The Author Anthony Churchill, yachtsman and publisher, retired to the Isle of Wight. He noticed the 140th anniversary of Winston Churchill’s parents’ first meeting at a Royal Gala party off Cowes fell in 2013. To commemorate he invited Winston’s descendants and twenty visited for several days to renew the family’s close ties with the Island.
His research then found numerous important connections between Winston, his family and the island. His important original discoveries are in this book.
