A very handsome. compact. cosy and comfortable car. being a lovely. well-proportioned. ‘Coupe Cabriolet'. to use Barker's terminology. but perhaps more commonly known as a Dr's Coupe. The car has bags of character. with a stylish. low. vertically divided windscreen. correct set of lamps. nice set of instruments. an excellent leather folding roof and a dickey seat in the back. accessed by three steps on each side! A delightful car. running very sweetly. ideal for jaunts out on summer weekends. amongst other uses.

Snippets: Shipping. Hunting & “Foudroyant”

The first lady owner of GMK76 was Mrs Thomas Harrison Hughes (nee Bradley). her husband was a scion of the T & J Harrison Shipping Line which dates back to 1853 – their original trade was the importation of brandy from the Charente region of France. By 1924 T&J Harrison had taken over the fleets of John T Rennie (7 ships & passenger line to Natal). Rankin-Gilmour. the Crown Line of Prentice Service & Henderson and also the fleet of Scrutton Sons & Co. In WWII Mr Harrison Hughes was knighted for his services as Director of Liner Division for the Ministry of War. The Hughes family bought their home of 34 Queen Anne's Gate in 1920 after the death of Sir Edward Glenconner (Scottish industrialist) whose grandson Colin Tennant developed the Isle of Mustique. favoured by Princess Margaret. the Glenconner's London home of 34 Queen Anne's Gate housed their extensive art collection which included works by Reynolds. Gainsborough. Ramsay. Hoppner & Fragonard. Mrs Harrison Hughes only kept GMK76 for a few years and by 1928 the car was with Mrs Phyllis Cantrell-Hubbersty of Ragdale Hall in Leicestershire. In 1894 Queen Victoria granted Albert Cantrell Hubbersty Royal Licence to “use the name of Cantrell in addition to and before that of Hubbersty & to bear the arms of Cantrell with their own arms”. In 1923 Albert's son William Phillip married Phyllis Mary Hermoine Bethell – she was the grand-daughter of H. Willoughby the 8th Baron Middleton & her father's family owned Rise Park in Hull (once owned by Richard Plantagenet the Duke of Gloucester better known as Richard III. ) The Cantrell-Hubbersty family were a fervent hunting family & the mainstay of the Quorn Hunt with Major Cantrell-Hubbersty being acting Master from 1940 until his death in1947 and Phyllis Cantrell-Hubbersty from 1948/51. In 1946 the chassis cards show that GMK76 is with Frederick Alfred Gatty of Overwater Hall. Carlisle (GMK76 was not the first 20hp that Alfred had owned as in 1937 he purchased GFN10); Alfred made his fortune through the development of Khaki dye which the Army had adopted during WWI. Alfred was a great collector and upon his death in 1951 the estate & contents were auctioned off – amongst the 2. 00 lots were 2 canons. 12 bottles of 1878 vintage cognac and a chair carved from the timbers of Nelson's flagship “Foudroyant”.
