PALGRAVE, Sir Francis (1788-1861). Historian.
Autograph Letter Signed to the earl of Derby, 1 page 4to, Rolls House, Public Record Office, 20 November 1852.

Asking permission to appoint his son as clerk for the Capitular Commission.
'... If he should be employed as above suggested, I should wish him to bring his work home in the evening, and I will, in that case, examine and correct the same. This will relieve the secretary from a portion of his labour.'
Palgrave (formerly Cohen) had four sons from his marriage to Elizabeth Dawson Turner, and had taken her mother's family name following his marriage and conversion from Judaism to the Church of England. They were all successful in their own right, although it is unclear which son he is referring to here.
