  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.

  1. Ticket: The Trial of Lord Viscount Melville.
  2. This ticket was for the last day of the trial of Lord Viscount Melville on June 12th, 1806. The financial management of the Admiralty, of which Henry Dundas (1st Viscount Melville, Baron Dunira) had been treasurer between 1782 and 1800, aroused suspicion and in 1802 an enquiry commission was appointed. Meanwhile in 1804 Dundas became First Lord of the Admiralty. In 1805 the commission reported its findings. The result of the enquiry was the impeachment of Dundas in 1806 for the misappropriation of public money. Although his trial ended in acquittal, he never again held office. It was the last impeachment trial held in the House of Lords.
