Citizen Daniel (1775-1835) and the Call of America: Early Correspondence of the Constables of Horley

Overview

He deals first with Horley and the Constable family and then specifically with Daniel as a young man making his way in London and Brighton.

Overview

Brian Jenkins has masterfully compiled this material, some of which chanced to come his way, much of which took years to accumulate. He deals first with Horley and the Constable family and then specifically with Daniel as a young man making his way in London and Brighton. The appeal of this volume is enhanced by the author’s absorbing narrative, which provides the historical context necessary for a full appreciation.

“Extravagant claims should not be made, but it is indeed rare that accounts like these survive time and distance. I have tried to present them as they stand in the hope that they will appeal not only to descendants of the authors, but also to students of the period and, indeed, to any reader with a wish to be put in mind of things as they were nearly two centuries ago. Because the Constables of Horley chose to record what they did they are no longer historically anonymous, nor are the many people whom they encountered during their travels and trials in the early republic.”-J. Brian Jenkins

About The Author:
. Brian Jenkins was born in Cardiff, Wales. His early schooling there was expanded by the British Army and Cambridge University, where he studied history, rowed, and did postgraduate work in education. He became a civil servant before deciding on a teaching career, which eventually took him to Blundell’s School as Head of Department and Director of Studies. Now in semi-retirement, he spends his time writing, lecturing, walking the nearby moors and cliff paths, playing the organ at the village church, and maintaining the garden, fabric, and wine cellar of the old Devon rectory, where he lives with his wife, Catherine. They have three sons and one granddaughter and have just celebrated forty years of marriage.
