Elleray seems to have been a prominent name in Windermere, according to the Woodland Trust: 'Orrest Head and Elleray Wood formed part of the Elleray Estate which was formerly owned by Arthur Henry Heywood. In 1902 his widow and daughter gave Orrest Head in trust to Windermere Council to be held for public walks of pleasure grounds. In 1943 most of Elleray Wood was given to the Council under similar terms by other members of the family.' It's an unusual name, yet Ransome made him a taxi driver.
