As the post below would indicate, Lincoln is not exactly the most progressive place in the world but one of our biggest banks, The NatWest, was founded here by Richard Ellison from Lincoln who at that time lived in this house above which has since been made into flats.
The Ellisons were a huge family here and they owned most of the city. The sons fought in various wars the most notable being the Boer War. Legend has it that the Ellisons lost their fortune due to having to pay death taxes on their fallen sons who died fighting for their country.
I wonder what Richard Ellison would think of today’s bankers and the financial crisis that brought so many to ruin …. and what he would think about the fact that my best mate is due to move into the bottom floor of this building within the next few weeks.
