  • Notes 
    • "Butcher then engineer. Engineering company with about ten employees. A hard man, who wouldn't pay his children the going rate, so they left.Walter remained, and hence inherited all. Whether his father was the LudwigScheu or there was another generation in between is not sure". - KS
      (The line is now clearly not directly from Ludwig - the exact relationship is still unclear - Pete Shew)
      "I also remember my dad telling me about his dad William, being anextraordinarily lucky chap. Aparently, one time he had bandaged eyes. He just happened to be walking through the hall way of the house when one of the children screamed as it fell over the top banister - direction floorwards. William heard the scream, and put his arms out to catch the infant "blind". Miraculously No-one was hurt.On another ocasion he was sinking or building a well. you have to dig the hole, get in it and line the hole with bricks as you go down. After going down some way, the brick work collapsed inwards, but William was not hit by a single brick"
