Fred Ross and Florence Ross, known as Count and Countess Rosaire, had the son Ivor Rosaire, born on July 8, 1911, at Pontefract, Yorkshire,, dead 2005-12-24 at the age of 94. Ivor married Lucy Garner (died from Alzheimer’s Disease in 1995). Ivor and Lucy had had two children who survived, Juliette and Derrick Rosaire. He claimed he was never taught anything in his life. The only person he ever credited for influencing him in any way was Jimmy Fossett, who was the son of the original Sir Robert Fossett, the founder of Sir Robert Fossett’s Circus.

During the thirties, Ivor presented the legendary elephants Salt and Sauce, first at Circus Rosaire, and later on other circuses.
1939: Circus Rosaire acquired its own elephant, Princess Monice, which Ivor trained and worked in with the celebrated film star Sabu.
1950: He had ten of Chipperfield’s elephants in London with Tom Arnold’s Circus at Haringey Arena in 1950
1948-1954: worked an act of sixteen (at one time, a Group of five bull elephants) Chipperfield elephants.
1957-1965: Ivor worked as elephant trainer at Sir Robert Fossetts Circus
1963-1964: Ivor Rosaire and the elephants were leased by John Ringling North during Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus European Tour.


I was 16 when I met Ivor, that was 1957 in my home town of Loughborough, and last time I saw him in 1962. i spent many hours with the elephants,and felt privileged that Ivor allowed me on the inside. i felt a special bond with Carla, and was told that she was 16,which would have meant she was born 1940. she was certainly a very big girl. i took her harness off after the show.i was more wary with the others,they were Chikita, June, Nagra and Monica. It was Monica that appeared with Ivor on double your money and was the youngest.
