In 1895, nine American heiresses travelled across the Atlantic to bag themselves husbands and titles. For the English gentlemen the girls married it was a way to secure their estates. For the girls, who came from new money, marriage was a means to obtaining social prestige. The Transatlantic Marriage Bureau tells the story of these nine heiresses, and the remarkable women who made it happen behind the scenes: unofficial marriage brokers Lady Minnie Paget and Consuelo Yzanga, Duchess of Manchester.
