In this talk for the Axminster Historical Society Jane Ferentzi tells the wonderful story of a penniless German migrant arriving in England in 1810, who went on to make his fortune designing a machine which perfected the refinement of sugar. You may know his mansion Clevedon Hall or remember one of his descendants, Axminster’s Dr. Finzel.
