Silversleeves

A fictional family of Norman origin in LONDON. Edward Rutherfurd had intended to use the medieval name of Gildersleeves, believing it to be extinct; but discovering that there was a Gildersleeves family still in New York, he changed it to the invented Silversleeves.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
The Guillotine lives on! Within Paris’ 11th district, at the corner of the streets of La Croix-Faubin and Roquette, there are five concrete plates that pop out of the asphalt around them. Those five spots are what is left from the French guillotine. These marks of the former French judicial system have been kept and are still visible today.
