  • Provenance:

    This watch was the property of John Nivison, 2nd Baron Glendyne of Sanquhar.

    John Nivison was born on 14 March 1878 and succeeded to the title 2nd Baron Glendyne, of Sanquhar on 14th June 1930. He died on 28 January 1967.

    The title of Baronet had been created, in 1914, for John's father, Robert Nivison, founder of R Nivison & Co. (a stockbrokerage which acted extensively for the governments of the Dominions) for services to the British and Dominion governments. In 1922, he was raised to the peerage as Baron Glendyne of Sanquhar.

    John Nivison had a property, Herontye, in East Grinstead which he acquired in 1926. He also kept a residence at 8 Upper Grosvenor Street, London SW from 1928 (after a programme of extensive remodelling between 1927-28) until 1936.
