They had two daughters, Elisabeth (1916–2014), who married the Norwegian politician Edvard Hambro and Sophie Jane (1919-2011) who married the Cambridge scholar M.G.M. Pryor and later Charles Gurney.
Before moving, in 1920, to Vence in France, the couple were active members of an intellectual circle known as the "Neo-Pagans" centred round Rupert Brooke. They also moved on the fringes of the Bloomsbury Group, whose members included Virginia Woolf, John Maynard Keynes, Vanessa Bell and Lytton Strachey.
