See website of the college:
http://www.cliftoncollegeuk.com/
See also a page describing Watson's House:
http://www.cliftoncollegeuk.com/upper/pupilcare/houses/wah/
Information on a previous version of that webpage described how Watson's House was founded in 1878 by Reverend H.C.Watson and the House lived at 30 College Road, moving in 2004 to new premises.

According to Percival Serle, it was understood that his grandmother Emily's father John Watson had a brother, the Rev Charles Watson, who was a master at Clifton College (Gloucestershire), but this research shows a more distant relationship, that Henry Charles Watson was a grandson of Emily's uncle. The wider family appear to have been very close and to have relied on Rev Henry Charles to be the family executor.
