There are a couple of points to add to what I wrote about the Friese-Greene family earlier this week.
First, the Goon Show joke about "deep Friese-Greene" which Tim Worstall remembered comes from "Tales of Old Dartmoor". That episode begins like this:
Second, there is a rock musician and producer called Tim Friese-Green. He used to play with Talk Talk. I don't know if he is related to William and Claude. Maybe he thought the final e was just not rock 'n' roll enough.
Greenslade: This is the BBC light programme. And here is a photograph of me saying it.
Seagoon: Thank you, Friese-Greene. Or as he came out of an icebox, deep-freeze Greene.
Greenslade: I don't wish to know that.
Seagoon: Stop those carefully rehearsed and written ad-libs and proceed with your task of announcing radio's answer to TV.
Sellers: (older voice) Namely the original lantern-slide type wireless Goon Show.
