John Langdon Haydon Down. He later changed his surname to Langdon-Down. In 1868, he founded the Normansfield Hospital for the mentally handicapped, at Teddington. He started life as a chemist and belatedly trained as a doctor - on qualification, assuming control of the Earlswood Asylum for Idiots, near Reigate, Surrey. He is best known for recognising 'Down's Syndrome' or Mongolism. Of his four children, Lilian died young, Everleigh died in an incident at Normansfield, and Reginald and Percival followed their father. Dr Down received immense support from his wife, Mary, who took over after his death. Mary was the daughter of an outfitter. She died in 1900 and, like John Langdon Down, was cremated at Woking. The locations of the ashes may be uncertain, but it is inconceivable that both urns were not brought back to Normansfield.
