Hi anyone know how to track down the list of names of those that owned shares in the Suez Canal? Presume these are shareownwers of the Suez Canal Company. Family Legend, we all know about these dont we ;) says that the Inkster family obtained its wealth through the shares in the Canal. Now i have searched far and wide and cannot see anywhere i can find the names. any ideas?

That's a tricky question! First -- in what country and in what time frame would this have occurred?

I thought the original Suez Canal Company was a French outfit that went broke and the company was bought by the British government with financial help from the English branch of the Rothchilds.
