The ordinary, the bizarre, the chancers, the takers and the history makers.These are the real-life stories of the Lara and Furtado families of Georgian England.

Immerse yourself in their everyday lives and discover an elopement that captured the imagination of a nation, a murder most foul, a miserly gambler, and a father and son sent to prison at the instigation of their wives.

They brushed shoulders with the Disraelis, the Adams brothers and the Byrons, leading lives sometimes heart-warming and always fascinating.

A gem of a book for family historians.
