THE ORIGIN ov THB CRAWSHAY FAMILY TO THB ROAD OF In the Telegraph we have noticed the almost fabulous wealth of this Welsh family, and it may be interesting to many of our readers to learn how small beginnings may terminate in the annual Income of the Sovereign of «reat Britain. In the last century the original Crawshay, then a farmer's son, rode'io London on hia pony (blS sole property) to seek his fortune. He began by sweeplog ,out the warehouse of an iron- monger, who was of "iscr'niinating minrl, and saw that young Crawshay hud goou stuff him. The ironmongtr had been successfully speculating in sending Ollt iron pots to America, and his astute apprentice observed, that if the Americans many pots they must want books to hang them oa. « hereupon the master not only took the bint, but kindly determined that Crawshay should send them out and that he would lend him the money for the pnrpose. Upon this venture was realised one hundred pounds, anfi from that time tho farmer's son moved rapidly upwards, being first taken into part- nerithip by his ronster, and uumiately becoming an iron king in South Wales, "hose descendant lately deceased, has left, it is computed, above seven millions sterling. It is a curious fact that from this stock have arisen (in so short a time) two baronetages, and peerage—that of Hanover.
