1888 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Elijah Barnwell Impey

W. K. R. Bedford, "Memoir" in Letters from and to Charles Kirkpatrick Sharp (1888) 1:20-21 &n.



Elijah Barnwell Impey, son of the famous coadjutor of Warren Hastings, Sir Elijah Impey, Chief-Justice of Bengal. "This amiable man dedicated many years of labour to the vindication of his father's memory, and eventually, indeed, sacrificed his life, shortened by the emotions excited in his affectionate mind by the renewal of oft-refuted calumny, and the irksome task of a search through public documents by a man in impaired health."*
