  1. Broadside: The Courteous Baronet - To the Fair Ladies of Great Britain.
  2. Sir John Dinely-Goodere, 5th Baronet, was an English eccentric. He inherited his title and family estate after the death of his elder brother Edward. Unfortunately he wasted his inheritance, and sold the estate, becoming almost destitute. Via his connections he procured a pension and residency as a Poor Knight of Windsor. He dreamt that he was a descendant of top aristocracy and therefore was due enormous wealth. To pursue his dream would require lawyers, which he couldn’t afford. So he had hand bills printed and advertised in newspapers in the hope of finding a wife with money.
    Dated: October 23rd 1799.
