12 S. X. MAR. 4, 1922.] NOTES AND QUERIES. 177 30. William Kendall. Biographical notes on Wm. Kendall (1768-1832) may be found' in Trewman's Flying Post (Exeter), 1832, March 29, p. 2, col. 5 ; ditto, 1849, May 31, p. 6, col. 4 (being No. 24 of Geo. Oliver's ' Biographies of Eminent Exonians') ; and Wm. H. K. Wright's 'West Country Poets.' Kendall was baptized at Exeter (St. Mary Major) on Dec. 3, 1768, and was drowned in the River Wrey at Bovey Tracy on March 26, 1832. He was buried at | Exeter (St. Lawrence). Kendall published a | volume of ' Poems ' in 1791, privately | printed (as to place of printing, see 9 S. iii. 246) ; ' The Science of Legislation,' trans- lated from the Italian of Filangieri (pre- face dated in 1792) ; and ' Poems ' (Exeter, Trewman) in 1793. The poems of 1793 include Elegiac Stanzas, Occasional Verses, Sonnets, Fairy Fantasies, and imitations of Catullus. M. 30. William Kendall. The Exeter Public Library contains two copies of the 1793 edition of Kendall's poems. We also have an edition published in 1791 by "W. Kendall." The 1793 edition was published by R. Trewman of this city, but on the 1791 edition there is no imprint whatever. However, from internal evidence, such as type and ornaments used, there is no doubt that it came from Trewman's Press. Many of the poems of the 1791 edition .are repeated in the 1793 edition in a revised or extended form. In the 1791 edition a footnote to the verses 'To Laura,' says, " Composed at a very early age, the writer's first production." Kendall also published at the age of 24 & translation of ' An Analysis of the Science of Legislation,' from the Italian of Chevalier Filangieri, but I have never come across a -copy of this work. There is a copy of it in the British Museum, also of the two volumes of poems mentioned above. H. TAPLEY-SOPEB, F.S.A. 'THE INGOLDSBY LEGENDS' (12 S. x. 33, 99).' The Old Woman Clothed in Grey.' Dullman, " the worthy Jesuit's polemical publisher," = Charles Dolman (1807-1863), Roman Catholic publisher. See ' D.N.B.' 'The Black Mousquetaire.' 'Tom- pion's I presume ? ' FABQUHAB." Barham is quoting from Farquhar's comedy, ' The Inconstant ; or, The Way to Win Him,' Act V., scenes ii. and iv., where Young Mirabel is trapped in Lamorce's lodgings, and rescued later by a party of soldiers. The words are used by Lamorce in scene ii. when she extorts Mirabel's watch from him, and by Mirabel himself in scene iv. when recovering it from her. ' The Leech of Folkestone.' " One skull of such surpassing size and thickness as would have filled the soul of a Spurzheim or De Ville with wonderment." See 10 S. x. 91, 157, where Deville is described as a phrenologist " somewhere in the forties of last century." One correspondent quoted from ' A Woman of Mind ' : My wife is a woman of mind, And Deville, who examined her bumps, Vowed that never were found in a woman Such large intellectual lumps. At the second reference the late MB. RICHABD WEUFOBD gave some lines from Robert Montgomery's satire, ' The Age Reviewed,' in which " foggy Spurzheim," Combe, Gall, and " smug Deville " were assailed. ' The Babes in the Wood.' " Split, and told the whole story to Cotton." I do not know whether Sir Robert Bruce Cotton, as suggested, ante, p. 99, was connected with the transmission of the legend. One is tempted to suggest that we have a reference to the Rev. Horace S. Cotton, D.D., who was Ordinary of Newgate at least as late as 1831. See 10 S. vii. 408, 454. ' The Hand of Glory.' " The broad, Double- Joe from ayont the sea." A joe is said by Prof. Weekley, ' Etymological Diet, of Mod. English,' to be an archaic term for a Portuguese coin, after Joannes V. (f 1750). ' Patty Morgan the Milkmaid's Story.' " Gryffith ap Conan." This is presumably Gruff ydd ab Cynan (1055 ?- 11 37). See the ' D.N.B.' "Preface to the second edition" (Feb. 2, 1843). " AH modern Shakespearian^, including the rival editors of the new and illustrated versions." One of these editors must be Charles Knight, whose ' Pictorial Shakspere ' was published 1838-41. Was J. Payne Collier's edition (1842-44) or B. W. Procter's (1839-43) or Thomas Campbell's (1838) illustrated ? EDWABD BENSLY. ' Smuggler's Leap ' (p. 329). Nock. There were two famous gunsmiths of this name. The earlier, Henry Nock, in 1787 in- vented a breech-plug, known as the " patent breech," which was long used, and he also introduced the short flat piece on the top of gun-barrels still known as the " Nock form." There are several examples of his
