John, William, and Thomas Townsend are recorded by Grimwade as working in Bath, but there is always the possibility of a misprint in the above newspaper report.

HORSTMANN'S

Bath


JEWELLERY FIRM SALE

ALLEGED PLOT TO DEFRAUD


London, Thursday.
At Bath (Eng.) Wilfred Bravington, alias Abraham Cohen (55), Joseph Buxton (32), and Louis Buxton (29), were remanded on charges of conspiracy to defraud and attempting to obtain money by false pretences from people with intent to cheat and defraud.

Counsel for the prosecution said that Louis Buxton, in the name of Louis Bravington got into touch with Messrs. Horstmanns, of Bath, an old-established firm of jewellers, who wished to retire.

Messrs. Horstmanns inquired if the Bravingtons were connected with the well-known London firm of that name and were told that they were. This was untrue. They posed as wealthy men and part-owners of the Trocadero Hotel, Blackpool. This was also untrue.

The business changed hands. They offered jewellery for sale ,at bargain prices as being Messrs, Horstmann's stock. Much of it, however, came from all over the country.

People bought clocks supposed to have been made in Bath and found they came from Germany.
