Henry Royce

Sir (Frederick) Henry Royce (March 27, 1863 - April 22, 1933) was a pioneering car manufacturer, who with the Hon. Charles Stewart Rolls founded the Rolls-Royce company.

He was born in Alwalton[?], near Peterborough, which was then in Huntingdonshire (or Northamptonshire or Rutland - sources differ), but is now part of Cambridgeshire.

On his death, as a sign of mourning, the company permanently changed the colour of the "RR" lettering on the Rolls-Royce badge from red to black.
