Creators Danson family of Liverpool

Administrative history:
This collection is a rare example of a complete middle-class archive. It begins in 1779 with the apprenticeship of John Danson to a Liverpool barber and peruke-maker. John became Liverpool's leading barber and perfumer. He charged 1/- for a haircut in 1823! His son, William Danson, became rather an unsuccessful lawyer. Grandson, John Towne Danson, with whom the bulk of the archive begins had four distinct careers - journalist under Dickens at the office of the Daily News, editor (briefly) of the Globe, farmer, barrister, marine insurance underwriter. He was born in 1817, and from about 1852 until his death in 1898, kept copies of all his letters. He kept original letters received, too, of course! He kept a diary, accounts, day books, all bills, took photographs and sketched. He was interested in every issue - philosophy, economics, statistics, politics and science. His first book was a joint effort, The Inventor's Manual, 1843. Other titles followed: The Wealth of Households, reprinted by Oxford University Press in 1886, Our Commerce in War, Our Next War and a heavy share in the compilation of Reverend John Owen's The Sceptics of Renaissance, along with a continuous stream of pamphlets and articles. Like the typical Victorian, he loved to moralise; he occupied every minute in 'profitable' mental or physical activity, and sought to leave a full record of it all to posterity.
His son, Francis, by his local political and professional activity (as an average adjuster), along with consistent patronage of Liverpool University, the School of Tropical Medicine, the Institute of Archaeology and other good causes achieved much greater popularity. He was knighted on account of his work for the Admiralty in the First World War. His famous collection of antiquities has come to the National Museums Liverpool by bequest.
Much significant material relating to journeys abroad or residence abroad by members of the family has been found, including Australia, Burma, Canada, Middle East (1st World War and Egypt), France, Germany and Italy and the Low Countries.
John Towne Danson, son of an unsuccessful lawyer, was brought up in Liverpool, with strong seafaring connections on his mother's side. His uncle, James Towne, was the Captain of an African trader, owned by Sir John Tobin. He went to London to seek his fortune and had four distinct careers - journalist under Dickens at the office of the Daily News (and editor (briefly) of the Globe), farmer, barrister, marine insurance underwriter.
In 1859 he wrote a pamphlet which showed that Liverpool handled 50% in value of Britain's exports, and that some 4,451,000 tons of shipping had used the port in 1858-59. This made Liverpool unquestionably the world's greatest port, yet the local marine underwriting market was quite inadequate. Danson therefore proposed the formation of a joint stock marine insurance company. Thus on 23 June 1860, the first provincial joint stock Marine Insurance Company was set up in Liverpool, styled 'The Thames & Mersey Marine Insurance Company', with separate boards for Liverpool (the biggest), London and Manchester. J.T. Danson was appointed Secretary. In 1866 he became its underwriter, only to retire in 1880, in disgust at the growing practice of dealing with brokers. His second home, Dry Close in Grasmere, became his main residence, and there the archives accumulated
He was extremely versatile, interested in philosophy, economics, statistics, politics, archaeology and science. His first book, a joint effort, entitled The Inventor's Manual (1843), was followed by The Wealth of Households (reprinted by Oxford University Press in 1886), Our Commerce in War, Our Next War and a considerable share in John Owen's The Sceptics of the Renaissance, along with a continuous stream of pamphlets and articles. As a typical Victorian, he loved to moralise; he occupied every minute in 'profitable' mental or physical activity, and sought to leave a full record of it all to posterity.
Though 'autocratic, argumentative and dogmatic' according to the official history of the company, he had an amazing grasp of facts and figures. He was occasionally wrong, as where he prophesied the downfall of Lloyds
The family archives are, not surprisingly, vast - a unique mirror of the Victorian era and are held by the Archives Department. They contain very many items of maritime and social interest.
SIR FRANCIS DANSON Kt. (1855-1926)
Sir Francis Chatillon Danson was an original member of the University Court and Council from 1903, and Deputy Treasurer from 1903-1914. From 1902 he was a member of Committee of the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, becoming Chairman in 1913, retaining this office till his death. He was also Chairman of the Governors of the Liverpool Institute Schools, a Governor of Sedbergh School, a keen member of the Committee of the University Institute of Archaeology, as well as being President of the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce, 1896-99, Chairman of Birkenhead Conservative Party, 1896-1904, a J.P., serving from 1909 on the Mersey Docks and Harbour Board (being Chairman of the Finance Committee from 1914 on), Chairman of the Liverpool Shipwreck & Humane Society and President of the Liverpool Philomathic Society, 1913-14. In between a full-time career as head of the firm which he himself founded in 1879, F.C. Danson & Co., probably Liverpool's leading firm of Average Adjusters, he found time to serve on the Admiralty Transport Arbitration Board from 1914, and as Government Representative on the Liverpool and London War Risks Association from 1915 and to be a member of the International Law Association. He was also an active member and sometime Chairman of his own national professional association, as well as of the Liverpool Association of Average Adjusters which existed from 1882 to 1916. He was knighted in 1920.
Sir Francis was only 71 when he died. He was never able to retire from business owing to the large number of claims dating back to the 1914-18 War. He was clearly a man with many times the mental and physical energy of most men. Yet 'his active, cheery and kindly disposition endeared him to all', said the Chairman of the Dock Board, on the news of his death.
Sir Francis had always been a worker. So hard had he worked at business prior to 1898, when he took his first partner, that he had a complete nervous breakdown. Advised by his doctors to take a complete rest, he merely changed the emphasis of his activities. From this period dates his wider involvement in public work and his lifelong interest in antiquities and archaeology. His recuperative trip to Egypt is well covered by the archives. The ephemera of his voyage down the Nile include bills from Shepherd's Hotel, Cairo, and the card of Ahmed Whaba, 'Drogman and Contractor for Cairo, up the Nile, Syria and Palestine'. From this point on he found release in building the extremely fine collection of Egyptian and classical antiquities which have now joined the collections in the Antiquities Department of the National Museums Liverpool.
Sir Francis' own letters survive in 11 wet - copy letter - books covering 1884-1911 and 1925-1926. Letters received date from 1872 - the first item being a letter of advice from his father, J.T. Danson, which has been favourably compared to that of Lord Chesterfield! From 1890 the series is almost continuous, containing over 6,000 letters. Some distinct bundles are labelled 'Association of Average Adjusters', 'Chamber of Commerce' and 'Archaeology'. An index has been compiled. Among the correspondents are Professors Sir William Mitchell Banks (Anatomy); D.B. Blacklock (Tropical Diseases of Africa, Parasitology, Tropical Hygiene); R.C. Bosanquet (Classical Archaeology); A.B. Boswell (Russian History, Language and Literature); Sir Rubert Boyce (Pathology, Dean of School of Tropical Medicine, 1899-1911); F.S. Carey (Mathematics); Richard Caton (Physiology); Sir Alfred Dale (last Principal of the University College and first Vice-Chancellor of the University); John Garstang (Methods and practice of Archaeology); Ernest E. Glynn (Pathology); R. Harvey Gibson (Botany); P. Hebblethwaite (Registrar); Sir William A. Herdman (Natural History, Oceanography); E.W. Hope (Hygiene); Sir Oliver Lodge (Physics); Kuno Meyer (Teutonic Languages, Celtic); Ramsay Muir (Modern History); Sir John L. Myres (Greek); R. Newstead (Entomology); Bernard Pares (Russian History, Language and Literature); A.M. Paterson (Anatomy); Sir Charles Reilly (Architecture); Sir Ronald Ross (Tropical Medicine and Sanitation); Sir Charles Sherrington (Physiology); J.M.W. Stephens (Tropical Medicine); J.A. Twemlow (School of Local History and Records); W.O. Williams (Veterinary Medicine); Warrington Yorke (Parasitology, Tropical Medicine); also the second Vice-Chancellor, Dr. J.G. Adami; Pro-Chancellor, T.W. Alsop; Pro-Chancellor, Sir Edward Lawrence; Registrar, Dr. E. Londini and Mr. Keith W. Monsarrat (Dean of Faculty of medicine). Letters from University benefactors include those of Robert Gladstone, Treasurer of University College; Sir Alfred Lewis Jones of West Africa and Canary Islands (bananas) fame; Sir W.H. Lever (later Lord Leverhulme); John Rankin and Pro-Chancellor, H.R. Rathbone.
The correspondence relating to archaeology and the School of Tropical Medicine is especially useful, as one would expect, since they were Sir Francis' major interests.
Professor Garstang was clearly a family friend. He writes from the excavations camp at Abydos, Upper Egypt in January 1908:
Dear Mr. Danson,
Forgive some delay in writing our doings. You will know that I have been very much howbeit pleasantly occupied in making things agreeable here for my wife. She is as happy as can be & taking to an energetic English Life with much enjoyment. Our latest achievement has been to construct a tennis court which promises to be ready in about 5 days time. We are hoping that when it is marked the rain will not come & wash out the lines, & with some probability of the hope being fulfilled - at the moment it is midday with a tremendous sunlight & warmth pouring down. The paper is curling up as I write
Our marriage went off alright, it seems a long while back now, & almost too late to thank you again for your good wishes. I thought to escape the sorrowing relatives by having the ceremony at Marseilles, but 17 of them arrived by train from Toulouse. I must say they were all very nice..... She hasn't made much progress with English for except when we have English visitors or callers she rarely hears the language spoken. But I have no doubt she will soon pick it up. Enclosed photos taken when Mr. & Mrs. Russell Rea & niece called, we made a picnic into the high desert.
Our excavations are going well. We have a few choice objects already, mostly small, a stone statue, some beautiful scarabs, a censor, some bronze, ivory sphinx & wot not. I am going to propose an exhibition at Liverpool if we can find room at the Institute.
Next month I hope to go to Luxor & get you some vases.
With kindest greetings to all,
Yours very truly,
John Garstang
The correspondence as a whole reflects vividly, the many commitments of Sir Francis and leaves one with a feeling or breathlessness. His political activity coincided with the rise to power of Sir Archibald Salvidge, probably Liverpool's greatest political 'boss' of any party. A number of letters from Salvidge are present. The M.P. for Birkenhead sponsored by Sir Francis, Sir Elliott Lees, Bt., achieved some notoriety by representing his constituency while fighting in the Boer War. The letters of Sir Elliott are valuable source material regarding the War. Sir Francis was also a pioneer motorist, hence the considerable correspondence with early motor companies.
Sir Francis' two sons left no issue. Rudolph was killed at the Dardanelles in 1915. Raymond, b.1893, a confirmed bachelor, died in 1976 aged 82. The School of Tropical Medicine was one of the three residuary legatees of his estate, the others being the Old Sedberghians Trust Fund and Trinity College, Oxford, which received his magnificent library, including Caxton first editions. He served with some distinction in both World Wars, earning the M.C. in the 1st and as Lieutenant Colonel, commanding the Fourth Battalion Cheshire Regiment at Dunkirk in the 2nd. Not only letters but an interesting variety of other military documents and relics are in the Colonel's section of the archives. Other documents relate to the study and exhibition of the antiquities his father and he collected.
He continued his father's patronage of the School of Tropical Medicine, becoming its Chairman and giving some £20,000 towards a new clinic (which he intended to be an anonymous gift!). In 1953 he retired, aged 60 and also retreated to Dry Close, the house at Grasmere, which his grandfather had built when he retired in 1880. There among the books and antiquities, which had all been moved in 1940 or thereabouts from the family house, 'Rosewarne', in Bidston Road, Birkenhead (now an old people's home), when it was sold, the Colonel devoted himself mainly to his world-renowned collection of Egyptian and Sudanese stamps. Numerous letters have been preserved relating to this activity.

Letter from E.C. Danson, to F.C. Danson - 2 June 1898:
In reply to a letter dated 22 April E.C.D. sets out details of an argument between his brother (F.C.D.'s father) and Mr. (Joseph) Chamberlain, the outcome of which had been favourable to his brother (however, not before his brother's death). E.C.D. expresses the opinion that the new bridge which F.C.D. is planning, will be one of the most impressive structures of its kind to be erected in modern times. E.C.D. then expresses his admiration for Nelson and some regret that Nelson's victories included the loss of many valuable lives (Nelson's own included). He expresses the hope that F.C.D.'s bridge will open triumphantly and cites Bacon's view of good roads and bridges facilitating the rapid transport of men and merchandise from one part of the kingdom to another. He states that F.C.D.'s bridge will mark a distinct era in the history of commerce. E.C.D. then comments on the American-Spanish war and is rather disparaging towards both sides ("the Spaniards hide themselves and don't want to be found, and the Yankees look for them but don't want to find them").
E.C.D. encloses a P.S. in which he expresses his pleasure in the fact that F.C.D.'s brother has adopted his name (Edward) for one of his boys.
Letter from Superintendent of New South Wales Police Department (Walter C. Casey), to F.C. Danson - dated 9 September 1898:
Tells the death of E.C.D. at Bective near Tamworth (N.S.W.) on the 6 September 1898. A Coroner's inquiry found that death was from natural causes. The deceased had grown steadily more infirm over the previous two years and had suffered an attack of influenza, a fortnight before his death. He was buried in the Church of England Cemetery, Tamworth on 8 September. His property was handed over to the Curator of Interstate Estates.
Letter from Bank of New South Wales, to F.C. Danson - dated 12 September 1898:
Encloses a newspaper cutting detailing the Coroner's inquiry into the death of E.C.D. Letter states that at the time of his death, E.C.D.'s balance with the bank stood at £77.
Letter from Bank of New South Wales, London Branch, to F.C. Danson - dated 18 October 1898:
Instructs F.C.D. that the Power of Attorney be made out to the Manager of the Bank of New South Wales, Tamworth (believed to be George Morrison).
Letter from Hill, Dickinson, Dickinson and Hill (10 Water Street, Liverpool), to F.C. Danson - dated 25 October 1898:
Encloses a Power of Attorney. States that F.C.D.'s signature to the Power of Attorney and to the Declaration will have to be attested by a Commissioner - this being done they should be sent to the Bank Manager (N.S.W.) asking him to administer the estate. The name of the Superintendent of Police has been inserted into the Power of Attorney because of doubt as to the name of the Bank Manager and the legality of appointing an unnamed manager.
Power of Attorney sets out F.C.D.'s relationship to the deceased and appoints George Morrison of the Bank of N.S.W., or failing him, Walter C. Casey (Superintendent of Police for Tamworth) as lawful attorney for the administration of E.C.D.'s estate.
Letter from W.F. Tribe, Solicitor, Tamworth, to the Curator of Intestate Estates in Sydney - dated 30 November 1898:
An enquiry as to the position of E.C.D.'s estate - W.F. Tribe acting on behalf of G. Morrison who is the Attorney of F.C.D.
Encloses the original Power of Attorney and a Declaration by F.C. Ros to his life with the deceased.
Letter from J.W. Garrett, Registrar of Probates and Curator of Intestates, Estates' Office, Sydney, to W.F. Tribe - dated 8 December 1898:
J.W. Garrett instructs W.F. Tribe that he has gathered together E.C.D.'s estate and now holds the sum of £75.11s.0d. as well as several items of personal property; less £12.10s.0d. owing to Creditors. The estate cannot be distributed until 20 January 1899 (three months after the expiry date of advertisement to creditors). An application by F.C.D. may then be made.
Letter from G. Morrison (Bank of N.S.W.) to F.C. Danson - dated 12 December 1898:
George Morrison states his willingness to act on behalf of F.C.D. He encloses copies of correspondence between his solicitor (W.F. Tribe) and the Curator of Intestate Estates.
Letter from G. Morrison (Bank of N.S.W.), to F.C. Danson - dated 21 January 1899
George Morrison expresses doubt as to whether or not the Court in N.S.W. will grant administration of the estate to him on the Power of Attorney. Morrison, therefore, felt it best to refer the matter to the Curator of Intestate Estates. Encloses copies of the correspondence pertaining to the situation:
Copy of letter from W.F. Tribe, to the Curator of Intestate Estates - dated 6 January 1899:
W.F. Tribe states that as the situation stands, F.C.D. may only obtain his own share of the estate and that the other next of kin must apply for their own shares separately - two of the next of kin are out of England and it would mean a long delay and expense to get Powers of Attorney for them.
Copy of letter from P.W. Garrett (Curator of Intestate Estates), to W.F. Tribe - dated 11 January 1899:
P.W. Garrett informs W.F. Tribe that the share of F.C.D. will be paid under an Order of Court upon petition and that a further Power of Attorney will be required from the other next of kin before their shares can be obtained.
Copy of letter from W.F. Tribe, to George Morrison - dated 19 January 1899:
W.F. Tribe suggests that the best way of getting over the difficulty would be for the other next of kin to give Morrison a similar Power of Attorney (to F.C.D.) thus enabling him to receive all of the assets of the estate.
Letter from W.F. Tribe, to the Curator of Intestate Estates - dated 23 January 1899:
W.F. Tribe requests that the Curator keeps the estate intact and the books and accounts in order, so that there may be no delay in administering the estate once the other next of kin send authority.
Letter from George Morrison, to F.C. Danson - dated 11 May 1899:
George Morrison informs F.C.D. that he has received Power of Attorney from F.C.D.'s brother and that he is now only awaiting that of F.C.D.'s sisters.
Letter from George Morrison, to F.C. Danson - dated 5 June 1899:
George Morrison informs F.C.D. that he has received Power of Attorney from F.C.D.'s sisters. The petition for the assets of the estate has therefore gone to the Curator of Intestate Estates. Morrison asks F.C.D. to advise him as to how much is to be spent on a headstone for the grave of E.C.D.
Letter from George Morrison, to F.C. Danson - dated 3 July 1899:
George Morrison informs F.C.D. that he has forwarded a packet containing jewellery and a box containing books and papers, all of which had belonged to E.C.D.
Letter from George Morrison, to F.C. Danson - dated 17 July 1899:
George Morrison informs F.C.D. that due to the delay in the settlement of E.C.D.'s estate, he felt it necessary to send his solicitor (W.F. Tribe) to Sydney to bring matters to a conclusion. The expenses for this trip to be charged to the estate of E.C.D. Morrison assures F.C.D. that this is money well spent and that every effort has been made to keep costs down. He encloses a statement of account pertaining to the estate.

Letter from Mary Witton, to F.C. Danson - dated 19 April 1899:
Mary Witton tells F.C.D. of the manner of his uncle's death. E.C.D. contracted influenza around 25 August (1898). E.C.D. would not have a doctor on the grounds that it would do him no good and he was not prepared to pay £10 for a doctor "just to stand in the room and do him no good". He was looked after by Mary Witton and offered her a sum of money to aid her. However, E.C.D. was too ill to write a cheque and suggested that she obtain the money from his nephew (F.C.D.). Mary Witton expresses her initial reluctance to do this due to the possibility of E.C.D.'s nephew disbelieving her story. She states that she too has been ill and was, therefore, unable to write earlier than she did. She had received £4 from the government (Australia) but had been forced to spend it all on medical treatment (for her eyes) including a four month stay in hospital. E.C.D. died on 6 September (1898) and was examined by a Coroner who declared that death was from natural causes. Mary Witton ends by declaring that the smallest donation F.C.D. could send would be "thoughtfully received".
Receipt for payment of money for headstone sent by George Aslin to monumental mason for payment of sum owing on E.C.D.'s gravestone - dated
1 September 1899.
Receipt for burial ground fees. Receipt sent by the Wardens of St. Paul's Church - dated 31 August 1899.
Sum owing - £1.
Letter from George Morrison, to F. C. Danson - dated 18 September 1899:
Morrison encloses a final statement of account, together with the receipts for the headstone and grave. Morrison apologises for not having done this sooner and explains that this is due to his having been ill (influenza).

Letter from E.C. Danson, to F.C. Danson - dated 23 March 1896:
E.C.D. praises the virtues of F.C.D.'s father (also E.C.D.'s brother), a man to whom a deed of dishonesty would have been a "moral impossibility". E.C.D. expresses his regret that he is unable to make an adequate mention of the "goodness" that F.C.D. has already bestowed upon him. He goes on to mention that remittances which were sent to him quarterly are now (at his own suggestion) to be sent to him half-yearly.
E.C.D. encloses a list of books which had been destroyed by fire some years ago (and which he presumably wishes to acquire again). He also expresses his wish to acquire the books of George Elliott.
Letter from E.G. Danson, to F.C. Danson - dated 20 October 1897:
E.C.D. acknowledges receipt of a letter from F.C.D, (dated 10 September 1897) in which F.C.D. had expressed his thanks for receipt of the Herald (newspaper or magazine?). E.C.D. states that, any thanks between them are due from him to F.C.D. and that he feels hopelessly indebted to F.C.D. and his (F.C.D.'s) father.
E.C.D. expresses the hope that F.C.D. will never forget his "old uncle" but would not gain the same amount of pleasure from F.C.D.'s correspondence if it caused F.C.D. to neglect the important affairs that have been committed to his charge.
F.C.D.'s brother is intending to visit E.C.D. and E.C.D. states that it would be best if F.C.D.'s brother was to write and inform him of his intended date of arrival so that he could arrange to meet him (thus saving a good deal of trouble and expense).
Letter from E.C. Danson, to F.C.Danson - dated 4 March 1898:
E.C.D. acknowledges receipt of a letter from F.C.D. (dated 2 January 1898) and two newspapers, Liverpool Courier and London Daily Graphic.
Letter from E.C. Danson, to F.C. Danson - dated 8 March 1898:
E.C.D. replies to a letter from F.C.D. which told him of the death of his brother (F.C.D.'s father). E.C.D. had been greatly shocked to hear this as there had been no previous indication of his brother being ill. In the last letter that E.C.D. received from his brother, it had told of his brother's reluctance to travel to Liverpool for a meeting; partly due to the distance and cold weather and partly because of a disagreement between himself and a Mr. Chamberlain and the possible unpleasantness that would result if they were to meet.
E.C.D. likens his brother's death to the fall of a "noble tower" and states that his brother will long be remembered for his integrity, keen intelligence, penetration and insight of the ways and doings of men. He asks F.C.D. to remember him to the rest of the family and sends his deepest sympathy.
Letter from E.C. Danson, to F.C. Danson - dated 9 April 1898:
E.C.D. tells of how he received a note from A. & E. Rudden & Co., forwarding agents to the.......... Steam Ship Co. of New Zealand, saying that they had a parcel for him. E.C.D. replied, stating his full and accurate address, and requesting to know the amount owing on the parcel. He received a reply telling him the amount due (5/6d.) and that the parcel had been sent to the address furnished by him in his letter. Repeated enquiries to the railway station, however, received the reply that there was no such parcel. E.C.D. discovered that the parcel had been sent to East Tamworth Railway Station as opposed to West Tamworth Railway Station (as requested by E.C.D. ). He blames this on the "inability" of people to recognise the name Danson or to write it legibly. The parcel was found to contain a book entitled, The Life and Work of Sir Anthony Van Wych (Flemish painter who resided in England in the days of Charles I and II). E.C.D. reflects on the great kindness of F.C.D.'s father is sending him such a present when "on the brink of death". He states that genius has been described as the unlimited capacity for taking pains but that F.C.D.'s father had something superior - the unlimited capacity for doing what is good and right on all occasions.
Letter from E.C. Danson to F.C. Danson - dated 2 May 1898:
E.C.D. is replying immediately to a letter from F.C.D. (dated 24 March 1898) due to it being of business importance.

Lockett Trust  D/D/VIII  [n.d.]

Related information: For genealogical notes re the Lockett Family, see D/D/III/4/3/1.

Administrative history:
The archives relating to the Lockett Trust consisted of often random bundles and much loose material. A policy of breaking bundles was pursued where necessary to facilitate the process of listing. The distinction found in the list between "original bundles" and "bundles" is that the latter are attempts to make the material more homogeneous with regard to content and chronology.
E.W. Jacques became the business manager of J.G.E. Lockett in 1836, they had been school friends. In this role, he visited J.G.E. Lockett's step-mother, Eleanor Lockett, and used his influence to be nominated as co-trustee of her estate. After the death of Eleanor Lockett and J.G.E. Lockett's wife, Jacques attempted to marry J.G.E. Lockett's daughter, Anne Eleanor, who refused.
To force Anne to marry him, Jacques planned to financially embarrass J.G.E. Lockett. Thus, he lent him £800 from the estate of Eleanor Lockett, insured his life for £2,000 and took out mortgages on property in Old Compton Street and Queen Street.
J.T. Danson in 1852 met, and fell in love with Anne Eleanor. She told him the plans of Jacques and J.T.D. uncovered his dealings. The case involves the claims of Elizabeth Mary Lockett and Emma Marian Lockett, daughters of J.G.E. Lockett, on the estate of Eleanor Lockett. Jacques himself agreed in 1853 to give up all claims on the estate in return for £220, but the claims of other inheritors of the estate, and disputes over costs, prolonged the case.

The Lockett estate, after the death of Eleanor Lockett (1847), consisted of property in London and Llangollen; houses in Clipstone Street, Great Titchfield Street, Upper Marylebone Street, Charlton Street, Old Compton Street and Queen Street in London. Pen-y-Bryn, a house, land surrounding and a brewery in Llangollen. Plans of the London properties can be found in 2/1 and of Pen-y-Bryn in 2/43.
Of particular interest in this section of the collection are the items relating to railway safety (1/2/3), emigration to Australia (1/2/5 and 3/3/2), Pen-y-Bryn, and Llangollen Breweries (2/42 and 2/45), J.T.D.'s honeymoon (3/3/3) and surgical instruments (5/1).
