I’ve added two links over to the right that will be of interest to you. If you are into reseach or just want to know, there is a link to the NATIONAL ARCHIVES AND RECORDS located in College Park, MD. You name it, it’s there somewhere and you can obtain print copies if needed.
I also added a link to a Google book, HUMANITY DICK: THE ECCENTRIC MP FROM GALWAY. Richard Martin was an MP from Galway, possibly the first animal rights activist, who was impressed with the Colonial struggle. The book recounts the times between 1754 onward and gives the viewpoint of those in the British government who thought the Colonies had a good point.
