Anglo-French Relations The Cloak of Secrecy A personal voyage of detection

Acknowledgements & Reference Sources


Initially I have to thank my ancestors for bequeathing a mystery which has taken me on a very enjoyable voyage. This was greatly supported and encouraged by Herbert and Minda Despard and Annabelle Despard. As I progressed I received additional encouragement and assistance from Antoine, Duc de Gramont, Desmond Seward, Malcolm Vale, Anne Sutton (Editor of The Ricardian) and many others. Bruce and Barbara Marshall have given constant wise counsel with regard to publishing and Jean-Pierre Richard patiently translated the Balzac article – ‘Fact or Fiction’. Eric Christiansen kindly gave constructive commentary on my ‘King Richard the Third’ Article, and Stephen Alford on my ‘George Kendall’ Article. Monsieur Henri Buathier’s work on Jean 1 de Grailly was also an inspiration. The work of Miroslav Marek and his website  made sorting the complicated family trees very easy. To all these I give my heartfelt thanks.

Research for my book would not have been possible without the advent of the internet, and especially Google’s ‘Advanced Book Search’ facility.

My thanks go also to the different bodies listed below for access to documents and books, and for the many very patient people there who have guided me through the records.
