Denny Green was born at The Woods , Napton on the 9th March 1933. He had three sisters and a brother. His father, Lewes Green, was a coal and corn merchant who held the tenancy of Calcutt Farm on The Shuckburgh estate, three miles distant from The Woods. His mother was a Warner from Watergall whose sister Joan had coincidentally married Lewes’ brother Arthur and as Denny’s Aunty Joan it was she who first encouraged Denny in his love of horses. Through marriage the Warner and Green families were closely interlinked and much later the very first horse that Denny ever broke was for his uncle, Tom Warner.
