Description 1 of 1

The origin of the name Slaley cannot be understood without reference to the Hunting Family. Charles Hunting was a ship and landowner and started the first Hunting Company in 1874. After his death, his second son, Charles Samuel took over and expanded the shipping activities and built Slaley Hall near the village of Slaley outside Newcastle. Turning the company over to his two sons, it was the younger, Gerald Lindsay, my grandfather, who lived most of his life at Slaley Hall. During WW1 Gerald Lindsay was badly wounded at Ypres and was discharged out of the army but joined the Royal Flying Corps where he served till after the end of the war. This was the start of a long family association with aircraft operating and manufacture. Their various stakes in shipping, aerospace and land estates bear testimony to the individual tastes and passions of family members. Land, sea and air are perennial themes; reflected in our labels. – Description from Dragac
