b. 1514. Shared his Father's Ambitions for the Advancement of the
Family, and Cherished Schemes for the Acquisitionof an Earldom. These
being Frustrated by the Untimely End of his Father, and the Confiscation
of the Estates and Title, he shut himself off from the World, and
Dedicated the Remainder of his Life to Science. This was not of long
Duration, as he shortly afterwards met his End, owing to the Unfortunate
Outcome of the Combination of two Hitherto Undiscovered Chemicals.
