Cyril Henry Hatch (1877-1949)

Cyril H. Hatch, Stockbroker, of 807 Fifth Avenue, New York

He was married in 1919 and promptly commissioned the mansion that still stands at 153 East 63rd Street on land purchased by his mother-in-law, Mrs W.K. Vanderbilt. The house was built as quickly  as his marriage lasted: they were divorced by 1920. The following year, he had taken up residence at 807 Fifth Avenue. He was a well-known playboy and is said to have been the real father of Alice Astor.
