In her memoir of her early years, Pigtails and Pernod (1961), Simona Pakenham recalled life in the large British colony which “had come to look upon Dieppe as their own property in a way which must have been surprising to its French inhabitants”. The family in Dieppe included Simona’s great uncle Frederick Fairbanks, who, though he had never visited America, managed, by spending his 21st birthday in the American embassy in Paris, to establish a claim to American citizenship and a job in its consular service. In Dieppe he lived in a grand consular villa and became the figurehead of the British colony, his only concession to his adopted nationality being the cultivation of a strange “American” accent.
