George Fife Angas (1789 - 1879) was a merchant, banker, landowner and philanthropist. To quote from the author’s preface:

"He was one of the Fathers and Founders of South Australia; he originated the South Australian Company, the Bank of South Australia, the National Provincial Bank of England, and the Union Bank of Australia; he fought the battle of the slaves in Honduras and the Mosquito Coast, and obtained an Act of Parliament for their emancipation; he circumvented a reigning monarch and stayed a despotic religious persecution; his foresight and shrewdness won for Great Britain the possession of New Zealand as a colony ..."

"He realised a large fortune, lost it in pure philanthropy, and, after years of poverty and distress, regained it fourfold through the reckless land purchases of an adventurer; he established the first Sunday School Union in the North of England, was one of the founders of the British and Foreign Sailors' Society and other well-known institutions, and was ... one of the leading philanthropists of this country."

"Whatever place Mr Angas may take in the annals of this country, his name will be an abiding monument in South Australia; and when the history of that colony is written, it will be found, that he must occupy a very prominent position inits records".
