'John Penn and Sons of Greenwich tells the story of a three generation family firm of the Victorian era within its historical context. Founded by a millwright from Somerset it quickly became one of the main engineering firms in the London area. Under the second John Penn it became a leading supplier of marine steam engines to the Royal Navy in the transition from sail to steam. He became an important figure in his profession; the third son became a MP. The Epilogue tells of the family's contrasting 20th century role of 60 years service in the Royal Households'.
