The 1st owner was W. E. Agg-Large. a solicitor. who had the car delivered to his London address of 37 Norfolk Street. WC2. W. E. Agg-Large's address in the country was Hayes Place. Bromley –this property was the birth place of William Pitt the Younger (1759/1806). his father William Pitt the Elder was PM in 1766 & his son followed in his father's footsteps becoming PM in 1783 at the young age of 24. The Pitt's family fortune came from Thomas ‘Diamond' Pitt (1653/1726) who whilst governor of Madras managed to acquire a rough diamond of 410carats. the London jeweller Harris took over 2 years to refine the diamond & eventually a stone of 141carats was created (together with some lesser stones which Pitt sold to Peter the Great of Russia). The 141c diamond was purchased by Philippe II. the Duke of Orleans for some £135. 00; the ‘Le Regent' diamond became part of the Royal Jewels & was set within the crown of Louis XV which he wore at his coronation in 1723. In 1792 the diamond was stolen from the Royal Treasury & was eventually found secreted in a hole under the timberwork of a Paris garret! “La Regent” is now with the remaining French Royal Jewels & is on display at the Louvre. Between 1785 & 1931 Hayes Place was owned by Sir James Bond MP. Viscount Lewisham. The Dehany family & Sir Everard Hambro before WE Agg-Large purchased the estate in 1931 from Sir Eric Hambro.

Black of The Bell Punch Company. founded in 1878 the company manufactured ticket punches for trams. trains etc. During WWII they designed & manufactured many technical instruments including the API navigation system used by Pathfinders & bomber aircraft & parts for the De Havilland Mosquito.
