Cyril Wanklyn

NEWLY ADDED: Cyril Wanklyn, Historian of Lyme

Posted on: 25th November 2013

Slightly out of order, but the third instalment in the “People of Lyme” series is now available on the Research page. This one concerns Cyril Wanklyn (1864 – 1943), who shared the honorary curatorship of Lyme Regis Museum with Dr Vitruvius Wyatt Wingrave between 1927 and 1940. Wanklyn’s magnum opus was his history of the town, the first edition of which was published in 1922.
