Civil Engineer from Newcastle. Freemason. His brother, Waynman, was an engineer and an Egyptologist so was used on the project to bring Cleopatra's Needle to London. There is a legend that Waynman took three sacred objects from an Egyptian archaeological site where he worked and gave them to his brother John, who took them back to London and buried them under Cleopatra's Needle. It's an interesting story but one has to ask - why?
