Editorial Reviews


"In this gracefully written account of four generations of the Livingston family, Kierner . . . documents the metamorphosis of a rich family into a genteel one."―American Historical Review

"Cynthia A. Kierner has produced a marvelous study of New York's Livingston family that shows them both as individuals and as representatives of an Anglo-American gentry that emerged, stabilized, and retreated between the arrival in New York of the first Robert Livingston, in 1675, and the death of his great-grandson, Robert R. Livingston, in 1790. . . . Traders and Gentlefolk is biography the way it should be―informative, illustrative, and entertaining."―New York History
