Snippets: The Italian Architect & Marconi in Moulsham.
Delivered to A. H. Currie at Moulsham Lodge. Chelmsford previously the lodge house to Mouslham Hall. built in 1564 & then re-designed in 1730 by the Venetian architect Giacomo Leoni for Benjamin Mildmay. the 1st Earl FitzWalter. The Mildmay family were the dominant family of the region from the mid 1500s to mid 1800s but by 1784 the Mildmay direct male line was extinct. in 1809 Moulsham Hall was demolished. The surviving Dowager FitzWalter relocated to her other seat in Dogmersfield & the family estate was sold in its entirety in 1830. In 1899 Guglielmo Marconi “The Father of Wireless” opened the world's first radio factory in a disused silk in Moulsham. A. H. Currie's father. Robert. was a gentleman dairy farmer with a prize winning herd of Friesian cattle. In 1915 he took delivery of a new Fowler-Wyles single cylinder plough - designed to appeal to those farmers who preferred their plough to be in front of them! John Fowler went on to built a monster machine capable of some 6 furrows! In the 1960s B272LJ had a journey of a life time with Andrew Ayres through East Africa – a copy of the article he wrote is with the car.
