We are working on a history project on our church and we wonder whether you have any material on our greatest benefactors Daniel George Bingham (1830-1913) and Jane Bingham-Brain (1832-1922). In 1912/1913 members of Box parish donated a font and ewer to our church. Box was obviously a place with which Mr Bingham was closely connected. We wonder whether this was Box in Gloucestershire or Box in Wiltshire. Our latest official history informs me that it was Box in Wiltshire. But this mistake has been frequently made. D. G. Bingham worked for the Great Western Railway and was inhabitent of Cirencester before he came to the Netherlands. Mrs Bingham-Brain was born in Kelmscott Manor Farm in Oxfordshire. We wonder whether it would be possible to find out more about it. In our archives we found a paper - the "Font Fund" -listing some of the names of the people who donated money to it. It contains amongst others the name of the Rev [Ward?] and Hon. Ms Twistleton. Perhaps you have newspaper reports or photographs about it?
