December 2019

The Trust is pleased to have acquired the following:

  • ‘The Furniture of Christchurch Mansion, Ipswich’ by Paul Brice, 2019 published by Gresham Publications in association with the Friends of Ipswich Museums,
  • Six contract notes dated 1946/47 in the name of T G Witt Esq. totalling about £1700 issued by A. H. Cobbold & Co of Southampton.  This stockbroker was founded in 1892 by Augustus Hills Cobbold (1854-1931) #281 on the web family tree and the firm was joined by Charles Eden Tatton Brown (1910-1990) #1925 in 1930.  Although Augustus died in 1931, Charles’ name was still on the letterhead in 1946/47

The Trust would like to thank very warmly all those who have generously donated, to mark its 15th birthday.  About 5% of the ‘Friends’ have responded so far.  To be honest this needs to be 10% if we are to meet our target so if anyone is considering donating, please would they do so as soon as possible?  Thank you.

The Trust would also like to thank the following, in no particular order, who have rendered help in one form or another:

Charles Cahan, Sharon Sawyer, Chris Heath, Shirley Fowley, Anne Hasted, Belinda Hasted, Tony Robson, Michael Gibbs, Anthony Johnson, Christine Lee and Rowell Bell.
