Custodial history:
The Stevens family was headed by Marshall Stevens, co-founder and general manager of the Manchester Ship Canal in the late nineteenth century. He was also the Conservative MP for Eccles from 1918-1922. In 1873 he married Louisa Blamey, daughter of Philip Blamey, and Lady of the Manor of St Blazey, Cornwall. They had three sons, Blamey (1875-1939), Ivan Manuel (1877-1954) and Thomas (1883-1970). The bulk of this collection relates to Blamey, a mining engineer who worked in Alaska and Mexico, his wife Phoebe and their daughter Louisa Elizabeth (later Raimundez), who worked for the Save the Children Hund in Yugoslavia during the 1939-1945 War.
