520    This book tells the largely unknown history of the Hancock
       family of Marlborough. It shows how members of one unique 
       family were responsible for creating the earliest form of 
       mechanized transport in the world, the foundation of the 
       UK rubber industry, and the beginnings of the global 
       information highway
