* Philip Humphrey Chatwin (1903-1949)
married Margaret Knyvett 'Peggy' Mirams (1905-1952) in 1928
Philip Humphrey Chatwin was a son of Leslie Broughton Chatwin (1872-1933) & Isobel Milward (1871-1953) of Birmingham. Isobel was from one of the most prominent Birmingham families, her father, Robert Harding Milward, being a prosperous solicitor. Leslie had trained as a solicitor at Ryland Martineau (now Martineaus) but his heart was in the theatre and the sea. Isobel had also studied law. Leslie attended Oxford and had been a member of the Oxford University Yacht Club. He wrote one-act plays for the Birmingham Repertory Theatre. After WWI he was a founding member of the Midland Sailing Club and the Barnt Green Sailing Club.
Immediately after Leslie's marriage with Isobel in 1902, a scandal exploded in Birmingham which became known as the 'Milward Affair'. Because of the horror Leslie felt in being involved, (through his marriage) and the shame he felt at his clients being caught up in the 'Milward Mess' he never mentioned it. The subject was concealed from his children and grandchildren, although they found out when older through outsiders.
I recommend the book "Bruce Chatwin". Bruce was a son of Philip's brother Charles, who, like their father, was also a lawyer from Birmingham. Charles joined the Royal Naval Reserve during WWII. The biography was written by Bruce's friend and biographer, Nicholas Shakespeare and has the above story of the demise of Bruce's grandfather Leslie (Philip's father). It is also available in ebook. Also read the wiki article Charles 'Bruce' Chatwin (1940-1989), travel writer, novelist, journalist
