5 Curious household goods

There must be plenty of other interesting items that we either don’t know about, or know about, but don’t know where they are. Examples from the latter category include an Egyptian Mummy and an Indian chest which shot out sharp rods of steel if you opened it the wrong way, both of which were apparently in his house at Lymington The whereabouts of both of these currently unknown.

6 Family and other personal ephemera

A host of correspondence and personal ephemera (including family portraits and some very personal correspondence) are waiting somewhere to be found. Some at least of this appeared somewhat mysteriously at an auction in Bournemouth in 1984. The buyer appears to have re-auctioned all this material, and material from this auction periodically comes to light in smaller auctions.
