Paul Amyand Napier Haggard was the second child of British diplomat Sir Godfrey Digby Napier Haggard and his French Canadian/American wife Georgianna Marie Ruel Haggard. His father was posted to Guatemala when Paul was conceived. His mother Georgianna made the decision to give birth to her child in Somersworth, New Hampshire, where she and her family had settled about 1893 after immigrating to the United States from the province of Québec. So, Georgianna and her one year old son Stephen Hubert Avenel Haggard made the trip from Guatemala to New Hampshire in the spring of 1912. Less than two months after their arrival, Georgianna gave birth to Paul in Somersworth. However, my cousin Paul died in Somersworth the following year, and was interred in Mount Calvary Cemetery.

In addition to his brother Stephen, Paul had two sisters. The first was Joan Marcia Geraldine Haggard who went on to marry diplomat/environmentalist/ornithologist Gerard Thomas Corley Smith. The youngest child of the family was Virginia Haggard, the artist/photographer/author who wrote "My Life With Chagall," which described her seven year romance with famed artist Marc Chagall.

Primary sources include Paul's headstone in Mount Calvary Cemetery, passenger lists, and my family copy of the 1942 Généalogie de la Famille Goulet-Ruel.
