The family was happy to be back in England, though the boys found their activities curtailed at first “on account of want of Frank clothing”. Lane's precarious health admitted no possibility of living in London again, and with the weather turning colder. He was anxious to return to Hastings, whose climate had benefited him in the past. He and Nefeeseh arrived there on the first day of December, while Sophia and the boys followed a short while later. This may have been one of Lane's few journeys by train, for although the Hastings rail station was not yet open, the one at nearby West Marina had operated for several years. In mid-January 1850, not long after Lane moved to Hastings, another of his nephews, Richard's son Edward (Ned) Theophilus, died at age twenty following a severe case of typhus.
