Grose, Captain Francis (17311791)

Grose, Captain Francis, an English antiquary, born at Greenford, Middlesex; was educated for an artist, and exhibited; proved a good draughtsman; became captain of Sussex militia; published the “Antiquities of England and Wales” (1773-1787); came to Scotland in 1789 on an antiquarian tour, and made the acquaintance of Burns, who celebrated him in his “Hear, Land o' Cakes and Brither Scots,” as “a chield's amang you takin' notes, and faith he'll prent it”; was an easy-going man, with a corpulent figure, a smack of humour, and a hearty boon companion; lived to publish his “Antiquities of Scotland and Ireland”; died at Dublin in an apoplectic fit (17311791).
