Marjorie Mowlam Marjorie Mowlam, politician, born September 18 1949; died August 19 2005 - the family name dates back to the Domesday Book - was born in Watford, Hertfordshire, the second of three children. Her father Frank was a romantic, charming, thwarted man, an only child who had passed the grammar school examination, but was instead obliged to follow his father into a career in the Post Office. He rose to become Coventry's assistant postmaster.

Her mother, Tina, was shrewd and determined, as she needed to be to keep the family together in the difficulties they faced during her husband's descent into alcoholism. She worked as a telephonist to maintain the family income.

It always seemed as if Marjorie was the most favoured child. Alone among her siblings, she passed the 11 plus examination and started at Chiswick Girls' grammar in West London, near the family home in Southall. She then went to one of the earliest comprehensive schools, Coundon Court in Coventry, and, although never excessively academic, worked hard, partly because she used this at home as an excuse to escape the domestic travails. At school she trailed glory as a member of the county hockey team, as a school athlete, a member of the debating team, the lead in the school play and eventually head girl.
