Overview

Excerpt from The Right Honourable, Sir Henry Enfield Roscoe: A Biographical Sketch

The subject of this memoir had no particular pride of ancestry. Stemmata quid faciunt? Although with no convictions on the subject, he was willing to believe that his line stretched at least as far back as Adam and Eve, and he doubted whether any man could with certainty claim - pace Darwin - a more ancient lineage.

As he has told us in his Autobiography, his family was one of the many that could not trace its origin for more than three or four generations back. All he knew was that he came of a North-country stock, members of which - village Hampdens and mute inglorious Miltons - had been settled in the County Palatine and in the vicinity of Liverpool for many years.
