“The Earls, Barons and Wealth of the Stanley Families”, by Graham Dilliway.

The next FoWT monthly meeting will be held on 3rd October 2022. Our guest speaker on the night will be Graham Dilliway, who will tell us about the “The Earls, Barons and Wealth of the Stanley Families”.

Graham is a chartered engineer advising international investors on power projects in the developing world. I am now partly retired and keep my brain active by researching historical information. This research has been all about the history of the wealthy families of Alderley Edge, where I grew up. My last presentation to Alderley History Group was about the Lords Stanley of Alderley which were cousins to the Earls of Derby. So I had already accumulated quite an amount of information about the Earls Stanley of Derby before you sent your message to Mandy. Even though I now live in Sussex my own family came from St Helens by way of Warrington and Alderley Edge, before I married and moved south..

As usual, the talk will be followed by an update on the latest Williamson Tunnels news and an illustrated presentation by one of the FoWT committee on another aspect of Williamson’s Tunnels, with lots of opportunities for questions and answers.
