Bertram Thomas Jessop Charles Ernest Jessop Garfield Cornelius Jessop Hugh Neil Jessop Mabel Alice Jessop Lay a poppy for 2015 Leave a note Leave a tribute or memory of Garfield Cornelius Jessop Leave a note Contribute › Processing Garfield Jessop had a nephew named after him and born on April 25th 1918. He was Garfield David Black. Garfield Black had a letter from his uncle written from Egypt before going to Gallipoli. It was a beautifully written and most expressive letter written to Garfield Jessop's sister. We knew Garfield Black and his wife Nancy well. They lived all their lives in North West Bay in Pelorus Sound. On Garfield Black's 80th birthday (Apr 25th 1998) we invited him and available members of his family to a ceremony to name our little bay in North West Bay "Garfields Bay" after both Garfields. We are holding a commemoration for both men on the Anzac Centennial in the Bay.
