Charles Amherst Robertson took delivery of 182GY at the family home of Castle Bar House in Ealing. This very grand house has also been known as Castle Bear. Castle Beare & Castle Hill House – earlier occupiers have included Mr & Mrs Thomas Smith (1790s) whose miniature portrait was painted in 1797 by B Pym; in 1814 Thomas' daughter Elizabeth married the brewer Sir Henry Meux (1770/1841). Two of Elizabeth & Thomas' daughters married into the nobility - becoming Lady Marianne Bowyer-Smith & Lady Emma Malden with their brother Henry (1818/83) marrying Lady Louisa Bruce. By 1871 Castle Bar House was home to Charles Thomas Amherst (Jeweller) & his family – his daughter Lucy Ann Amherst was Charles's mother. Scions of the Amherst family include the Franciscan Friar known as Father Algy & Charles Amherst Villiers the automotive engineer who developed the super-charger & designed the land speed car “Blue Bird” for Malcolm Campbell. Charles Villiers who lived in Ealing. was a close friend of Ian Fleming & in Casino Royale. Bond drives a 4 ½ litre Bentley with the Amherst-Villiers supercharger! It would appear from the Log book that in 1936 ownership of 182GY was transferred to Mrs Sarah Robertson – perhaps Charles had died? Sarah Robertson herself passed away in May 1964 & September of that year. Castle Bar & its' contents of paintings. prints. silver. books & furniture. after having been within the family for 100 years was put up for auction. it was later demolished.
