Many thanks for all the photographs and documents

kindly supplied by Norman’s niece  

(picture above and on left, with her son)

Lancelot Robson, possibly Hugh Lancelot Robson (1901 census)

A photograph taken in 1949.

Lancelot was, in 1911, we now believe, working with Norman Phillips, running a fruit growing business in the Burpham area.

The Phillips family maintained contact with Lance until at least the late 1940s for he was at, and gave a speech at, the wedding of Douglas Phillip’s daughter when she married at Basingstoke in 1949.


On the 1901 Census

he is shown as a Civil Engineer, living with his parents in Guildford.

He was born in Stoke next Guildford in 1882 and died in 1953.

His father was, we believe a Church of England Minister,

possibly in Guildford (Holy Trinity?) as was his elder brother,

Herbert Eric (b: 1878). Living Oxfordshire

1965
