QX13.02. GWR 2952 Twineham Court.

Why was this locomotive named after a building in Sussex, many miles from GWR territory? I have carried out extensive research but still cannot find a connection. The locomotive was built in March 1913 and was the first to be named after a building that was not on the GWR. Indeed, apart from the "Halls", only one or two later locomotives were named after buildings outside the GWR.
