Quick Reference

(1829–1902), novelist. Born in Downpatrick, he was educated at TCD. His election as an independent MP for South Belfast in 1868 threatened the major parties with a show of popular loyalism. He issued numerous pamphlets with titles such as Protestant Work to be Done (1853) and The Nunnery Question (1854). His political and sectarian fears are luridly dramatized in novels such as Nightshade (1857) and Under Which King? (1872).
