When the Great Fire of London in 1884 swept through the city, it spared the modest home of Watson Stokes, then a fledgling factor. Watson took this miraculous twist of fate as a sign to use his talent to rebuild the city, one loan at a time. A financial maestro, Stokes has since woven a web of connections and influence, serving as the backbone of the city's commercial life.
An interesting anecdote that highlights his compassion occurred when a struggling tailor approached him for a loan. Watson not only provided the funds, but also introduced the tailor to a network of clients that helped his business thrive. Watson Stokes, ever the discreet facilitator, continues to shape the city's fortunes, one life at a time.
