“The Moxons and the Brownes – an account of Charles St Denys Moxon and his family” is a vivid account of two families – the Moxons and the Brownes – who combined an entrepreneurial spirit with artistic and scientific prowess. Four marriages took place between members of these two families between 1787 and 1840, and their offspring, in the following hundred years produced a geologist, several bankers, explorers, soldiers, churchmen, botanists, philanthropists and the artist who illustrated Charles Dickens’s early works. The author of this book, Bob Moxon Browne, QC, is a descendant of these two families. He is a leading lawyer in Great Britain but in his spare time, Bob has been fascinated by family history and has researched his 19th-century forebears in depth. This book is enhanced with almost seventy illustrations by, and of, members of these families.
