SILK & SONS
This is the history of an unusual Aubrey family, and the first of a trilogy.
One of Morgan’s descendants, Herbert Aubrey IV of Clehonger, married Lord Harcourt’s daughter Arabella. She was getting past a marriageable age.
Her father was considered to be Queen Anne’s favourite Lord Chancellor, so it was quite a catch.
Lord Harcourt was a clever lawyer, and a powerful and influential politician. He is said to have entertained Queen Anne at his Cokethorpe estate. (Now a leading school in Oxfordshire.)
George I sacked him, but he survived and grew even richer. As for Herbert and Arabella, all he demanded from them, was their complete obedience to him – and a brood of grandsons. And did they? Produce grandsons?
Eventually, yes. In the end, much hinged on whether a son would survive to inherit the Aubreys’ estates. Silk & Sons reveals what happened
