PENRHYN, GEORGE SHOLTO GORDON DOUGLAS-PENNANT, and BARON (1836-1907), was the son of Colonel Edward Gordon Douglas (1800-1886), brother of the 19th earl of Morton, who, through his wife, Juliana, elder daughter and coheir of George Hay Dawkins-Pennant, of Penrhyn Castle, Carnarvon, had large estates in Wales and elsewhere, and was created Baron Penrhyn in 1866.
A keen sportsman, a benevolent landlord, a kind and considerate employer, Lord Penrhyn came of a proud race, and was himself of an imperious disposition.
Lord Penrhyn refused to recognize the union or its officials, though he was willing to consider any grievances from individual quarrymen, and a protracted struggle ensued, in which his determination was invincible.

GEORGE SHOLTO GORDON DOUGLAS-PENNANT PENRHYN, 2nd Baron (1836-1907), was the son of Colonel Edward Gordon Douglas (1800-1886), brother of the 19th earl of Morton, who, through his wife, Juliana, elder daughter and coheir of George Hay Dawkins-Pennant, of Penrhyn Castle, Carnarvon, had large estates in Wales and elsewhere, and was created Baron Penrhyn in 1866.
benevolent landlord, a kind and considerate employer, Lord Penrhyn came of a proud race, and was himself of an imperious disposition.
The new men and new methods were, however, not to the taste of the trade unionist leaders of the quarrymen, and in 1897, when the "new unionism" was rampant in labour questions throughout England, a strike was deliberately fomented.

 Financial structure
Lord Penrhyn is not typical of the early capitalist period in the development of the industry because the predominating form of industrial organisation was the small common-law partnership which leased the land from the private landowner or the Crown, and whose fixed and working capital was supplied collectively by the partners.
It was not until 1824 when a horse tramway was constructed at a cost of £93,000 from the quarries to Port Dinorwic that the concern began to expand rapidly; in 1826, 800 quarrymen produced 20,000 tons of slate in the Dinorwic Quarries.
In the Penrhyn quarries the landlord was never replaced by new industrial entrepreneurs; in the Dinorwic quarries the slate resources were only worked on a comparatively large scale when the landlord took over the quarry himself; in both quarries they have remained in possession ever since.

 Wales - Penrhyn Castle
Around 1770, Lord Penrhyn built a Gothic style castle and then about 50 years later this was then engulfed along with the Medieval manor house by the existing castle.
Penrhyn Castle is a great example of early 19th century neo-Norman architecture funded by the vast fortunes built from the profits of Welsh slate and Jamaican sugar and the West Indian slave trade.
Richard Pennant was a highly skilled entrepreneurial Liverpool merchant and owner of five Jamaican sugar plantations and made his fortune through this and the quarry industry, which was run by his stuard William Williams, (1738-1817) on a purely capitalistic basis, and resulted in permanent changes to the infrastructure of the industry.

The nearby Penrhyn Slate Quarries at Bethesda, now off-limits to visitors, form the largest open-cast system in the world, with a huge pit a mile long and 1200 ft deep hewn out of the terraces.
A feature of the stupendous castle is the great slate bed, weighing some four tons, but there are many more attractions, including the Great Hall, the Ebony Room, and the Industrial Railway Museum in the stable yard, and the Doll Museum (containing some 1000 dolls in national costumes of countries around the world).
