Douglas Dyas James. the 1st owner of B147EJ was the nephew of Henry William James who in 1880 founded the James Cycle Co of Birmingham to build Penny-Farthings. by 1892 they were producing lightweight racing cycles. In c1900 Douglas's father John Thomas James formed the Birmingham Rim Works producing rims for both cycles & motor-cycles. upon the death of John James in 1902 the firm was run under the guidance of Henry James. Douglas worked for both his uncle & his father in their respective firms before becoming involved in the Mining & Construction Industry. In the 1930s Douglas James was a director. as was his Uncle Archibald. of the Hamstead Colliery which in 1908 was the scene of a horrendous underground fire with the loss of many lives. A later owner of B147EJ was none other than H. R. Darby who not only wrote a book about Waltham Abbey but was the Vicar at the Abbey before he was appointed Dean of Battle (1970/75) & later the Bishop of Sherwood (1975/89).
