You also said you went to Vermont last week, so maybe you saw something about Gordon Welchman whilst you were there, so can I also vote for Vermont?

Maybe he retired to Florida, and passed away there?
Again another very well deduced guess but not the correct answer I am afraid.

Now you are getting extremely warm. So warm that you are sharing a state line boundary. Turing had connections with Manchester University and it was where he was arrested. He also had connections with Kings Cambridge- so Welchman ......

I'm confused by the Cambridge connection. So I'm assuming maybe it's Cambridge-Yale, and Yale is in Connecticut.

I get the feeling that I've heard of Newburyport in a railway connection -- can't think what, though. Anyway, it's open floor.

Ok. A sort-of political question. What unique feature links Anne Clarissa Eden, spouse of Anthony Eden, and Mary Wilson, spouse of Harold Wilson?

Age?

I think Clarissa Eden recently celebrated her 100th birthday and I am sure Mary Wilson lived to a great age, over 100.

I doubt whether any other wives of PM's reached their centenary.
You are correct on both points. Incidentally, Clarissa is currently the oldest surviving spouse of a PM.

Pease take the floor.

Were they the dates of the last two public concerts? I think that the former was in Cardiff and the second on the roof of the Apple Building in Baker Street, London.

You’re on the right track with the first answer, but not the second.

Clue to the second date - it’s something involving one of the Beatles only

I think it has to do with George but thinking deep, My Sweet Lord was 1970 not 1971. However, The Concert for Bangladesh (actual concert not the album released to raise money) was I could swear August 1971 - so perhaps as they are both concerts in the original question this is a better answer.
