Synopsis:
From the Gilded Age until 1914, more than 100 American heiresses invaded Britannia and swapped dollars for titles--just like Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham, the first of the Downton Abbey characters Julian Fellowes was inspired to create after reading To Marry An English Lord. Filled with vivid personalities, gossipy anecdotes, grand houses, and a wealth of period details--plus photographs, illustrations, quotes, and the finer points of Victorian and Edwardian etiquette-- To Marry An English Lord is social history at its liveliest and most accessible.

Review:
AMERICAN HEIRESSES TAKE ON THE PEERAGE

In 1895, nine American girls, including a Vanderbilt (railroads), LaRoche (pharmaceuticals), Rogers (oil) and Whitney (New York trolleys), married peers of the British realmoXamong them, a duke, an earl, three barons and a knight. It was the peak year of a social phenomenon that began in the Gilded Age after the Civil War and handed down the legacy of Anglomania, Preppies, the Jet Set, even Winston Churchill and Princess Diana, offspring of such Anglo-American alliances. In all, more than 100 American heiresses invaded Britannia and swapped dollars for titles. TO MARRY AN ENGLISH LORD is their story.
