Sir RossI had no idea!

My Sir Bernard Lacey in A Set of Lies was created Baronet by the Prime Minister of the time (Lord Liverpool) for services to the country during the Napoleonic Wars.

I have just learned that someone else from the world of fiction was also created Baronet by Lord Liverpool for services to the country during the Napoleonic Wars. Sir Ross Poldark.

And Sir Bernard’s could not have done what he did had it not been for a Cornishman…..
