NOTES
CHAPTER I
1. The London Gazette, No. 5514. Tuesday February 19-Saturday February 23, 1717.
2. Charles Mathews ( 1776-1835), actor, who claimed to have been dandled by Garrick as a child, was struck by the picturesqueness of the Angel when staying in Hereford, and remarked in histrionic style, " Altogether Mr. Garrickought to have been born here ". " To be sure he ought, sir," replied the attendant waiter. " I am glad to hear you say that. It was too bad of his father to go to Hereford when his wife was so near her time; but we claim him, for all that."
3. The author wishes to thank Mr J. F. W. Sherwood, City Librarian and Curator, Hereford, for information and a photograph of an old engraving of the Angel Inn. The Angel, after a devastating fire, ceased to function as an inn towards the close of the eighteenth century, but visitors to Hereford were shown a jeweller's shop and an oak room as the birthplace of Garrick. To-day a plaque on the present Raven Hotel states that Garrick was born on this spot.
4. The dates of David Garrick's birth and baptism have been very generally mis-stated. Until 1752, when the Gregorian Calendar was established in England and Scotland, years began on March 25. Garrick was born on February 19, 1717, according to modern reckoning, but 1716 according to the practice followed at the date of his birth. He himself wrote down February 19, 1716, when sending a list of the family's birthdays to his father. His first biographers, Thomas Davies and Arthur Murphy, gave February 20 for his baptism and All Souls Church. James Boaden pointed out Murphy's error, but gave February 20, 1716, as date of birth. Percy Fitzgerald gave February 19, 1716. Of later biographers, Joseph Knight and Adolphus Ward and Robert Carruthers realized the problem, and gave 1716/17, but Frank Hedgcock, writing in 1912, still gave 1716. Margaret Barton in 1948 got it right. ( Memoirs of the Life of David Garrick, Thomas Davies, 2 vols., 1780; The Life of David Garrick, Esq., Arthur Murphy, 2 vols., 1801; The Private Correspondence of David Garrick, edited James Boaden, 2 vols., 1831; Forster Collection, Victoria and Albert Museum; The Life of David Garrick, Percy Fitzgerald , 1899 edition; David Garrick, Joseph Knight, 1894; David Garrick and His French Friends, Frank Hedgcock, 1912; Garrick, Margaret Barton, 1948--hereafter cited as Davis, Murphy, Forster, Boaden, Fitzgerald, Knight, Hedgcock, Barton.) Quotations from the Forster Collection printed by Boaden are cited as "Forster, Boaden". Those which do not appear in Boaden as "Forster, Garrick".
5. Henri IV, by the Edict of Nantes in 1598, granted the Protestants of France free exercise of their religion, and the rights and privileges of which they had been deprived after the Massacre of St Bartholomew's day; but he was unable or unwilling to repress occasional outbursts of persecution, and
