Frank Edgar Redding

Frank E Redding and his father built Tennis Court Terrace. His great granddaughter reported that her grandmother told a story of a lab technician who visited all the house and told them to tape up their windows because someone was going to split the atom at the cavendish, and they did not know what was going to happen!
