Anonymous, "Biographical List of Living English Poets" Gentleman's Magazine 62 (June 1792) 505.



Edward Jerningham, Esq. younger brother of Sir William Jerningham, Bart. of Coffey in Norfolk, (where the family have long been of eminence, and next heir to the ancient Barony of Stafford) has far more than twenty years been distinguished among persons of taste and fashion for the elegance and pathos of his poetical talents, to which character his poems, that have gone through several editions, prove him fully entitled.
