William A Appleton
W A Appleton seems to have many connections with Ashwell and the museum.
He was a CBE and JP.
He was a trustee of the museum from its foundation in 1930 until 1941.
The Museum has a book written by him in 1921 when he was Secretary of the General Federation of Trade unions titled: ‘What we want and where we are’
He lived at Prospect House, Townsend, which is believed to be Townsend House
