IZNAGA - Lugar de juncos.

     

      ULTIMO SEÑOR DE IZNAGA, POR HABER QUEDADO HABOLIDOS TODOS LOS SEÑORIOS AL PROCLAMARSE LA TERMINACION DEL GOBIERNO ESPAÑOL EN 1/10/1899. INDEPENDENCIA DE CUBA 5/20/1902.

     

      Fue agente consular de los Estados Unidos en Trinidad desde Septiembre 3, 1897 hasta el comienzo de la "Spanish War". Fue alcalde de Trinidad durante la ocupacion americana y a la hora de su muerte era Teniente Gobernador de la Provincia de Trinidad.

     

      Palacio Iznaga, Trinidad, Cuba.

El palacio Iznaga fue mandado a construir por Pedro José Iznaga y Borrell (1789-1841), posiblemente para su enlace con María del Monserrate Fernández de Lara y Borrell, también su prima, con quien contrajo matrimonio el 4 de febrero de 1829. Iznaga fue miembro de una encumbrada familia quienes llegaron a Cuba desde el País Vasco en 1720, dueños de vastas plantaciones y numerosos esclavos, los Iznaga fueron una de las familias más poderosas de Trinidad y Sancti Spiritus, un dato que atestigua el Palacio Iznaga. Ubicado a cien metros de la iglesia, tiene una torre que le da un aura de fortaleza y un gran patio central. La familia Iznaga también se le debe otros importantes monumentos como el de la famosa torre construida por su hermano Alejo en el ingenio Manacas Iznaga.

En palabras del norteamericano Samuel Hazard la novedad consistía en que "Las casas de Trinidad se diferencian de las de la Habana en que no tienen paredes medianeras que separan el comedor del salón, pero en su lugar hay generalmente unos arcos abiertos de piedra que, separando de cierta manera los distintos departamentos contribuyen a una mayor belleza y comodidad, por permitir la libre circulación del aire, a la vez que ofrecen una mas encantadora perspectiva los suelos de mármol blanco, las pulidas arcadas y los ricos muebles de las habitaciones".

En efecto, la construcción de arcos de medio punto en el muro que antaño dividía la sala del comedor originaron la principal transformación a reconocer en la parte delantera de la casa cubana colonial: el comedor se desplazó hacia las galerías -aparece en su lugar un nuevo espacio: la saleta- y sala y saleta, comunicadas por los grandes arcos, dieron lugar a un gran salón de recibo. Transformación pronto asumida por otras de las villas primitivas y por las ciudades de nueva fundación. La explicación de la procedencia de esta transformación espacial queda para otro articulo. Excedería el espacio disponible. Valga solo subrayar el hecho que sitúa al palacio Iznaga en el punto de partida de los cambios operados en la casa cubana tradicional durante el siglo XIX, lo que no es poca cosa, pues es el último y el de mayor significación sociocultural.

El Palacio Iznaga, innovador en todos los aspectos, fue uno de los primeros en utilizar el nuevo tipo de alero que habría de imponerse en la región central durante la primera mitad del siglo XIX: el llamado en gola. Fue Iznaga uno de los primeros edificios en utilizar el hierro para protección de ventanas y balcones. Pionero también en adoptar esa bella solución también venida con el nuevo siglo, casi trinitaria por su reiteración, de las persianas en abanico para proteger la galería-comedor de los ardores del sol tropical. Del mismo modo, fue uno de los más importantes modelos de la transformación decorativa que se advierte en los tirantes de techos, donde se abandonan las lacerías y se imponen tablones lisos con plafones de clásico diseño. Fue también ejemplo del extendido uso de las guarniciones de madera rodeando los vanos principales. Es, además, el edificio doméstico más alto del país - más de 14 metros de puntal a la cumbrera-, inmensa mole que rematada en torre mirador, daba fe de la alta jerarquía social de sus dueños.

     

      The Shield: official publication of the Theta Delta Chi Fraternity, Volume 27

Carlos Iznaga, A '92 passed to the fi Charge on September 21, 1910.

After a course of preparation at the Allen School, West Newton, Mass. Brother Iznaga entered Rensselaer in the fall of 1888 and was initiated into Theta Delta Chi in the spring of the following year. After three years in the institute he was compelled, on account of business interests, to abandon his college course and return to his home in Cuba.

His career after leaving school was attended by a measure of success accorded to few. He was consular agent of the United States at Trinidad, Cuba, from September 3, 1897, to the outbreak of the Spanish War. During the war he was known personally to General Wood and appointed by that officer as mayor of Trinidad during the American occupation. He took an active part in the war and following this was successful in various business undertakings. At the time of his death he was Lieutenant Governor of the Province of Trinidad and well on the way to higher honors.

He was married in 1894 to Señorita Matilde Meyer and is survived by his wife and eight children, with whom all Theta Delts will deeply sympathize. His death resulted from a sudden illness while on a visit to the States for the purpose of placing his eldest son in an American school. Brother Iznaga is buried in the city of Trinidad, Cuba.

No one who attended Rensselaer during his day will escape a distinct shock upon learning of dear old "Duke's" death, and, to the handful of Theta Delts on A's roll during her last good days, it will bring back recollections which one may not dwell upon with dry eyes.

Who of us does not remember countless incidents of school days of which Duke was the center? - incidents of no interest to others perhaps, but cherished in the breasts of the participants with other sacred " memories of boyhood." How about the chimes of Holy Cross? How about the unexpected discovery of that long forgotten ten dollar bill in Duke's last summer trousers and the celebration that followed? What a boy will fail to understand, "I am a man".

Duke, the prodigal, Duke, the thrifty, Duke, the optimist, Duke in the depths - delightful mixture of apparent contradictions yet always consistent. Duke the dreamer, Duke the practical; Duke the indolent Hidalgo, Duke the energetic Yankee - but always Duke, the gentleman, good Theta Delt and true.

 

      Children of Carlos Roman Iznaga e Iznaga and Matilde Meyer y Cantero were as follows:

      275      i           Carlos Joaquin15 Iznaga y Meyer, born 1895 in Trinidad, Cuba.   Notes: DIED WITHOUT HEIRS Medio propietario del Ingenio "Vega Vieja" - tuvo que vender su mitad a Edwin Atkins quien entonces arrendo la otra mitad de su hermana Diana Maria Iznaga Meyer. Palacio Iznaga - A una cuadra del colegio se alzaba la casona señorial de los Iznaga, que los trinitarios, acaso con justificada desmesura, llaman "palacio" y que ya entonces, a principio de los años treinta, empezaba a mostrar algunas señales de abandono. Casa de doble planta y altísimo puntal con salida a tres calles y rematada por una torre mirador era, a qué dudarlo, el edificio de más carácter y solera de toda Trinidad y la única de las grandes mansiones del siglo XIX donde todavía residía la familia que la fundara. En uno de los dormitorios de la planta alta, donde apenas entraba un atisbo de luz durante el día a través de las gruesas cortinas de terciopelo verde que se sobreponían a las de cáñamo y éstas a las persianas de madera, Carlos Iznaga se había encerrado voluntariamente para emprender un regreso irrevocable a la niñez. Se interesaba en todas las novedades tecnológicas llamadas a sacar de su estancamiento, según creía, a la amable ciudad que se habituaba a vivir en un crepúsculo y, en lo personal, a rescatar la fortuna de su familia con innovaciones agrícolas que le devolvieran el rendimiento a sus tierras empobrecidas.

      "Antonio Modesto del Valle e Iznaga"- Gabinete de Historia Natural a la Universidad de La Habana.

Las Gestiones del señor Emilio Auber, Catedrático que fue de Historia Natural y Vice Director de este Instituto en los primeros años de su creación, se debió que en 27 de Febrero de 1868 el Sr. Antonio Modesto del Valle e Iznaga, cediese el magnífico gabinete de Historia Natural que poseía y cuyo valor estimaba en diez mil pesos en oro.

Arrastrado por su patriotismo y por su amor al progreso intelectual de su país, el Sr. Valle e Iznaga solo impuso como única condición, que los 480 pesos equivalentes al interés del capital, en que justipreciaba su gabinete, se empleasen, durante veinte años, en costear el grado de Bachiller en artes, a los alumnos pobres que lo obtuviesen por oposición.

En Mayo del mismo año, el Gobernador General de la Isla, aceptó esta cesión: haciéndose inmediatamente la traslación al local que ocupa el Instituto, a reserva de lo que resolviera el Gobierno de Madrid.

Por R. O. de 25 de Agosto de 1868, la Reina no solo admitió tan valioso presente, con las condiciones impuestas por el cesionario, sino que mandó que en lo sucesivo se denominase a este Museo Gabinete Valle Iznaga. Pero el Gobierno español no cumplió nunca lo pactado con el Sr. Valle Iznaga, ni otorgó un solo grado de Bachiller.

Con este motivo, en Octubre de 1899, el Sr. Modesto del Valle y Duquesne, hijo del donante, ocurrió al Gobierno Interventor, para que cumpliese las condiciones de la donación, ya que todas sus gestiones cerca del Gobierno español habían sido infructuosas.

El Secretario de Instrucción Pública, Sr. Barreiro, dio oído á su justificada reclamación y mandó (Gaceta del 3 de Abril de 1900) "que por espacio de diez años, el Instituto de la Habana concediera en cada uno de estos, gratuitamente, diez grados de Bachiller, cuyos títulos habían de recaer en escolares pobres y sobresalientes, mediante oposición, y que se cambiase el nombre Gabinete Valle por el de Antonio Modesto Del Valle e Iznaga.

     

      Resultando que entre D Antonio Modesto del Valle e Iznaga y su madre Doña Natividad Iznaga de Acosta se convino en juicio de paz celebrado en la Habana en 24 de Junio de 1884 que ésta se comprometía á pagar a aquél la deuda que le reconocía como cierta de 68,995 pesos 99 centavos en oro con las primeras sumas de dinero efectivo valores o bienes de cualquiera clase que le correspondieran en la testamentaría de su difunta madre Doña Francisca del Valle de la que era heredera en una quinta parte además del tercio en que había sido mejorada y que facultaba desde luego á su citado hijo D Antonio Modesto para que pudiera intervenir dicha herencia y pedir la ocupación de los bienes en la parte á ella correspondiente y necesaria para cubrir la cantidad adeudada con los intereses que se fijaban y un tanto para costas.

      In the death at Paris of Fernando del Valle C. Iznaga a famous family loses another member. He was a cousin and one of the few remaining near relatives of the Dowager Duchess of Manchester and of Lady Llster-Kaye, wife of Sir John Pepys Llster-Kaye, Bart., both of whom are well remembered in New York. The Dowager Duchess of Manchester was Miss Consuelo Iznaga, a noted beauty of a quarter of a century ago. Hers was among the first of the prominent Anglo-American alliances. She was married to the late Duke of Manchester when he was the Viscount Mandeville. at Grace Church, New York, in May 1876. Upon the death, in New York, of her brother, Fernando Iznaga, In March 1901, she was bequeathed a fortune of about $3,000,000 while her two sisters and her mother were not mentioned in the will. She afterward provided liberally for them. Lady Llster-Kaye was Mrs. Natica Iznaga, and a third sister is Miss Emily Iznaga, who lives in Paris. The mother, wife of the late Don Antonio Iznaga del Valle, is living on her plantation near New Orleans. The present Duke of Manchester, who married Miss Helen Zimmerman, of Cincinnati, is a son of Consuelo, the Dowager Duchess. Although the late Antonio Iznaga was a native of the little village of Sancti Spiritus, in Cuba, the Iznagas are related to the noblest families in Spain. During the Ten Years' War their estates were confiscated and a large part of the family fortune was swept away, though it was later again built up in New York by the late Fernando Iznaga. NY Herald - 1/14/1904.

Her father, Señor Don Jose Antonio, comes of an old Castilian family, all of his relatives even now being residents of San Sebastian, Spain, while her mother, Madame del Valle, is a native of Sancti Spiritus, Cuba. The young lady herself was born in Havana, but has lived for some years, now, in her parents' handsome home on Fifth Avenue. Miss del Valle is of medium height, of almost Oriental slenderness and grace, has a rich, olive skin, and big, Spanish eyes, with the depth and mysterious charm of expression only those of her nation ever possess. A cousin of the Duchess of Manchester, she is said to have a full share of the wit, ambition, and beauty distinguishing all the women of the family.

      Se casó con su prima D.ª Luisa de Iznaga y Ruiz de Soto (Apodaca).

     

      Coronel del Ejercito Mambi.

     

      En el año 1840 se produce un incremento de la esclavitud en Ciego de Ávila, Cuba,  el Conde de Villamar y los hermanos José María y Antonio Modesto del Valle Iznaga se destacan como dueños de esclavos, los que trajeron gran cantidad de hombres, mujeres y jóvenes. Al arribar a sus propiedades bautizaron un total de 175, desde 1840-l861.

Ya por la segunda mitad de los años 60 del siglo XIX las contradicciones entre los propietarios criollos y las autoridades coloniales se agudizaban cada vez más, los altos impuestos y las distintas trabas impuestas por España hacían muy difícil la convivencia entre los mismos lo que conllevo a que en Octubre de 1868 se iniciara la lucha armada como única vía para romper con la dominación española.

Iznaga, con la circunstancia agravante de haberlos llevado a cabo un joven criado, educado y hecho maquinista por el Sr. Iznaga,  al mismo tiempo que la noble esposa de dicho señor protegía y salvaba de una cruel enfermedad á la madre de ese monstruo de ingratitud.

MUERTE DE UN TRAIDOR

A los 48 años de edad ha muerto en Nueva York,  a consecuencia de la gripe, José Antonio Iznaga, un rico cubano que fue expulsado por las autoridades españolas de la Gran Antillas.

Como todos los que han conspirado contra nuestra soberanía en Cuba se había nacionalizado en los Estados Unidos. Era primo hermano dé Consuelo Iznaga, duquesa viuda de Manchester, y cuyo hijo anuncian los periódicos ingleses que, hallándose arruinado, piensa debutar como actor en un teatro de Nueva York. También era primo del Conde de Lersundi, comandante de güerillas españolas en Cuba.

Los insurrectos le quemaron hace dos años una magnifica plantación. Fue acusado por las autoridades de auxiliar a los rebeldes y de facilitar noticias falsa a los correspóndales extranjeros en descredito del ejército  español, por lo cual fue expulsado de Cuba. Iznaga había presentado una reclamación contra España por daños causados en sus propiedades.

      Papers Relating to the Foreign Relations of the United States

By United States Dept.

No. 2517.] Consulate-general Of The United States,

Havana, June 19, 1895.

Sir: I have the honor to accompany herewith copy of a letter addressed to this consulate-general by three Cuban planters and landowners who are at the same time naturalized citizens of the United States, resident in the district of Sancti Spiritus of this island, inquiring as to what course of action they must follow in case of threats being made to them by the insurgents to destroy their property unless certain bounties are paid.

They state that they have learned that the insurgents have forbidden the extraction of cattle from the farms, and fearing loss, ask if they have the right to apply to the Spanish authorities for the protection of their property, to conduct their cattle to the nearest market, etc., and in case of refusal, under what circumstances and in what form they can make protest for damages.

The parties desire to receive full information on this point from the Department of State, to which I respectfully refer their letter.

I will add that Mr. Antonio M. Iznaga is a member of a well-known and wealthy Cuban family, and that he has been registered as an American citizen over twenty years. The other subscribers, Messrs. Jose Rafael de los Reyes and Eduardo Alvarez Cerice, are brothers-in-law to Mr. Iznaga, and acquired citizenship in 1890, and have since resided in Sancti Spiritus.

A number of questions of the same tenor have been verbally made to this office by naturalized citizens residing and holding property in this island, and it is desirable to have the instructions of the Department on the subject in order to give to such an authoritative answer. 1 am, etc.,

J. A. Springer,

Vice- Consul- General.

[Subinulosurc.]

     

      American citizens to Mr. Williams.

Sancti Spiritus, June I5, 1895.

Sir: We, the undersigned American citizens and property holders in several municipal districts of this island, having received intelligence that the insurgents have forbidden the extraction of cattle from the farms; and, furthermore, seeing through the newspapers the wanton destruction of property throughout the island, with marked tendencies to anarchy, apply to you for information on the following points, viz:

Have we the right to apply to the Spanish authorities for such forces as would be required to safely conduct our cattle to the nearest market!

Should the Spanish authorities deny our request, what shall we do?

In what form are we to protest, and under what circumstances can we make good our claims to damages.

We furthermore understand that in certain cases the insurgents have threatened to destroy property unless a certain bounty is paid. What are we to do in case such a threat is made to us?

We would be thankful for full information, if possible, through the Department of State, on these subjects, and with much respect, etc.,

Jose Rafael Reyes.

      [InclosuioL'in No.363.]

Mr. Uhl to Mr. Sprinyer.

No. 1098.] Department Of State,

Washington, July 1, 1895

SlB: Your dispatch. No. 2517, of the 19th instant, has been received. You therewith forward copy of a letter received by you from three Cuban landowners, American citizens, and residents of Sancti Spiritus, making inquiries concerning the protection of their property from seizure or destruction by insurgents. In particular the writers state that they have learned that the insurgents have forbidden the removal of cattle from the farms, and ask if they have the right to apply to the Spanish authorities for the protection of their property, in conducting their cattle to the nearest market, and, in case of refusal, under what circumstances and in what form they can make protest for damages.

It is a generally accepted principle of international law that a sovereign government is not ordinarily responsible to alien residents for injuries that they may receive within its territories from insurgents whose conduct it can not control. Within the limits of usual effective control law- abiding residents have a right to be protected in the ordinary affairs of life and intercourse, subject, of course, to military necessities, should their property be situated within the zone of active operations. The Spanish authorities are reported to be using strenuous endeavors to prevent the class of spoliations which the writers apprehend, and notification of any particularly apprehended danger from the insurgents would probably be followed by the adoption of special safeguards by the authorities. In the event, however, of injury, a claim would necessarily have to be founded upon averment and reasonable proof that the responsible officers of the Spanish Government, being in a position to prevent such injury, have failed to use due diligence to do so.

It is impossible to give more precise instructions upon the hypothetical case presented. Should injury be actually suffered, and the facts be fully represented, this Department would be in a position to determine its duty, if anything, in the premises.

I am, etc., Edwin F. Uhl,

Acting Secretary.

      Fundación y Construcción del Asilo San José (1916 - 1928)

Dr. Manuel Casas Rodríguez.

Para las semblanzas de los inspiradores principales de esta obra, la Sra. Concepción Iznaga, viuda de Reyes y el Dr. José García Cañizárez , partió de la entrevista al Dr. Luis de la Aguilera y la de comunicación personal que éste le remitió sobre el tema a la familia Iznaga, ya que está unido por lazos familiares a sus descendientes. Estos datos se completaron con los que aportó , Pastor del Río, y la revista Sancti Spíritus. A Don Pepe, como le conocían los espírituanos, llegó el autor a través de la información suministrada por El Fígaro, Segundo Marín García y documentos de la época. Esta figura está tratada en artículo inédito del que escribe estas líneas.

En abril de 1916 llegaron a Sancti Spíritus dos Hermanas de la Caridad, Sor Isabel y Sor Ramona del Corazón de Jesús  para tratar de instalar un asilo que acogiera a los ancianos desamparados. Al llamado de estas Hermanas respondió una digna espirituana: la Sra. Concepción Iznaga García viuda de Reyes, la cual puso a disposición de la obra recursos financieros, su influencia y esfuerzo personal.

La Sra. Iznaga procedía de una familia trinitaria que atesoró grandes riquezas obtenidas en la explotación de ingenios y latifundios. Algunos de los miembros de esta familia se identificaron con la corona española, otros como su abuelo, José Antonio Iznaga Borrell y los hermanos de éste, José Aniceto y Antonio Abad, fueron luchadores de la libertad de Cuba.

Por indicación de Doña Concha, como la llamaban los espirituanos, las Hermanas de la Caridad, alquilaron la finca "Santa Elena" por un período de dos años prorrogables para otros dos. Allí se inauguró el asilo el 28 de abril de 1916. En ese momento atendía a 20 ancianos. Esta fecha, como se ha señalado, es la que sitúa La Lucha y apunta Luis F. del Moral. no encontramos referencia a la fundación en la prensa de la época ni documentación al respecto. Sólo apareció en el periódico El Comercio, el día 14 de junio, en el artículo "Por los niños pobres", una referencia al asilo que señala "... se ha atendido con altruismo ejemplar a la creación y sostenimiento..."  de la obra.

La instalación corrió por cuenta de la Sra. Iznaga que tenía como aspiración mayor dotarlo de un local propio y adecuado, por lo que se comenzaron rápidamente los trámites.

De Concepción Iznaga reseñó la revista Sancti Spiritus, con motivo de su fallecimiento el 23 de febrero de 1934 "ha dejado" profunda tristeza entre sus deudos y dentro del pueblo por cuyo bien siempre se interesaba, especialmente por la construcción del Asilo de Ancianos de esta ciudad". Y agrega: "Fue una de las pocas personas acomodadas que daba de los suyos al

destino de los pobres".

     

      Al morir su padre José María Iznaga del Valle, heredo la sortija que Simón Bolívar le dio a José Aniceto Iznaga Borrell en

 Caracas en 1827, para que se lo entregara a su hermano Antonio Abad Iznaga Borrell, montado un camafeo de ágata, con una

      NY Herald 9/4/1890

A wedding of more than ordinary interest took place at the City Hall yesterday morning. Alderman Roche officiating.

At about eleven o'clock the rotunda loungers were rather surprised to see a party of four gentlemen and one handsome young lady enter the corridor and inquire for the earthly place where marriages are made. The party was evidently foreigners. Despite their swarthy features it was plainly apparent that they were "blue bloods" of the most approved pattern. They were shown into the Alderman's Chamber and Alderman Roche, who had most probably witnessed their arrival and laid plans accordingly, was summoned. The eldest gentleman of the party informed the city parent that the young lady and the youngest gentleman desired to be united in marriage. The Alderman quickly performed the service. The contracting parties proved to be Miss Maria de los Angeles Iznaga of New Orleans, a cousin of the Duchess of Manchester, and Señor Eduardo Alvarez, a son of a very wealthy sugar planter, whose plantation is at Cardenas, Cuba. The other gentlemen present were the bride's father, J. M. Iznaga; Dr. Carlos Aguirre and J. Rafael de los Reyes, of No. 337 West Fourteenth St. The latter two were witnesses.

When the ceremony had been concluded the bride and her father were driven to the Hotel Albert, where they are stopping, and the groom and his friends returned to his temporary residence, No. 237 West Fourteenth street, to prepare for the ceremony at the church, as according to Spanish custom two ceremonies are always performed- one according to civil law and the other at church.

The second ceremony was performed by the Rev. Father McKinnen, at the Church of St. Francis Xavier. on West Sixteenth street, at seven o'clock in the evening. The wedding, although considered a private one, was a very elaborate affair, and about one hundred guests were present. The party arrived at the appointed time. The bride, a tall, handsome brunette, leaned on the arm of her father, and the groom was accompanied by J. Iznaga, Jr. who acted as best man.

The bride was attired in a handsome white silk dress, cut decollete. She wore diamond ornaments and orange flowers, and carried in her hand a bouquet of white roses. Miss Maria Reyes, the only bridesmaid, also wore white silk and carried white roses. The bride passed up the aisle on the arm of her father to the front of the altar, where the groom and best man were in waiting. Father McKinnen read the service and Señor Iznaga gave the bride away. A reception was held at the Hotel Albert after the ceremony, and then the young couple retired to the Grand Central Hotel, where they will remain for several days. On Saturday they will take the steamer for Tampa, Fla. where they will spend the honeymoon, and then they will leave for Cardenas, there to reside. Both families are very wealthy and of high social standing. Señor Iznaga is an uncle of Fernando Iznaga, the Wall street banker, and of the Duchess of Manchester. His home is in New Orleans, where the newly married couple met two years ago. It is purely a love match, 'tis said, but it is one of those convenient ones where Cupid succeeded in planting his arrows in targets acceptable to the relations of both sides.

LORD MANDEVILLE'S WEDDING.; A BRILLIANT AFFAIR AT GRACE CHURCH-- LORD MANDEVILLE, OF ENGLAND, AND MISS IZNAGA, OF THE CITY, JOINED IN WEDLOCK--THE CEREMONY, THE GUESTS, AND THE PRESENTS.

One of the most brilliant affairs of the season was the marriage, at Grace Church, yesterday, of George Victor Drogo, Viscount Mandeville, to Miss Consuelo Iznaga. Lord Mandeville is an English nobleman, who has visited this country several times, and whose present visit has extended over two or three months. Lately he has been brought before the public by the interest he has taken in polo and by his skill in playing that game. His father is the seventh Duke of Manchester and his lineage is that of a brilliant family. He is 23 yrs. of age. Miss Iznaga is the daughter of a Spanish gentleman who for the past 20 or 30 yrs. has been a prominent merchant in this City and is well known in business circles. The wedding took place in Grace Church, on Broadway, near Tenth St., at 3:30 yesterday afternoon.

     

      La famosa heredera norteamericana Consuelo Vanderbilt, que después fuera la duquesa de Marlborough, recibió el nombre de Consuelo porque la mejor amiga de su madre, Alva Vanderbilt, era la famosa "socialité" Consuelo Iznaga Clement, vizcondesa por su casamiento con el vizconde de Mandeville, Sir George Victor Drogo Montagu. Consuelo Iznaga Clement era hija de un acaudalado cubano de Sancti Spiritus, llamado Antonio Modesto Iznaga y del Valle. Durante la guerra de independencia entre Cuba y España, Antonio se fue a radicar a Estados Unidos donde se casó e inició una familia, bautizando a su hija con un nombre hispano.

     

      Yznaga (sic) Avenue in Newport, RI is named after her father Antonio Modesto Iznaga y del Valle.

"Lost Newport" by Paul Miller. REEF POINT -(1865) This ambitious italianate timber-framed was built for Cuban planter Antonio Modesto Iznaga y del Valle from Louisiana, in whose honor the small private street off the east side of Bellevue Avenue was named. Iznaga's daughter Consuelo was a childhood friend of Alva Erskine Smith, subsequently Mrs. William K. Vanderbilt who spent much time in this cottage as a girl. Alva Vanderbilt's sister Mary Virginia Smith married Consuelo's brother Fernando, and Alva's daughter was named in her honor following Consuelo's aristocratic marriage to Viscount Manderville later Duke of Manchester.

     

      Maria Consuelo Iznaga Clement was a beautiful Southern Belle who met a Duke who promised the world, but gave her nothing but heartache and pain. She was an idealist and a woman who flouted convention during her lifetime. She was born in NYC in 1853. She was the daughter of Don Antonio Iznaga y del Valle, who came to America from Cuba. Her mother was a beautiful woman from Louisiana, Ellen Clement. They made their home in Louisiana replete with slaves and servants and a plantation. Her mother also flouted convention by showing her legs and smoking cigars.

Consuelo received a continental education, for she had gone to Paris to be finished at the court of Eugenie de Montijo, also a beautiful woman of American and Spanish ancestry. She came back to America in the late 1870s after the upheaval in France. While her father was prospering, she was almost disgraced at a party when she didn't dress appropriately for the occasion. Sometime in mid 1880s, she had met the future Duke of Manchester at a resort in Upstate New York. A few months later, they were married. Among the bridal attendants was her friend, Alva Eskine Smith (Vanderbilt) whose daughter, Consuelo Vanderbilt, married well into the British Aristocracy. Consuelo and the Duke had three children, twin daughters and an heir. Her husband was a philanderer and a big spender who was often in debt.

Consuelo Iznaga's life has been a mystery to many because so few people knew about her life as a bohemian Southern Belle who became an English Duchess at the turn of the century. She had been immortalized by American writer Edith Wharton as Conchita Closson, a very exotic young woman of Brazilian origin. She also received props from Canadian writer Marian Fowler, who did an extensive biography on her in her 1994 book, "A Gilded Cage." It's about time to give Consuelo her due. This biography is about this remarkable lady from Louisiana who met a handsome English Duke in New York and eventually married him. Her life with him in England is not a fairy tale but she made the most out of it, for she became a famous society host in her own right.

     

      Miss Maria Consuelo Iznaga Clement was born in NYC, NY in 1853, eight years before the war between the states. She's the second child of Antonio Modesto Iznaga y del Valle and Ellen Clement. Her father emigrated from Cuba and has connections to several Spanish aristocratic houses. Her mother hailed from Upstate New York. Her mother came from an old New England family. Antonio and Ellen had four children. They made Ravenswood and New York City their homes. For all their connections, New York society refused to accept them as their own. Ellen had been denied invitations to society events and that made her a little mad and eventually drove her and her family to Paris, where they were well received. It was there Consuelo was introduced to Empress Eugenie de Montijo. Eugenie, like Consuelo, was half Spanish, half American and very beautiful. Eugenie presided over a brilliant court in Paris. Having been wronged by her unfaithful husband, she sought solace in friends, clothing, and decoration. Consuelo and Eugenie became lifelong friends. It wasn't going to last long, for a war was to put an end to such fun and Consuelo and her family returned to the states in 1870.

The Iznaga family retreated at the plantation of Ravenswood. Ravenswood is not an elaborate plantation house you may see down south. It's an unpretentious two-story wooden house along the banks of the Mississippi. But her memories in Paris still stayed on her mind for years to come. Around 1873, Miss Consuelo had made a scene at a ball held in a nearby town of Natchez. The Iznagas had made a point of taking their lovely daughters to a ball. They wanted to improve their social standing among the affluent citizens of Natchez. What had happened was that Consuelo wanted to dress as she pleased, the women of the town didn't like what she wore and the men at the ball were embarrased to be seen with her. One of the male escorts tied a blue ribbon over her dress so that she could be presentable. Several years later, the Iznagas traveled to Saratoga, New York to introduce their daughters to society as well as getting husbands for them. It was there Consuelo met a dashing, but impoverished Duke from England. His name was George Victor Drogo Montagu, the future Duke of Manchester. They were married in a lavish ceremony at Grace Church in New York City in 1876. Although the wedding made front page news at the New York Times, she and her family were dismissed as "nobodies" by the NYT editorial. She received no dowry for the wedding from her father. The wedding had taken New York society by surprise. Back then New York society was governed by the Knickerbockers, old families of Dutch and British stock who led quiet, orderly lives and eschews showiness of material wealth. They most certainly frown upon lavish wedding ceremonies such as those of Consuelo and the future Duke.

On the other side of the ocean, the future Duke's family wasn't thrilled about the match between him and Consuelo. He didn't think his daughter-in-law was good enough for his eldest son and heir. For one thing, he didn't receive a dowry from her family, for her family thought he would take care of her and that her father couldn't afford to siphon off his wealth at the time, although he gave his second daughter $50,000 dowry upon marrying Lord Lister-Kaye in 1882. He wondered whether his son had married a red Indian woman, for her behavior didn't conform to the ideal of a proper young English lady for she sang country songs to the tune of the banjo, smoked cigars, behaving in a casual way as she would back home in Mississippi of her youth. He also wondered whether she was truly wealthy for she didn't bring any dowry to the marriage. Their marriage started off as being very loving until her husband resumed his womanizing ways. He preferred lower class women for they reminded him of the various maids and nannies that worked at his family estate growing up. He especially visited bordellos and spent what little money his long-suffering wife had at the time of her marriage. Consuelo died in 1909 and is buried in Kimbolton along with her husband and children.

     

      The Manchester Tiara was made by Cartier, Paris, in 1903 to the order of Consuelo, Dowager Duchess of Manchester. Cartier's records note that she supplied over a thousand brilliant-cut diamonds and more than 400 rose-cut diamonds, while Cartier supplied further rose-cut diamonds and the paste stones which make up the scrolls at the end of each side.

This tiara of graduated flaming hearts and C scrolls was inspired by a vision of France before the Revolution. Louis Cartier encouraged his designers to sketch 18th-century ironwork and architectural ornament in Paris and Versailles, and to study engraved jewellery designs.

     

      Consuelo, Duchess of Manchester (1853-1909), was the daughter of Antonio Iznaga del Valle, of Ravenswood, Louisiana, New York and Cuba. Consuelo was taken by her mother to Paris where her American friends included Jennie Jerome, later to be the mother of Winston Churchill and Alva Smith, later to be Alva Vanderbilt. Consuelo married George Victor Drogo Montagu, Viscount Mandeville, the future 8th Duke of Manchester, in 1876. The Duke of Portland recorded that she "took Society completely by storm by her beauty, wit and vivacity and it was soon at her very pretty feet". The Complete Peerage quotes a contemporary who wrote that "no one knows how gloriously beautiful a woman can be who did not see the Duchess when she was thirty". She became a friend of Queen Alexandra to whom she bequeathed a bracelet on her death in 1909. A letter to the Times described her as "one of the first of the American ladies who married into the great English families, and who brought to this country that rare combination of high intelligence, a sunny nature and uncommon personal charm".

THE DOWAGER-DUCHESS OF MANCHESTER.

Within the same charmed circle, the next lady we meet is Consuelo, Duchess of Manchester, the Duchess of Devonshire's daughter-in-law. Consuelo, Duchess of Manchester, belongs to one of the two sets of American sisters, the Iznagas and the Jeromes, who took London by storm in the seventies. She still retains much of the beauty which subjugated Viscount Mandeville in earlier days, although of late her health has not been very good. After years of comparative impecuniosity, she recently blossomed forth into a wealthy woman, as her brother, the late Mr. Fernando Iznaga, left her a large fortune. She has behaved with great generosity toward her sisters and her son, and has still enough left to lead a very luxurious existence and entertain charmingly at her beautiful house in Portman Square.

The Duchess of Manchester's little dinners' are frequently honored by the presence of King Edward, and as she always brings the right people together, her guests are never bored. The loss of her two daughters in the flower of their age so embittered her life that for some time she was seen but little in London. Now she goes about again, although moving so strictly within her own social orbit that she is not seen at more than half a dozen houses during the season. The duchess has been a widow for more than thirteen years, but if she has never married again it has certainly not been for want of suitors.

     

      St. Andrews Church, Kimbolton, Ireland - Tiffany Window.- "Twins"

In the south chapel there is a stained glass window by American glass artist Louis Comfort Tiffany, son of the founder of Tiffany's Jewellers in New York. The window depicts the twin daughters of Consuelo Iznaga, an American of Cuban descent and widow of the 8th Duke of Manchester. It was made in 1901. It was commissioned by Consuelo the Duchess of Manchester to commemorate her twin daughters Jacqueline Mary Alva and Alice Eleanor Louise, and they are pictured in the central panel. Tragically Consuelo the dowager Duchess of Manchester lost her husband age 39 in 1892, Jacqueline in 1895 at the age of 16 from malaria, and Alice, age 21 in 1900 from tuberculosis.

     

      LONDON, Jan. 26.1908 - NY Times - Consuelo, Duchess of Manchester, and her sister, Lady Lister-Kaye, sailed on the Lusitania yesterday for the purpose of attending the funeral of their mother, Mrs. Iznaga, who died suddenly of pneumonia in the South.

     

      LONDON, Dec. 20. -- Among the bequests contained in the will of Consuelo, Duchess of Manchester, which was filed for probate today, is one of "My ruby and diamond bracelet which I would ask her Majesty Queen Alexandra to be graciously pleased to accept as a token of my respectful affection and regard."

      336      ii          Jacqueline Mary15 Montagu e Iznaga , born 27 Nov 1879 in Kimbolton Castle, Kimbolton, England; died 15 Mar 1895 in Rome, Italy.   Notes: Lady Jacqueline Mary 'May' Alva Montagu - 11/27/1879 - 3/15/1895. "The Manchester twins were the two most beautiful and delicate girls imaginable. They both died before the world of men or worry could add a line of sorrow to their angel faces". - Sir Shane Leslie. "The Harmsworth Volume 1". Unlike most Americans who have married Englishmen, Miss Consuelo Iznaga had only once paid a flying visit to London before her marriage. Her mother, who had been a noted belle of New Orleans in the fifties, on her marriage to a distinguished Spaniard went to Cuba, where the future British duchess was born in the little village of Saint Espiritu. As has been the case with almost every family connected with Cuba, the Iznagas sustained great losses, which led to their settling once more in America, and it was there that Miss Iznaga first met Lord Mandeville, then travelling in the States. When visiting at her father's house he fell ill, and was very kindly nursed and entertained till his recovery. The engagement excited exceptional interest owing to the fact that Lady Mandeville, as she became, was the first Anglo-American peeress. In spite of the fact that after their marriage Lord and Lady Mandeville had no London house, the latter soon took a very prominent place in society; she became a great favorite both with the Prince and with the Princess of Wales, and she was constantly included in the lists of house" parties invited to meet their Royal Highnesses. Many years of Lady Mandeville's married life were spent in Ireland. She was devoted to her three children, twin daughters and one son, known during his childhood as Lord Kimbolton; and though she often paid flying visits to London, she did not revisit America for a long time. On the death of the seventh Duke of Manchester, in 1890, Lady Mandeville became at once the reigning Duchess of Manchester, and she was for a time the only American duchess in the peerage; during the two years which elapsed before the duke's death, the duchess gave a series of splendid entertainments both in her London house in Great Cumberland Street, and at Kimbolton Castle, in Huntingdonshire, the splendid place which was, for so many years, the home of poor Katherine of Aragon after her divorce from Henry VIII. Her mother-in-law, now the Duchess of Devonshire, always proved a firm and loyal friend to her son's beautiful American wife; and on the death of the eighth duke, which occurred in the August of 1892, it was his mother who persuaded the young duchess that she should continue to live in London, and not retire, as she thought of doing, to her son's Irish seat. The greatest grief of the Duchess of Manchester's life was the death of Lady Mary Montagu, one of her beautiful twin daughters, whose charming portraits by Lady Granby and Mr. Edward Hughes have made their features familiar. Since her death, which occurred very suddenly in Rome, the duchess has lived very quietly until this spring, only emerging from her retirement in order to introduce her young daughter to society.

      337      iii         Alice Eleanor15 Montagu e Iznaga , born 27 Nov 1879 in Kimbolton Castle, Kimbolton, England; died 10 Jan 1900 in Davos-Platz, Switzerland.   Notes: Lady Alice Eleanor 'Nell' Louise Montagu - 11/27/1879 - 1/10/1900. "The Manchester twins were the two most beautiful and delicate girls imaginable. They both died before the world of men or worry could add a line of sorrow to their angel faces". Sir Shane Leslie. LONDON, Jan. 10 - Lady Alice Montagu, sister of the Duke of Manchester, died today at Davos-Platz, a health resort in Switzerland. She had been suffering from consumption. The Duke of Manchester was summoned from America to her bedside several weeks ago. Until she was stricken by the illness which has now proved fatal the Lady Alice Eleanor Louise Montagu occupied a unique position in English society. Never before her time had a young unmarried woman become one of the recognized leaders of that society, and the fact that the only advantages she possessed were good birth and beauty for, as is well known, the means possessed by her family are small, made the fact still more surprising. Lady Alice was a beauty of the typical British type, many persons declared that she was the most beautiful Englishwoman of her time; others said that she was only second to the late Duchess of Leinster, and it is a curious fact that both these women were carried off within five years by consumption. The death of Lady Alice Montagu leaves the present Duke of Manchester the only surviving child of the eight Duke, who married, in 1876, Miss Consuelo Iznaga, daughter of Don Antonio Iznaga del Valle of Cuba and Ellen Clement of Ravenswood, La. The death of her only surviving daughter will doubtless be a terrible shock to Consuelo, Duchess of Manchester. The third child, a twin sister of the Lady Alice, died also from consumption, at Rome in 1895. Lady Alice showed the first symptoms of the disease soon after her sister's death. Lady Alice was born about twenty-one years ago. From the earliest years she promised to become a woman of exquisite beauty, and this promise was abundantly fulfilled before she was seventeen years old. Her hair was of a golden bronze color, with a natural wave that displayed its beauty to the utmost; her eyes were of rare deep violet hue, and she had dark eyebrows, while her complexion was as delicate and clear as a piece of Sevres porcelain. To these qualities of beauty were added the charming vivacity and bright wit which made her such a favorite in society. LONDON, Jan. 15 - A memorial service in honor of Lady Alice Montagu, sister of the Duke of Manchester, who died Jan. 10 at Davos-Platz, Switzerland, was held at the Chapel Royal, St. James's Palace, this afternoon. The Sub-Dean, the Rev. Edgar Sheppard, pronounced the panegyric. The service was fully choral. Among those present were the Hon. Sidney Greville, Equerry to the Prince of Wales, representing His Royal Highness; the Countess of Essex, the Countess of Kintore, the Countess Carrington, Lady Dudley, Lord Rowton, Viscount Curzon, and Arnold Morley. The interment occurred simultaneously at Kimbolton. Lady Alice was buried beside the remains of her twin sister. The chief mourners were the Duchess of Manchester, the Duchess of Hamilton, Lady Alice Stanley, and other relatives.

      LONDON, Jan. 26.1908 - NY Times - Consuelo, Duchess of Manchester, and her sister, Lady Lister-Kaye, sailed on the Lusitania yesterday for the purpose of attending the funeral of their mother, Mrs. Iznaga, who died suddenly of pneumonia in the South.

     

      LONDON, March 27.1909 - NY Times - Lady Lister-Kaye's dinner this week for the Prince and Princess of Wales was a very great success. Although one hears less of her perhaps than of Consuelo, Duchess of Manchester, she shares with her sister many brilliant social gifts. She looked her very best in a handsome white-dress-worked in the corsage with cordonnets of satin and crystals and her jewels were beautiful.
