Snippets: The skeleton in the Cupboard

Delivered to Alfred Matthew Cawthorne of Rusthall House. Tunbridge Wells just in time for Christmas of 1936. Between 1836 & 1936 Rusthall had been home to several interesting characters including: Miss Jane Bowen Harding who was a subscriber to Mary Ashdowne's treatise “The Seasons of Life”. Between the mid & late 1800s Sir John & Lady Emma Musgrove (Mayor of London 1850/1) occupied Rusthall House. After he death of Lord Musgrove in 1881 Rusthall House was purchased by Frank McClean (1837/1904) an eccentric astronomer & engineer; Frank built an observatory & fitted his Polar Heliostat to the roof of Rusthall House so that he could study the Northern night skies. the results of his observations of the Spectra of 160 stars was published in 1896 &the following year he travelled to S. Africa to study the Southern Skies. His efforts were resulted with him being awarded the Gold Medal of the Royal Astronomical Society. His son. Francis McClean was a pioneer aviator who flew with Wilbur Wright in 1908 at Le Mans; Francis's best known stunt was in 1912 when he flew his plane between the upper & lower decks of Tower Bridge & also underneath London Bridge! A member of the current generation of the Cawthorne family has extensively researched the family tree as far back as the 1500s. They have discovered that in 1891 Alfred Matthew Cawthorne changed his name by deed poll from Churley to his mother's maiden name of Cawthorne - as had his elder brother George; the permission to do this was signed by Queen Victoria herself. Speculation is that there was a family scandal involving an Uncle James. a dairymaid. the slave trade & a “Skeleton in the Cupboard” – to know more you need to buy the car! After WWII Alfred sold GGM1 to Howard Ross Tremlett of Exeter. whose family tree can be traced as far back as the early 1700s to James Tremlett. a dyer. The Tremlett family business included serge-making. fabric & paper mills & in modern day Exeter there is still a Tremlett Quay
