A few points arise from the previous post of an appeal by Paul John Wright Paul John Wright 26th April 1989 Court of Appeal , which may be worthy of further research.
Wright was a former Head of Slindon College. He had previously been acquitted, together with his co-accused Hamilton-Byrne and Dawson, on the only surviving conspiracy charge.
Another child abuser Keith Cavendish-Coulson also taught at Slindon College Paedophile teacher from top private school jailed for sexually abusing boys as young as 9 
I have not done the research necessary to see if they are related, but any information would be welcomed, particularly the first name of Hamilton-Byrne, the co defendant, whether he was a teacher at Slindon College and any links of Anne Hamilton Byrne to England.
Anne Hamilton-Byrne acquired fourteen infants and young children between about 1968 and 1975. Some were the natural children of members of The Family; others had been obtained through irregular adoptions arranged by lawyers, doctors and social workers within the group who could bypass the normal processes. The children’s identities were changed using false birth certificates or deed poll, all being given the surname ‘Hamilton-Byrne’ and dressed alike even to the extent of their hair being dyed uniformly blonde. 
The children were frequently dosed with the psychiatric drugs Anatensol, Diazepam, Haloperidol, Largactil, Mogadon, Serepax, Stelazine, Tegretol or Tofranil. On reaching adolescence they were compelled to undergo an initiation involving LSD: while under the influence of the drug the child would be left in a dark room, alone, apart from visits by Hamilton-Byrne or one of the psychiatrists from the group. 
“They were doctors who wrote out the prescriptions that controlled us; lawyers, who wrote out the Deed Polls that were needed to forge passports and birth certificates that created our false identities; social workers, who allowed Anne to by-pass normal channels to allow her to adopt, or simply steal in some instances, sixteen children; doctors and nurses who gave her contacts with rich dying people who then left their estates to her. It was the same doctors who signed their death certificates; psychiatrists who had people committed to Newhaven – the Family owned psychiatric hospital; and doctors and nurses who supervised the abuse of LSD,( which for a while they actually obtained free of charge from the Swiss drug company, Sandoz). 
It was also sect doctors who prescribed all the drugs she used to control and sedate people, because without drugs Anne’s power would have been diminished enormously. I can’t believe these educated people couldn’t have seen through Anne” 
- the use and abuse of drugs on children
- the use of irregular adoptions arranged by lawyers, doctors and social workers who could bypass the normal processes and who could also change the children’s identities using false birth certificates or deed poll
