     Bishop Burnet remarked "few of his years have a better understanding, nor a more manly behaviour. He has seen most of the courts of Europe; is bery handsome in his person; fair complexioned; about twenty-five years old". Swift states "this great Duke was in his political life but a petty intriguer, a greedy courtier, and a factious patriot."3 According to Horace Walpole, he "was graceful in his figure, ostentatious in his behaviour, impetuous in his passions; prompt to insult, even where he had wit to wound and eloquence to confound; and what is seldom seen, a miser as early as a hero ... He had a great thirst for books, a head admirably turned to mechanics, was a patron of ingenious men, a promoter of discoveries, and one of the first great encouragers of planting in England ... But perhaps too much has been said on the subject of a man who had so little great either in himself or his views ... that poterity will probably interest themselves very slightly in the history of his fortunes."3
     As he left no male issue, his English honours ceased on his death (i.e., Duke and Earl of Greenwich, Baron Chatham).3 He has an extensive biographical entry in the Dictionary of National Biography.4
