"After all the family silver having been sold long ago,
he pawned what was left to his name"
is this sentence correct?

or should it be " After all the family silver gave been sold ~

    Perhaps just drop your "After": All the family silver having been sold long ago, he pawned what little he had left.

    (Not a big fan of "what was left to his name" :))
