Lang Syne English Family Information History Fact Book - Green
With origins that stretch back through the dim mists of time, ‘Green’ is a name that figures prominently in the history of not only the British Isles but also that of other countries.
Some suffered gruesome martyrdom for their religious beliefs, while others have gained international fame and acclaim not only on the battlefield but also as scientists, entrepreneurs and philanthropists – while one particularly eccentric bearer of the name, Hetty Green, was the fabulously wealthy American businesswoman known as “The Witch of Wall Street” and who, because of her penny-pinching lifestyle became known as “The World’s Greatest Miser.”
Read here the colourful and dramatic tale of the Greens of yesteryear and today.
