Once upon a time, pimentos, peanut butter, and watercress made the perfect sandwich. Sandwiches are widely eaten but only the ingredients change. All this comes to one man who happened to be an Earl. The main is the 4th Earl of Sandwich. However, before then there were people who used to put meat between their bread slices. The Passover celebrations in the first century involved people putting the lamb meat between the bread which was usually unleavened. The practice changes in the Middle Age with people adopting the open style sandwich. Thick stale bread was used as a base where vegetable and meat were piled. The Dutch popularly served their bread piled with butter, fish, and meat. The town of Sandwich is in the southern coast of the UK. This literally translates to a town built on sandy soil. “Wich” means a vicinity, a place or dwelling. It happened that the 1st Earl of Sandwich was actually meant to become the Earl of Portsmouth. The title change was supposed to be in a honor of the Earl by the town. When he was given the title, he happened to be the commander of a small naval fleet operating off the coast near Sandwich. There is no other connection between this town the family the Earl came from.
Sandwiches were not popular until they were brought to the limelight by the 4th Earl of Sandwich. His morals were wanting and he was never one to turn down a bribe. He went ahead to become the First Lord of Admiralty and people all over the land knew about his incompetence and corruption. This is the person who made the American Revolution what it was. He let the British Navy stay in Europe’s waters because he was afraid the French would attack. This mistake was major and his shortcomings as a commander were highly criticized. The 4th Earl of Sandwich belonged to the Hell Fire Club too. The members would drink, whoring and gamble and they had to be from the elite families in Britain. The members also embraced Satanic worship. The 4th Earl of Sandwich was happy to embrace black masses and anti-religious rituals. Because he was controlling the Navy and friends with the King, he was fully protected. One of the Hell Fire Club members, John Wilkes, was displeased with the black mass and satanic rituals. He dressed a baboon in a devil suit to make the events more interested. You can discover more about the birth of the sandwich here.
