Mentions in Memoirs: Folio 227

Edward Clinton, (c. 1650-1692), who would become the 5th Earl of Lincoln, attended salons frequented by English expatriates in Montpellier.  Lister wrote of him:

The greatest wonder I have observed abroad was the \strange/ forewardness of my Lord Clinton who at 16 is a much a man, as any I ever saw any at age. he had all the markes of a noble and generous spirit. a great witt, a free and galant air I doubt not but brave in his person, when ever he shall have \an honorable/ occasion to shew it
