Historian and author. Born William Wilkinson Addison at Mitton, Lancashire. He moved to Buckhurst Hill on the edge of Epping Forest, Essex, and began a lifelong association with the area, which resulted in many books on its history and people. He was a magistrate for more than twenty-five years, and became a Justice of the Peace in 1949. The photo was found by our colleague Andrew Behan.
