Full Product Description

Popular as a name from earliest times, ‘Hughes’ is to be found all over the world today – but bearers of the name have a particular bond with Scotland in the form of curious link to an ancient clan.
Active on the field of battle, bearers of the name have also achieved distinction in the fields of enterprise and invention, while others have contributed to the worlds of politics, entertainment, arts and sport.
They include Howard Robart Hughes, or Howard R. Hughes Sr., the American entrepreneur who revolutionised oil well drilling, making a fortune for himself and laying the foundations of the mighty Hughes business empire that was inherited by his son, Howard R. Hughes Jr.
Hughes died in 1924, and control of the lucrative business empire passed to his 18-year-old son, Howard R. Hughes Jr., who was destined to become one of the wealthiest, famous and eccentric men in the world.
An industrialist, engineer, aviator, film producer and philanthropist, he died in 1976.
The colourful tale of bearers of the Hughes name is recounted here.
