Regency Personalities Series
In my attempts to provide us with the details of the Regency, today I continue with one of the many period notables.

Today, short and sweet since it is the end of 2012. Happy New Year all.

Henry Pierrepoint

A Dandy, he was one of the four to host the ball at Waiter’s Club in July of 1813 at which Beau Brummell asked aloud of Lord Alvanley, “Who’s your fat friend?” This of course was George, the Prince of Wales and the Prince Regent. The other hosts were Alvanley and Henry Mildmay. George had greeted Alvanley and Pierrepoint but snubbed, the cut direct, Mildmay and Brummell. The cut and the snub had been brewing for two years, since 1811. After the slight, Brummell was cast from the Regent’s set for good.

(DWW-Pierrepont (no i) is the family name of the Earls of Manvers. There is the third son of the 1st Earl who would have been about the right age when all this happened, in his early thirties, Henry Manvers Pierrepont, but I can’t see if they are the same man. To be a Dandy, it took a great deal of wealth. Not something one could do on a hundred pounds a year so there might be a connection there.)

TWO PEAS IN A POD

Two Peas in a Pod has now passed the exclusivity to Amazon test and is available in wider release, electronically (digitally) for other ereaders now. We sold a few copies on Amazon but nothing to warrant an exclusivity period. Amazon is too big and too full of itself.

Two Peas in a Pod is still available as a Trade paperback click here to order Regency Assembly Press.

$3.99 for an electronic copy. The Trade Paperback, due to publishing costs and the cut that Amazon takes continue to see a Trade Paperback costing $15.99 (The much hyped royalties that we writers are supposed to get is nowhere near what the news reports say. Most of that price is taken by Amazon.)

TWO PEAS IN A POD

978-0-9829989-3-9

Love is something that can not be fostered by deceit even should one’s eyes betray one’s heart.

Two brothers that are so close in appearance that only a handful have ever been able to tell them apart. The Earl of Kent, Percival Francis Michael Coldwell is only older than his brother, Peregrine Maxim Frederick Coldwell by 17 minutes. They may have looked as each other, but that masked how they were truthfully quite opposite to one another.

For Percy, his personality was one that he was quite comfortable with and more than happy to let Perry be of a serious nature. At least until he met Veronica Hamilton, the daughter of Baron Hamilton of Leith. She was only interested in a man who was serious.

Once more, Peregrine is obliged to help his older brother by taking his place, that the Earl may woo the young lady who has captured his heart. That is, until there is one who captures Peregrine’s heart as well.

Regency Personalities Series
In my attempts to provide us with the details of the Regency, today I continue with one of the many period notables.

John Ireland
September 8 1761-September 2 1842

PastedGraphic-2012-12-30-08-33.jpg

John Ireland is shown in the picture above carrying the Crown of the King of England, which he did twice, once for George IV, and then for George’s brother William IV.

John was an English Anglican priest who served as Dean of Westminster from 1816 until his death. He was theologically and politically conservative and he was generous with the considerable riches he acquired over his career. He made large donations to his home town. Oxford University sought his permission during his life to put on display a bust of him by Sir Francis Leggatt Chantrey. Ireland established scholarships at the University and in his will left a fortune 10,000 pounds to establish the post of Dean Ireland’s Professor of the Exegesis of Holy Scripture.

He was born the son of Thomas Ireland the butcher from Ashburton in Devon. His mother was Elizabeth. He was taught at the grammar school there before he went to the University of Oxford where he matriculated in 1779 at Oriel College. He received he Bachelor of Arts in 1783, then his Master of Arts in 1810 as well as his Bachelor and Doctor of Divinity that year. He was ordained a priest in the Church of England in 1783 and was a curate in Ashburton for a time before travelling abroad as the tutor to the son of Sir James Wright. After this he was vicar of Croydon from 1793 to 1816.

During the time he was vicar, he was also the chaplain to Charles Jenkinson, the 1st Earl of Liverpool who had Ireland appointed as prebend of Westminster Abbey in 1802. He became subdean in 1806 and also the theological lecturer, which dates from the time of Queen Elizabeth I. He now addressed the king’s scholars at the Westminster School between 1806 and 1812, and then preached to the House of Commons at St. Margaret’s Church, Westminster in 1813. He declined the position of Regius Professor of Divinity at Oxford.

Ireland was chosen the successor of the Dean of Westminster, William Vincent in 1816. In addition he was Dean of the Order of the Bath, rector of Islip in Oxfordshire from 1816 to 1835. He was entitled to also carry the crown for Victoria at her coronation, but was too ill do to so.

Upon his death he had more than £20,000 to disburse. He is buried in Westminster Abbey. He wrote some sermons and lectures that were published such as Five Discourses for and against the Reception of Christianity by Ancient Jews and Greeks (DWW-What Chutzpah!) of Paganism and Christianty Compared. He has been criticized for failing to act to protect the position of Westminster School which declined while he was dean. He was married, his wife was Susannanh who had died in 1826 and was five or six years older than he was. They had no children.

These last few weeks I have been profiling here at The Things That Catch My Eye, chapters excerpted from Steam and Thunder, and The Prize is Not as Great As You Think.

I still have another chapter or two of the Prize to impart, but I am stopping midway in each book so that I have whetted your appetites. I also have found that many unscrupulous people will cut and paste my writing and others into one long document and claim that they have written the story I have. Thus it is best to only show half the book to you all.

But the whole story not having been revealed, so to the publishing story.

I want to have these two books be Kickstarter projects but to elevate our normal publication scheme. I want to use a professional cover, and illustrations for each chapter. To do this, I need feedback. One that you would like to see the books done so.

But also I need to work up the budget and need quotes from professionals in the field. Those who would like a gig as an illustrator for the books, or more than one. And copyeditors. Please send me your info in the comments section.

Regency Personalities Series
In my attempts to provide us with the details of the Regency, today I continue with one of the many period notables.

Adam Walker
1731-1821

PastedGraphic4-2012-12-29-08-33.jpg

Born the son of a woolen manufacturer in Patterdale, Westmorland, Walker was mainly self-taught. He attended fashionable lectures on experimental philosophy in Manchester and then established his own school there in 1762.

In 1766 he purchased the ‘philosophical apparatus’ of the lecturer William Griffith. He publicized his lectures with advertisements in local papers and wrote Syllabus of a Course on Natural Philosophy. It covered Astronomy, Pneumatics, Electricity, Magnetism, Chemistry, Mechanics, Hydrostitics, Hydraulics, Engineering, Fortifications and Optics. He lectured across the north of England.

He settled later in London and introduced a new type of harpsichord and the Eidouranion (shown below) which is a precursor to our modern planetariums.

PastedGraphic5-2012-12-29-08-33.jpg

In London he shared a room in George Street, Hanover Square with Henry Moyes. Walker’s interest in astronomy led to An Epitome of Astronomy and his two sons becoming astronomers. He was friends with Joseph Priestley and members of the Lunar Society. George Romney painted Walker and his family and Romney then gifted the painting to Walker.
