Bexhill, Sussex

Angelo John Lewis, "Professor Louis Hoffman" (1839-1919), wrote from Manningford, Bolebrooke Road, Bexhill, on 27 Dec 1916 and his widow died at Bexhill shortly after his death, so they may have been living here for some time, though his will refers to his Hastings house. Hoffmann was the leading writer on magic, cards and 'parlour amusements' at the turn of the century and his Puzzles Old and New of 1893 is a major source of information about mathematical recreations.
