Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Daines Barrington, FRS (1727 - 14 March 1800) was an English lawyer, antiquary and naturalist. Barrington was the fourth son of the first Viscount Barrington. He was educated for the profession of the law, and after filling various posts, was appointed a Welsh judge in 1757 and afterwards second justice of Chester. Though an indifferent judge, his Observations on the Statutes, chiefly the more ancient, from Magna Charta to 21st James I. (1766), had a high reputation among historians and constitutional antiquaries. In 1773 he published an edition of Orosius, with Alfred's Saxon version, and an English translation with original notes.show more
