OriginChios.
Note 1(Chaviara-Axeskoufotos) He appears in a ca. 1900 Derby Day family group photograph almost certainly taken at Ashstead Park. Chairman of the Leatherhead and District Electricity Company. A well-known orchid grower.
Note 2Known as ‘Ashstead Ralli’, he was given Ashstead Park as a wedding present by his mother, costing £120,000 in 1889.. Catsiyannis rather disapprovingly says he led a very grand life, ‘keeping eight cars and an army of servants’.
Note 3He appears to have conceived the four-wheeled ‘Ralli Car’ which, inspirationally, had shafts designed so that it could be worked by one, two or a team of horses (see example made ca.1890 by Oliver of Hawkhurst). He also gave his name to a Ralli Dog Cart.
Note 4Left his property valued at £516,760 (net) to his widow. His former head-gardener George Henry Hunt was drowned in the 1912 Titanic disaster.
