Footnotes

  • Charles was the youngest son of Giovanni Antonio Galignani (1757–1821) and Anne Parsons (1776–1822). Unlike his elder brothers Antoine (b.1796) and William (b.1798) who were born in London, Charles grew up in Paris where his parents established a reading room, bookshop and daily newspaper, 'Galignani's Messenger'. Antoine and William later founded a pre-eminent publishing firm of British works in France, which was responsible for bringing the writings of Sir Walter Scott and Charles Dickens to attention across the Channel.
