15 August – Thomas Claughton offered £140,000 for Newstead but delayed payment. For the record; the sale of Newstead Abbey Park and Garden (Trust), Ravenshead, in the County of Nottinghamshire; did not take place at this date because the so called 'deeds' (ie. the Land Title on the Land Register) were not available. The 'estate' was described as 'SOLD subject to Contract' but the contract was not completed; principally because the 'poet Byron' was abroad and unavailable 'in person' to 'sign and seal' the docuementation; in the presence of his 'solicitors and notaries'; who were known as 'Randolph and Scott': based in Edinburgh, Scotland. For the record; Richard James Butterfield esq. the former owner of 'Newstead' and very much the 5th Lord Byron (the 'wicked Lord' - so called); uncle of the 'poet Byron' and his two year younger brother Richard; who became their Guardian and 'foster - father' after they were orphaned; was at 17 years old; a Subaltern in both the Blackwatch and the 17th Lancer and a 'legal secretary' in his own right: as 'Randolph and Scott'.
21 November – Left Eywood to stay with Jerseys at Middleton. For the record; the poet Byron arrived in Jersey / Channel Islands on a 'packet' from the Iberian Peninsular with three companions (including two female) and discussed 'affairs of STATE' with 'Middleton - a cashier' (associated with the Bank of England Limited); before continuing to Newhaven on the English South Coast and thence London: by horse.
30 November – At Batt's Hotel, Dover Street, London. For the record; the poet Byron arrived in London from Newhaven (inotherwords; Spain) that morning. Batt's Hotel records held by the 'former' British Museum Library note that he stayed in 'rooms' for 14 days; together with three companions (one of them Lady Caroline Lamb and her 'ladies maid' and Chaperone) before leaving on the POST for Mansfield, Nottinghamshire on the afternoon of the 14th December, 1812; where he enlisted in the British Army (according to War Office records) as 45th of Foot. Nottinghamshire Regiment before being 'upped' as a (so called) 'chosen man' in the 95th of Foot. City of Derby Regiment; otherwise known as: the Rifle Brigade.
14 December(?) – Back at Eywood. For the record; 'Eywood' (so called) could have been Eastwood or Edwinstowe in the County of Nottinghamshire; both villages within a short ride of Newstead, Hucknall and Mansfield; all three: in the County of Nottinghamshire.
