The Disraeli marriage
Dep. Hughenden 4/2, fols. 186r-7r
Perhaps the secret of the success of the Disraeli marriage lay in their contrasting qualities, as outlined here by Mary Anne (represented in the right-hand column). They were married on 27 August 1839; Lord Lyndhurst was the Best Man. If Disraeli strayed - and he is reputed to have done so after the marriage moved towards its second decade - any evidence would have been removed by his executor, Sir Philip Rose, when he weeded the papers after Disraeli's death.
