Who was George Lanchester?

George Herbert Lanchester, was an English engineer. He was one of three brothers who played a leading role in the early development of the UK auto-industry.

In 1909, following the departure from full-time involvement with the company of his elder brother Frederick, George took over responsibility for the Lanchester Motor Company. Thereafter, while Frederick pursued his own glittering career as one of the leading automotive and aeronautical engineers of the time, it was George who ran the business the brothers had established together.
