Charles Waterton
Squire of Walton Hall

A fine old English Gentleman


"Among the social and literary celebrities of the century,
it would be impossible to omit mention of an old and valued friend,
the great naturalist, Charles Waterton."
Mrs William Pitt Byrne,
Social Hours With Celebrities,
Gossip of the Century
, 1898.

Waterton's enclosure of his property, after he came to reside on it,
by a continuous high wall, and his banishment of the gun
within its circumference - through which acts he instituted,
so far as I know, the first bird-sanctuary, so that, in my opinion,
it is his statue that ought really to be set up in Hyde Park.
Edmund Selous, 1st May 1925.
