Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Isaac Bickerstaffe or Bickerstaff (26 September 1733 - 1812?) was an Irish playwright and Librettist. Isaac John Bickerstaff was born in Dublin, on 26 September 1733, where his father John Bickerstaff held a goverment position overseeing the construction and management of sports fields including bowls and tennis courts. The office was abolished in 1745 and he received a pension from the government for the rest of his life. In his early years Isaac was a page to Lord Chesterfield, the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland which allowed him to mix with fashionable Dublin society. When Chestefield was replaced in the position in 1745 he arranged for Issac to be given a commission in the army. In October 1745 Bickerstaff joined the 5th Regiment of Foot known as the Northumberland Fusiliers.show more
