Dame Barbara Clayton was almost certainly the biochemist / toxicologist who conducted the analysis of the lead paint sample in 1963. She worked closely with Professor Sir Alan Moncrieff and was also mentioned by Martin Moncrieff as a close collaborator of her father.

Born in 1922 Barbara Clayton's major career was in the laboratory, particularly at Great Ormond Street. Later she moved to Southampton, becoming a highly successful dean of its medical school, one of Britain's rare institutions that has experimented with new educational methods. She has served on numerous government committees and was also president of the Royal College of Pathologists.
