I was originally asked to write a short article for a famous Yorkshire newspaper in the year 2020, which was highlighting the 25th anniversary of the death of the Yorkshire vet Donald Sinclair in the year 1995. Donald is referred to in the books by James Herriot as (Siegfried Farnon). However, when I started tapping away at my keyboard, I suddenly realized that this was a much bigger story than a short article, so it evolved and took on a life of its own, which in turn developed into this narrative and biography that you are reading today.

About the Author

Geoffrey Hebdon was born and brought up in Lancashire, England, in the heart and region of the cotton industry. After leaving college, having studied textile engineering, he embarked on the vocation of education, including lecturing, teaching and evangelical work. He and his wife Pauline lived and served in various parts of the United Kingdom, including Scotland, Yorkshire, Lancashire, Cheshire, Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire.

After starting a family in the 1970s Geoffrey and his wife Pauline decided to relocate to Southern Africa and for almost 30 years were based in Cape Town. While working there, Geoffrey; a dedicated educationalist, along with a business partner, decided to open a private academy with campuses in Bellville, the northern suburbs of Cape Town, and in Central Cape Town, with plans to open a third campus in the African township of Khayelitsha in the Western Cape, to offer career training courses, including, business management, computers, travel and tourism, journalism, plus health & beauty. This private academy later expanded its scope to the more disadvantaged students of Southern and Eastern Africa, with the help of the Department of Education plus generous private subsidies and sponsorships.

In 2000, Geoffrey and his wife Pauline relocated their family to the United States of America and lived in Salt Lake City, Utah, for eight years before moving to the Los Angeles area of California, and later to Portland in Oregon. Even though he is semi-retired, Geoffrey is still involved with research, reporting and writing. The editor whose ancestors on the paternal side of his family originated from Yorkshire, so he is adequately and competently qualified to edit this narrative, as the Yorkshire genes are still in his blood.
