"[A] fine-sounding swashbuckling name, savouring so much of buccanners and the Spanish Main." (Wainwright)

Originally (or nearly originally) from Cumbria, now in London, having lived in Cambridge, Zaragoza and Stroud for varying lengths of time.

Having wasted far too much time on Wikipedia in the past, and having rather less wastable time now than I used to (and being somewhat exasperated by the amount of drivel that pervades this encyclopedia), my presence here is now generally limited to occasional correction of the most egregious errors.
