    $\begingroup$ Looks good! No. 10 may also be Chamberlain. $\endgroup$ – Tom Feb 22 '17 at 9:14
  • $\begingroup$ Rule of science could also be 'Spencer Compton' as in the 'Compton Effect' or 'William Cavendish' - as in the gravitational constant. $\endgroup$ – Raeles Feb 22 '17 at 9:22
  • $\begingroup$ @Tom oh yes, that fits much better (and is the whole surname), well spotted! $\endgroup$ – Especially Lime Feb 22 '17 at 12:01
