Maurice Westrop was born in about 1920. He had a sister. Maurice worked in farming then worked his way up to a career in management and later became one of the managers for the agglomerate NY Estates. Upon his arrival, Maurice clashed with elderly tenant farmer Arthur Braithwaite. Maurice had a wife and daughter Judy. Maurice was relocated to Wales in 1980 and was taken over by Richard Anstey.
He left Beckindale in May 1980 for ever but was mentioned in 1983 by Alan Turner when they met offscreen at an NY Estates conference. Judy stayed on for two months until she left in the summer of 1980 to take a job elsewhere.
