"Bernard Gilbert Stancomb CAYZER
His Initiative and Generosity inspired the Restoration & Furnishing of this House"
In 2006, the adjoining house (1a) was
bought by the Brownsword Charitable Foundation with the intention that
it should be reunited with No.1 as an extended historic house museum
with better educational and visitor facilities and additional
exhibition space. The enlarged museum opened on 21st June 2013.
In March 2015, a new plaque was installed in the porch of No. 1,
facing that of Bernard Cayzer:
"Andrew Brownsword Esq. CBE
Whose philanthropic gesture
allowed 1 and 1A Royal Crescent
to become one house again
ingenio acuto moribus probis"
( "sharp wit, good manners" translate.google.co.uk)
