     Capt Frederick John Crosby Halahan was born on 21 June 1900 in Cuckfield, Sussex. He was the son of Samuel Crosby Halahan and Maud Ethel Galton.

     Capt Frederick John Crosby Halahan was recorded on the 1911 census in Stubbington House nr Fareham, Wickham, Hampshire. He was at school aged 10.
     Frederick served in the Royal Navy was awarded a DSC between 1916 and 1918.
     Capt Frederick John Crosby Halahan and Agatha Katherine Rose Close were engaged on 18 October 1921.
Capt Frederick John Crosby Halahan married Agatha Katherine Rose Close on 25 March 1922. Capt Frederick John Crosby Halahan lived with Samuel Crosby Halahan and Maud Ethel Galton in 1929 in Littlecroft, Chiddingfold, Surrey. Capt Frederick John Crosby Halahan lived with Samuel Crosby Halahan and Maud Ethel Galton in 1931 in Chiddingfold, Surrey. Capt Frederick John Crosby Halahan and Agatha Katherine Rose Close were divorced in 1949.
Capt Frederick John Crosby Halahan married secondly Jane Vivian Constance Stuchbury on 7 February 1950 in Hong Kong, China.
In 1974 he was mentioned in a letter from Werner ott to Lord Mountbatten. Now to Commander or rather Captain Halahan RN ret. I think his initials are F.C. Of F for Frederick I am sure. After the war he was sent to Hongkong, which he did not like. Therefore he was prepared to accept the British Government's offer to be one of the volunteer farmers breaking the ground for the fertilisation of the high plain in Central Kenya. This met with a huge success, also for Halahan who came from a farming family in England. And I as one who grew up as a boy in the then German colony of East Africa, who has followed colonial history with great interest and who has had in 1962 and 1963 a chance to talk with the emerging new African leaders (most of whom are still in office) on the white man's achievement in Africa am willing to confirm that these large British farms were a magnificent achievement of a bunch of hard-working British experts. They all had become prosperous farmers when the end of the British Empire came and they felt deserted by the British Government in London. When I saw Halahan and his wife in November 1963 they were very pessimistic about the outlook. They doubted whether they could sell the farm and were thinking of going to South Africa. I have written three times in 1964 without any reaction, but I am sure that postal services were no longer up to standards and the Halahan farm was remotely situated on the slopes of Mount Elgin. "If the worst comes to the worst", said Halahan, "I have at least a naval captain's pension to fall back on". The Halahans had 2 boys about 10 and 11 years old in 63
Mountbatten responded:
I was also interested to hear about my old friend, Halahan, whom I haven’t seen for a long while and as he did not come to our 60th anniversary dinner of our Term which entered the Royal Naval College, Osborne, in May 1913, I rather fear be may not be alive..
     Frederick died on 30 November 1963 in Kitale, Kenya, aged 63.
     His will was proved on 8 February 1966. Frederick John Crosby Halahan of Kitali, Trans Nzoia district Kenya, died 30 Nov 1963. Porbate Eldorat to Jane Vivienne Constance Halahan. £564 in England.
