His official (summer) residence was Mountain Lodge. In 1921 he married author Bella Sidney Woolf (1877–1960), whom he met through her (later) more famous brother Leonard Woolf, when the two men were colleagues in Ceylon. In 1904, then a humble 'Office Assistant', Southorn had met Leonard Woolf on his arrival in Ceylon from England. In 1936, he was made Governor of The Gambia, notably describing the colony as "a geographical and economic absurdity".
