The Clarendon Connection

The Clarendon Connection

(p.72) Chapter 5 The Clarendon Connection
The New River


Oxford University Press

Among the manuscript sources for the work in this book, the bulkiest coverage is that of the relations between the company and the Backhouse, Clarendon, and Lloyd families. The disputes lasted well over a century and must be recounted, at least in outline, because of the light they throw both on the nature of the ‘King's shares’ and on the process by which the company developed from being concerned only with the supply of water to being, as it is to this day, a substantial proprietor of valuable landed estates at Clerkenwell. In order to make sense of the story, this chapter discusses in detail about who formed the connection between these three families and how this connection was established.
