Excerpt from Charles Bentley: Member of the "Old Water-Colour" Society
It was in this highway, during 1805 or 1806, that the wife of a master-carpenter and builder, called Bentley, gave birth to a son, who received the name of Charles. The latter date is favoured in most reference books but both Messrs. J. L. Roget and C. E. Hughest possessed suﬂicient caution to qualify the statement whereas, Mr. Gilbert R. Plumped boldly for the year of Trafalgar. In either case, it is interest ing to note that the Old water-colour Society and its future member were born within two years of each other.
