Sir Richard Tangye left a will
SIR RICHARD TANGYE'S ESTATE VALUED AT £226,319.

     The will of Sir Richard Tangye, the late chairman of the great engineering firm, was proved recently, the gross value of the estate being £226,319, and the net personally £219,453. Sir Richard left all his books, manuscripts, and his famous collection of Cromwellian relics to his widow. The books include 500 volumes relating to the Protector, many of them very rare and of great value. The collection of relics contains the staff of office of Lord Fairfax, a large number of Cromwell paintings, engravings, manuscripts, autographs, coins, and medals, and a bust of the Protector.

     In making a small bequest to a dogs' home at Birmingham, Sir Richard stated: I am giving no other legacies to charitable institutions, as my practice has been to make such gifts during my life, so that I might be able to influence the manner in which they are dealt with."

     Among the bequests was one of £500 to William Henry Howse as a slight recognition of his service in keeping the accounts of Sir Richard and Lady Tangye, and Sir Richard expressed the hope that he will continue his services to Lady Tangye.

PERSONAL LEGACIES.

     There are the following legacies to employees of Tangyes, Limited: —£25 to William Butler, Manchester; £10 to George Thomas Duncan, Glasgow; £10 each to Thomas Jeffries and Charles Jester; £5 each to Edwin Hazel, of Birmingham, and to each clerk in the London office; and £10 to Anthony Beardsley, a Scripture reader in the employ of the firm.
To his former nurse, Ellen Jones, of Southport, he left £10, and to each indoor servant at his residence of Coombe Bank, Kingston-on-Thames, he bequeathed a year's wages. He advised his trustees to defer the sale of his Cornish residence, Glendorgal, as he was of opinion that it would increase considerably in value.

     Ample provision is made for his widow, Lady Caroline Tangye, of Glendorgal, Cornwall, and for his daughters, Mrs. Mabel Louise Spencer and Mrs. Elsie Gertrude Chambers. A thousand pounds each is left on trust for four grandchildren. The residue of the estate goes to the three sons Harold Lincoln Tangye, of Marstoke Castle, Warwick Richard Trevethick Gilberstone Tangye, barrister, of the Temple; and Wilfred Noel Tangye.
Sir Richard Trevithick Tangye (24 November 1833 - 14 October 1906) was a British manufacturer of engines and other heavy equipment.

He was born at Illogan, near Redruth, Cornwall, the son of a small farmer. As a young boy he worked in the fields, but when he was eight years old he was incapacitated from further manual labor by a fracture of the right arm. His father then determined to give him the best education he could afford, and young Tangye was sent to the Friends' School at Sidcot, Somerset, where he progressed rapidly and became a pupil-teacher.

Tangye was not long contented with this position, and through an advertisement in "The Friend" obtained a clerkship in a small engineering firm in Birmingham, where two of his brothers, skilled mechanics, subsequently joined him. Here Richard Tangye remained four years, obtaining a complete mastery of the details of an engineering business, and introducing the system of a Saturday half-holiday which was subsequently adopted in all English industrial works.

In 1856 he started business in a small way in Birmingham as a hardware factor and commission agent. His first customers were the Cornish mine-owners in the Redruth district, and, the business prospering, he was able before long to start manufacturing hardware goods on his own account, his two brothers joining him in the enterprise. The speciality of the brothers Tangye was the manufacture of machinery, and their hydraulic lifting jacks were successfully employed in the launching of the steamship Great Eastern.

In 1858 the firm, who now confined themselves to making machinery, built their own works, and shortly afterwards secured the sole right of manufacturing the newly invented differential pulley-block, thereby materially adding to their business, which came to include every kind of power-machine - hydraulic, steam, gas, oil and electricity. The business was subsequently turned into a limited company, and in 1894 Richard Tangye was knighted. He died in October 1906.

He was the grandfather of the authors Derek Tangye and Nigel Tangye.4
