Emily Cass Stephenson (my great great grandmother) was the grand daughter of Ambrose Frost of the White Swan, Exning. (Ambrose Frost had a daughter Lucy, who married James Holcomb, son of Anthony Holcomb, the bailiff at Chippenham Hall, who lived to be 98 and was feted as Chippenham's oldest resident when he died in 1890. James and Lucy Holcomb moved to London where they had two daughters, and kept a beer house called the Jolly Butcher. James died young, and the family moved back to the Newmarket area, where Lucy went into service and the two daughters lived with their grandparents. Emily Holcomb went to live with Ambrose and Lucy Frost at the White Swan in Exning. She subsequently married Charles James Stephenson, and they kept the Carpenter's Arms in Station Road Wood Ditton / Newmarket. Charles James Stephenson died in 1919).  William Charles Stephenson was my great great uncle; which makes him the SON of Charles James Stephenson and Emily Cass Stephenson (nee Holcomb) ... so what we actually see at the Bull in the early 1920s is a mother succeeding her son!! *
