Sir Charles Wilson. Lived here at Brandsby Lodge 1902-27. Through sheer force of personality, from 1907 for over 20 years he led Leeds City Council, though his Conservative party was in the minority. A municipal imperialist, who famously declared "I am Leeds" he wanted Leeds' fiefdom to extend from the Pennines to the sea. 1859-1930.
