Peter Moynihan writes:-

Lieutenant-Colonel Charles Newman Kidd, of Westhill House, and the Steam Brewery, Dartford, Kent, a director of the Dartford Gas Co. and of J.W. Green (Limited), who died on October 5th, aged seventy three years, has left a fortune of the value of £273,592.”

….from the West Sussex Gazette, Thursday, 14th February, 1918. I didn’t know until I found this that Kidd had been a director of another brewery in Luton, Beds.
