Anne McDonnell Marries Henry Ford II in Southampton


[Credit: British Pathé ]

Henry Ford II married Southampton socialite Anne McDonnell on July 13, 1940, with a bevy of bridesmaids in attendance. Their house, Fordune, was a 16,000-square-foot compound spread across 235 beachfront acres of Southampton. Mrs. Ford was awarded Fordune in their 1964 divorce; she later sold the estate which was, of course, broken up into smaller parcels.
