The House of Robinson The Robinsons of Rhode Island


Their Genealogy and Letters, and The History of the Robinson and Son Oil Company of Baltimore, Maryland

This genealogy follows the Robinson family from the mid-1600s in England up to the time of publication. Enjoy this story to the fullest as you read through their lives during the colonial years, and business years to the great fire that marked the final days of the oil company that established The House of Robinson. Chapters include: The Robinson Genealogy, “a work-up of the family genealogy ...starting with the earliest member going all the way through each generation until the entire family has been connected;” Ancient Family Letters (transcribed) found in the possession of William Champlin Robinson III — an amazing collection dating back to 1745; The William Champlin Robinson Oil Company, which deals with “a lot of industry brand names and companies communicating to Robinson as he is assigned his new position and his resignation from his empire;” The Final Fire and an End to a Dynasty, with details of the inferno, which destroyed the entire dock area of Baltimore and the Robinson and Son Oil Company; and, Photos and Illustrations. A full-name index adds to the value of this work.
