The elusive warham st leger
« on: Sunday 13 February 05 15:39 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone help me find information concerning a Warham St Leger (1850- 1915) the son of William Nassau St Leger? He wrote the short comic poem "The Chavender or Chub", and had a book of his "Ballads from Punch and Other Poems" published in 1890. I would like to know a bit more about him but am finding him rather elusive. All help gratefully received.

What sort of information are you looking for? He appears to have made 2 marriages within 7 years, 1885 and 1892 for example. Or is only his literary career that interests you? 8

Well, many thanks for your interest,  it's particularly his literary career that interests me,  but I am interested in anything at all about him.

I may have some information about W. St. Leger - are you still interested?
