There was a post intended for here on Sir John Poo Beresford, (1766–1844), naval officer and politician.
I stumbled upon this unfortunately-named bod as a result of searching the British national art archives.
Unfortunately, seeing the surname, I became caught up in the various Beresfords who infest Anglo-Irish history from the seventeenth century onwards (one of the minor ones, as Provost of TCD, gave us the Campanile).
Now I have an appointment with the morning flight from Leeds-Bradford to Belfast City, and several days wallowing in the fleshpots of Belfast, Bushmills and Portadown.
Normal service may be resumed next week (shortly before a further commitment in Prague).
Busy life, this retirement.
