THERE'S RUE wrote about a fascinating relation Adrian. He wrote to the historian John (Winifred's husband) after being told indirectly that he was no relation to them.
"We were cousins in the 14th century. Mine is the elder but undistinguished branch. It did remain however loyal to its King and Faith which is more than yours did. We discovered him to be, in spite his early middle age a man of immense learning. He was a marvelous
linguist, and enjoyed in learning abstruse and difficult tongues and dialects. He knew and loved the desert tribes; had traveled in the east disguised as an Arab and once had to kill a man in self-defence. He was an expert on old church music, on the liturgy, ritual and
vestments of the Roman Catholic Church of which he was an ordained priest; a very good water colour artist besides being an erudite scholar with a comprehensive knowledge of the classics; he appeared to read every book that was written from abstruse scientific works to
trashy novels, which, when sleepless, he devoured at a rate of three a night."
