History

Christopher Henry Metcalf Alderson Alderson (b. early 1855 in Thornby Aikton, Cumberland, d. 1 April 1929 in Kent), a market gardener, formed the Farnborough Aviation Works at Farnborough, Kent, in 1909. The company built the Candler Stella in 1909 and, in March 1910, Alderson was reported to be building a monoplane of his own designand. Certainly by 1911 Alderson was styling himself as an 'Aeronautical Engineer Manufacture of Aeroplanes' being supported by private means. In August of 1910 he was also reported to be building a biplane to be named The Brea. Nothing further is known of these projects.
