Footnotes

  • Formerly from the estate of the Late E M C Instone (1872-1932).

    Ernest Martyn Critchley Instone joined Daimler in 1896 when the company was about 1 month old. He left in 1899 and travelled to Paris to study the motor industry, returning to Daimler full of new ideas, he swiftly rose up through the ranks and was reported as being promoted to General Manager in 1904. In 1905 he was the winner of the first hill climb event held at Shelsley Walsh in his 35Hp Daimler, establishing the hill record with a time of 77.6 seconds and average speed of 26.15mph. He was again promoted to Sales Manager and then to Commercial Manager. In 1921 he went into business with Undecimus Stratton (former head of Daimler's London Depot) taking control of Daimler's London premises at 27 Pall Mall under the name of Stratton-Instone. After Stratton's death in 1929, Instone went on to buy out Daimler's remaining interest and renamed the business Stratstone Limited in 1930.
