The Anonymous Widower

Byron Hamburgers

I ate in Byron Hamburgers at Islington Green tonight. It was good and it made a  nice change for me to have a real gluten-free hamburger and chips.

I also got to thinking about the similarities between my father and Lord Byron.

For a start they were both poets, although my father’s output wasn’t very large and was much less famous and was meant to be spoken with a Cockney accent.  But then my father was probably a better printer than the noble Lord.

They both married women with the surname of Millbank, although Byron’s wife had a spelling of Milbanke.

And then just like I am a computer programmer, so was Lord Byron’s daughter; Ada, Countess of Lovelace.

But that’s as far as the links go.
