Landed Gentry and Scottish Musical Dilettantes

I've just encountered a fascinating, useful and authoritative blog about the Landed Families of Britain and Ireland. It's by Nicholas Kingsley, who is (to quote his Twitter profile), 'Head of Archives Sector Development @UkNatArchives. Historian of the country house, peerage and gentry; FSA; and a member of the National Trust Arts Panel'.  He tweets as @NicholasKingsle


Now, you know my fascination with old eighteenth century Scottish dilettanti!  Kingsley's blog is clearly a resource I shall be returning to.

While I'm here, I don't know if I mentioned two recent papers I've had published about some of 'my' eighteenth century Scots, so I'll post the links now:-
