Footnotes

  • The Aldeburgh poet George Crabbe's friendship with the Hoare family is well-documented. As ODNB notes: "In 1817 Crabbe met Sarah Hoare (1777–1850), the daughter of the London banker Samuel Hoare (1751–1825), and Crabbe visited the Hoares at their Hampstead home every year from 1817 to 1830."
