Lady Walston

Lady Walston

Chairman of the Pulford Street Site Committee. Her generosity enabled the building of a new social centre (Walston House) on the Tachbrook Estate.

We haven't managed to prove it but we believe that this is the American, Florence Walston, neé Einstein.   Widowed from Theodore Seligman she married in 1909 the American archaeologist Charles Waldstein who was knighted in 1912 and changed his name to Walston in 1918.  Their son, Henry Walston, MP, was the cuckolded husband in the Graham Greene and Lady Walston affair.
