Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Wendy Wood (born Gwendoline Emily Meacham) (1892-June 1981) was a well-known campaigner for Scottish independence and founder of the Scottish Patriots. An eccentric and colourful figure, she was also an artist and writer, and her antics often created controversy.Wood was born in Kent, England, before her parents moved to South Africa, where her father was a brewery manager and landscape painter, and was brought up in the latter country. Wood adopted her mother's maiden name in 1927 to emphasize her artistic connections. Her mother's father was the sculptor S.P.Wood, and his brother was the painter T.P. Wood. Her birth name was Gwendoline Meacham. If challenged as to her Scottish birthright, she would reply, 'One does not have to be a horse to be born in a stable', echoing the old proverb that is sometimes misattributed to Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington, albeit for a different purpose.
