Notes and references

  1. There is a record of Elsie Dorey making her will while living at 5 Bel Royal Villas in 1935, and of Emile Adolphe Voisin leaving it in his will to his nephew Ernest, but the HER record shows only four properties in 2020. It is possible that the datached property to the right of the four shown in the photograph, now known as Bel Royal Lodge, may originally have been No 5
