Hamilton McKown Twombly was a successful American businessman husband to Florence Adele Vanderbilt Twombly. In 1892, Twombly and his wife were both included in Ward McAllister's "Four Hundred", purported to be an index of New York's best families led by Mrs. Astor, as published in The New York Times. His wife survived him by 42 years and his legacy is the 10th largest residential home in America - Florham Estate (which is now Fairleigh Dickinson University).
Hamilton Twombly was a shrewd investor and astute businessman, often advising his father in law and Florence’s brothers on the management of their railroads and investments. When he died in 1910, not only did he leave his wife Florence richer than her found her, her left her richer than most of her family, no easy feat.
