This is the first full-length biography of the man who, through a combination of industry and intellect, became one of the central figures in British politics from 1782 to 1817. Based on an extensive range of manuscript sources, the book follows Lord Grenville's stunning personal and political career as he rose in trun from Irish Secretary to Speaker of the House of Commons, Home Secretary, Foreign Secretary, Prime Minister and finally, Opposition leader from 1807 until his retirement from party politics in 1817. Lord Grenville's outstanding political achievements during these years were many. He played a vital supportive role to his cousin, the younger Pitt, from 1783 to 1791; he was the main author of the Renunciation Act of 1783 and the Canada Act of 1791, and was a major contributor to other specific measures, including the Union of Ireland; his views on foreign affairs decidedly shaped government policy. This engrossing study illuminates Grenville's pervasive influence not only during his 35-year career but in the subsequent course of British history.

The story of the estate at Boconnoc, situated near Lostwithiel in south-east Cornwall, is an extraordinary one. As this history demonstrates, members of the Cornish families who have owned the estate over many centuries have played important roles within the immediate locality and in national events.Catherine Lorigan explores their eventful lives – or in many cases deaths: dragged over a cliff by greyhounds, slain in battle, executed for treason or killed in duels. She traces how the medieval fortified tower house evolved into a Georgian mansion, discusses how the grounds and gardens have been transformed, and examines the relationship of the estate with the agricultural and industrial landscape in which it is set.Still family owned and run, Boconnoc retains the qualities that give it its magical and timeless ambience, while simultaneously, it has become a dynamic and successful business for the twenty-first century.
