The Wealthy Brits Who Made Loans to Kings

The Cotswold wool trade was declining so badly many people in the Cotswolds had to move elsewhere and those who stayed were often starving during the era surrounding 1678. If you visit the Cotswolds in the English countryside, take notice of the churches in the area, which were built by English wool merchants who were so wealthy they were known to make loans to Kings. These wool merchants loved their “Cotswold Lions,” as the sheep were called and to show their gratitude, love and appreciation, the merchants donated great wealth to have the elaborate churches erected. Today these churches are called “Wool Churches”.
