9780246112712: Silver Salver: Guinness Family

Arguably the most fascinating family saga of the past two centuries, the story of how the Guinnesses rose from obscurity to become a household name and one of the wealthiest dynasties ever is told here for the first time.The story spans 250 years, from the founder of the family, an Anglo-Irish rent collector, down to the present generation of Guinnesses, headed by the 3rd Earl of Iveagh. It tells not one saga but three: that of the Lee Guinnesses who created the world s biggest brewery, the Rundell Guinnesses whose merchant banking empire now straddles the globe, and the Grattan Guinnesses whose adventurous, sometimes hair- raising careers as evangelical missionaries in the 19th century provide one of the least publicized but in many ways most colourful chapters of the Guinness story.It is a story of spectacular achievement and heartbreaking tragedy, an intimate study of Guinnesses ranging from the glamorous heiresses who took Society by storm to a topless showgirl in Las Vegas, from a Knight of the Garter to a hopeless alcoholic, from a Minister of State to a racing driver, from a Wall Street tycoon to an Australian sheep farmer.The book is handsomely illustrated with photographs and genealogical charts.
