All sorts of intrigue with Bassett genealogy

  • Comment

I was intrigued to read on page 14 of the AJ (13.1.00) that the Bassett- Lowke family was connected with 'Bertie Bassett' of liquorice confection fame: so much so, that I rang Judith Hodgkinson of Northampton Museum to try and confirm. She is the historian who was responsible for the recent Basset-Lowke exhibition which highlighted amongst other things, Bassett-Lowke's connection with Peter Behrens and Charles Rennie Mackintosh for his houses in Northampton. She was unable to corroborate, however, any connection with the confectionary firm.

Is your contributor absolutely sure of his facts?
