The Lytton family has been associated with ABE since the 1930s when the then President of the Association, Sir Edwin Lutyens, whom the CABE headquarters are named after, redesigned much of the interior and main parterre of the Lytton ancestral home of Knebworth House in Hertfordshire and was responsible for the master planning of many public buildings in New Delhi. Sir Edwin married Emily Lytton, sister of Constance Lytton, the suffragette, and the present Lord Lytton’s great aunt.
