Description

1924 Rolls-Royce 20hp

Chassis Nr. GH27. Originally a Park Ward Saloon, later in life cut down to make a pick up truck, and later still transformed into the current, rather charming fixed head coupe with dickey seat, by adding a well built rear section behind the original cab. Has a lovely divided ‘V screen’, correct instruments and lamps, full set of artillery wheels, including twin side-mounted spares, and is nicely presented, sound and running well. Despite its varified life in different countries (just back from the USA), the car retains its original engine and UK registration number, which we always like to see. Great potential in various ways. Chassis No.  GH27                                 Reg. No. XR 2983 £37,500. Snippets: An Industrious Gentleman The 1st owner of GH27 was Edgar John Glaze who business was as the partner of Charles George Bushell as Iron, Steel, Coal & Coke Merchants, however, in 1920 this partnership was dissolved with E. J. Glaze continuing as a sole trader.  It would appear that the Glaze family were involved in the iron, steel, coal & coke business with Edgar’s great-grandfather John Chambers as being a forge-man in 1841 with a promotion to forge-manger in 1851 & by 1851.  By 1861 John’s son Cornelius Chambers had moved to Pensnett and married Sarah Raybould (a Grocer’s daughter), by 1891 their daughter Elizabeth had married John Glaze (iron founder) who took over ownership of the iron works known as Brockmoor Iron Works.  At one stage John Glaze was listed in the London Gazette as a bankrupt – it did not appear to change his standard of living and it is John & Elizabeth’s son that purchased GH27.  Thomas Glaze was co-owner of Straits Green Colliery with John Newey – in 1880 Thomas Glaze was “murderously attacked by Thomas Malpass, an employee who had been refused and advance in wages”, as a result of the attack Thomas Glaze suffered a broken shoulder & bruises, Mr  Malpass was committed for trial.  George Glaze was an iron & brass founder whose business partner was Leonard Leek of Holbech ho in 1919 sold their business to the Special Steel Company for £45,000.  John Edgar Glaze married a Miss Marjorie Bullows whose family firm of Alfred Bullows & Son (est 1835) were manufacturers of buckles, rings, traces & general horse furniture.  After just 3 years GH27 was acquired by A H Redfern a partner in the firm of Redfern Stevens of Beverley Works, 177 Alma Street, Birmingham – established in 1924 the company specialised in metal work, during WWII the company of E & H P Smith (makers of specialist tools & Enfield Cycles) acquired Redfern Stevens to further production of military components.  In the early 1930s GH27 was with Rev Holden at 28 Parkside, Wimbledon known as “Old Pound House” which was constructed by the Scottish architect George Hubbard (1859/1936) & his former pupil Albert Walter Moore (1876/1965).  After a few years GH27 was again with new owners – this time Thomas Neilson who was the manager of the private T.B. Sanatorium at Mundesley in Norfolk which was established by F. W. Burton-Fanning in 1899 for wealthy patients – including: C. G. Pulford – Tea Planter, Harry Vardon – Golfing legend, Marks Gertler – painter, Sir Gordon Richards – champion jockey, Thomas Garland – medical pioneer, James Courage author of One House.  An amusing story that we found is when Fred Westgarth (footballer) was a resident he was visited one day by both his wife & mistress – his comment was “Hallo! Clash of fixtures here!”
