Almost a claim to fame them! I presume that Chance was her maiden name then? I must admit that I hadn't heard of the company until Wendy opened this thread in 2007, but it's nice to have a bit of Brum industrial history linked to the name.
According to the information that was passed onto me recently, she married into the chance family. It's my understanding that although I'm not 100% sure that her maiden name was Medlicott.
