Description

A talk by Laura Probert in The Wellington Room at The Falstaff Hotel

Local historian, Laura Probert, delivers a fond tribute to Ramsgate’s first lady mayor and Ramsgate’s most generous benefactress Dame Janet Stancomb-Wills.

The niece of Lord Winterstoke came to live on the Eastcliff in 1911 after her uncle died. She played an active role in the life of the town until her death in 1932 refusing to move away the clifftop during the First World War even though the guns of Flanders could be heard from her bedroom window. The talk also reveals something about her life in Bristol, continuing her uncle’s good work there.
