Twenty-five-year-old Matt Elliott grew up in Warrington and spent four years studying maths and physics at Durham University. He is currently in the final stages of writing up his PhD at the University of Surrey.
His father, Michael, is a member of the Masons’ Company, as was his grandfather Fred. And he recently discovered his great grandfather, also called Fred, lived on Sherburn Road – just 100 yards from the property he lived in as a student. His great aunt, Durham-born Mrs Connie Hotchkiss and now living in the Isle of Man, became a freeman in 2012.
