Footnote

An Anglo-Irish Protestant from Limerick, who had to move to England as he was so unpopular in England, Seymour spent his life writing Polemics against Catholicism. In 1844, having recently married, he went on a long journey to Rome with his wife. Several books against the Roman church followed - this being one of them. He died in Bath in 1874.
