The Hamlyn Trust

"In loving memory of Emma Warburton Hamlyn daughter of William Bussell and Emma Gorsuch Hamlyn born Nov 5th 1860, died Sept 1st 1941"

The Hamlyn Trust was created in 1948, by Miss Emma Hamlyn in memory of her father, a solicitor and Justice of the Peace in Torquay, Devon. The object of the Trust is to further knowledge and understanding of the law; this is achieved through an annual series of public lectures by distinguished judges, legal practitioners, academic lawyers and other eminent speakers.
