Extremely rich stockbroker. He bought Parkfield from his brother-in-law, Alan Block, when his own home at nearby no. 6 The Grove became too small for his eight children. He then bought the neighbouring Fox and Crown on West Hill and turned it into stables. In 1912 the Scrimgeours sold Parkfield to the Crosfields for £12,000. They renamed it Witanhurst and made a few additions. In 2007 it was valued at £75 million.
