E Maule Coachbuilder and Autobody Builder

I recently came across an old advert for a Stockton coach-buidiing business called “E Maule & Sons”, who are known to have built bodies on chassis provided by Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Vauxhall, Crossley, Bugatti, SAVA, Minerva and Dodge. The company was in business for over 100 years, with roots in building horse drawn carriages/coaches at Alnwick.

The E Maule & Sons works are shown as being at 22 Skinner Street in 1890 and 1914 trade directories, (which may have been opposite the junction with Albion Street). The 1881 census shows Edwin, his wife Mary and 6 children (and 1 servant) living in Stockton. In 1890 Edwin Davison Maule is listed as living just around the corner from his works at 13 Hartington Road.

The images show two examples of their work. For those interested, you can read a newsletter article on the Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts Club website.
