Fonblanque, Albany William (17931872)

Fonblanque, Albany William, journalistic editor, after serving on the staff of the Times and the Morning Chronicle became editor of the Examiner, which he conducted successfully from 1830 to 1847; Carlyle was introduced to him on his visit to London in 1831, and describes him as “a tall, loose, lank-haired, wrinkly, wintry, vehement-looking flail of a man,” but “the best of the Fourth Estate” then extant; “I rather like the man,” he adds, “has the air of a true-hearted Radical” (17931872).
