Some account of Lord Boringdon's accident


Lord Henry Villiers Parker

London: The Hukluyt Society (1848, Reprinted from the edition of 1622) xvi, 246pp.

Prepared by Michael Steer

The Earldom of Morley is a title created in 1815 for the politician John Parker, 2nd Baron Boringdon. He was made Viscount Boringdon of North Molton at the same time. The family seat was Saltram House in Plymouth, until it was sold to the National Trust in 1957. Their seat was originally Boringdon Hall a few miles from Saltram. It is now Pound House, near Yelverton, Devon. The privately printed book, a small number only was printed, records events surrounding the tragic, accidental death in 1817 of eleven years old Lord Boringdon who inadvertently, swallowed an ear of rye that caused internal bleeding. This rare book was produced from a digital copy held by the Bodleian Library that can be downloaded from Google Books. Google has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries. Those on which copyright has expired are available for free educational and research use, both as individual books and as full collections to aid researchers.
