    'Marcus' LaTouche's full name was:

    Arthur Edward La Touche Aston, born on 12.11.1909.

    His links to Green Head Farm go back to at least 1946 (letter sent from there). Also 100 Mill Street, Macclesfield.

    Anyone with further information on Marcus please contact myself, Frank La Touche, at
