Charles Francis Annesley Voysey (1857-1941), Architect and designer
Voysey was a short man with sandy hair and very blue eyes, who prided himself on his resemblance to John Wesley, a maternal ancestor.  Temperamentally he was aloof and somewhat intimidating – ‘clean and prim and gentle, but of firm disposition’.
