Snippets: The MacLeod Surgeons & the Two Marjories

The first owner was Dr. Alexander Cameron MacLeod a 4th generation surgeon; his brother Douglas. his father Charles (born in Brindisi. Italy). his uncles Ewan & Roderick (both born in India). his grandfather Alexander & his great-grandfather John were surgeons. At one stage during their careers Charles. Ewan. Roderick. Alexander Snr & John MacLeod all served as surgeons in India. The two Marjories are namely Jean Marjorie MacLeod wife of Dr Alexander Cameron MacLeod and a later owner of WFC3 Miss Daphne Marjorie Helen Nash-Peake. Whilst WFC3 was in the ownership of Miss Nash-Peake she repainted the car in her favourite shade of green in order to match her driving outfit! Daphne was an accomplished artist & it is thought that she was related to the Bloomsbury artist John Nash-Peake who had studied at the Royal Academy under Millais whose best known works include Ophelia.
