Though this phenomena had been happening for many years, 1895 was undoubtedly the most successful one for the unofficial marriage brokers Lady Minnie Paget and Consuelo Yzanga, Duchess of Manchester. For the English gentlemen the girls married it was a way to sustain their land, houses and all of the trappings of aristocracy. For the girls, who came from new money and were therefore not part of the American social elite, marriage was a means to obtaining the social prestige they craved.

The Transatlantic Marriage Bureau will romp through the year to tell the story of these women – the seasons, the parties, the money and the titles - always with one eye on the remarkable women who made it happen behind the scenes.
