Relatives of the late Sir Robert Maule

THE Maule Trophy Bowling Association is celebrating its centenary year and players are looking to trace relatives of the late Sir Robert Maule, its founder.

He was a well-known businessman, head of Messrs Robert Maule and Son, the long-standing Princes Street firm – the site of which is now Frasers.

In 1910, he provided a bowling trophy to be played for annually by the prominent industries of Edinburgh. Four industrial bowling clubs were invited to form an association to compete for this trophy – Caledonian (railways), Postal (postal services), Parkside (printing) and Tramways (public transport). The inaugural event took place on 5 August, 1910.
