This is not deer stalking or deer stalking related, that I know off.
However, as we are among a gathering of so many countrymen... ie. my countrymen and also men of the country... I'm hoping some of you might be able to assist.
I have had a request from an overseas friend seeking background information regarding one Grace Dalrymple Elliott... She who was the famous courtesan of the French revolution.
Evidently her courtesanly ways were/are well reported and commonly known... However, she also seems to have a very intriguing back story, a very murky back story that points toward all manner of secret goings on and endless connections to the highest and most influential places, including the early versions of our own current secret service. It is in regard to this back story that any info would be gratefully received.
If anyone has any info they think might be of interest regarding Grace in particular or the family in general or pointers towards such, please let me know. This would be to the purpose of allowing a historian to make better sense of what info he already has.
Thanks in advance~Tom
ps. we realise there are many spellings of the name and a certain rhyme to go with. Frankly, any interesting stories of an Eliott or Dalrymple nature might prove very pleasing to my friend. Having aid this, the usual sources have been well trawled already.
