Snippets: Wood Merchants and Estate Agents:
Ordered by Sir Arthur Cory-White and registered at two of his homes - Norcott Hill & The Golden Parsonage (leased from the Halsey family) both in Hertfordshire. Sir A. Cory-Wright was a keen motorist and during his lifetime owned over 25 Rolls-Royce & Bentley Motorcars – including Phantoms. 20hps. 20/25s. 25/30s. Derby-Bentley 3 ½ & 4 ¼ ltrs! From the chassis cards it is apparent that within 18 months GAF62 Sir Cory-White sold GAF62 to William Henry Blandy of Rockwell in Henbury. William Blandy's home had been designed in the 1870s by the architect Sir Henry Crisp – his works included Warehouses (W. Polglase). Bristol Hospital. Glenbeigh Towers for Lord Headley and the Bristol Lunatic Asylum! W. H. Blandy was a director of Imperial Tobacco Co and died in 1938. GAF62 was inherited by his widow. Lizzie Blandy. The Blandy's son Wilfrid Boothroyd Blandy served with the RAMC in the Middle East during WWI and after the war became House Surgeon for Charing Cross Hospital. his son Anthony Blandy also went into medicine becoming a consultant paediatrician. In 1942 GAF62 was acquired by Mark Noah Thomas Round (1890/1970). the company of “Mark Round & Son” was established in the late 1800s by Mark Round Snr (1868/1924) & in due course became well known timber merchants & manufacturers of packing cases. barrels. casks; in order to produce their products Mark Round & Sons owned their own saw mill. cooperage & a hoop & crate works all located within a few streets of each other. It is somehow appropriate that M. N. T. Round's sister Sarah went on to marry a G. W. Wood! In 1955 GAF62 was bought by Frank William Gapp - auctioneer/estate agent. In 1914 Frank William Gapp and his relative Cecil Brady Gapp dissolved the family firm of Best Gapp & Co and two new firms were created F W Gapp and Best Gapp both of whom are still trading today. Between 1955 & 1974 the Hon. Hedley Vicars Strutt (great-nephew of the founder of Strutt Parker) commission the AA to produce a valuation of GAF62. we do not know if this was because Hedley Strutt intended to buy the car or if it was simply a valuation for selling the car. By mid 1974 GAF62 was in California with William J Kennedy who in 1964 had taken out a copyright for “Chicken Delight”. this is either for the jingle associated with the food or for the name of the product.
