Egads. The dastards turning on their rightful King. It will be shame of the parish.
I believe the Kinch of whom who speak is Major Alphonsus Kinch. Originally intended to be a clergyman, he left the seminary after running up considerable gambling debts. A brief career as a publisher of French "philosophical books" came to an abrupt end after he was offered a far more profitable billet on the Antonia, a Bristol slaver. Mainly remembered in the family these days for entering Irish legal textbooks as the most prolific bigamist in Leinster history.
I believe the case of The Crown v. Kinch (1773) is still quoted today.
A thoroughly bad egg to be sure.

Also as requested here is another pic of Liberty Ellie, completed and based. I added the cords from twisted cotton and burned a few shot holes through the flag. The final touch was a pink cockade!
A new arrival.
I have featured our pets here on numerous occasions, we currently have four cats and a large Golden Retriever who is now eleven years old. Today we shall be joined by 'Tilly' a year old Staffie in need of re homing. The process has taken ages - I'm sure it would be faster to adopt a child! Sadly her owner is unable to keep her due to ill health, she will be given a loving home here and I'm sure she will feature in a few photos on the blog in due course of time. She's used to living with cats so hopefully all will go well this afternoon when we meet her.
