1931). She married the Revd Leonard Patterson, and after his death adopted the name 'Eyton-Patterson', although she used her maiden name for writing.
