A Chesterton Relative has died

One of Charles's great-grandsons was the writer GK Chesterton, who worked for the firm [the Chesterton family real estate business] very briefly before deciding it was not for him.
I was not aware that Gilbert had actually worked in his father's business. Have I missed something?

I also thought it was interesting that they note Sir Oliver had a gift for putting everyone at ease. Perhaps this was a family trait?


  1. My guess is that they have Golbert confused with his brother Cecil. Cecil worked in the business for a time before giving it up for a career on Fleet Street.

  2. Ah, yes, that could be, Gramps. It's funny that they wouldn't know the difference between Gilbert and Cecil.
