Henry Heveningham, a ‘tall, thin-gutted mortal’, was often lampooned as a fop and pretended wit. He wrote several verses connected with the activities of the drinking club ‘the Knights of the Toast’ of which he was a member, and has been claimed as the author of the poem ‘The Fair Stranger’, formerly attributed to Dryden. According to one satire he was an intimate of the 1st Duke of Devonshire (William Cavendish†), in fact Devonshire’s ‘second self’. Although he had raised a troop for James II against Monmouth, and had afterwards been commissioned, he went over to the Prince of Orange in November 1688. In return he was given a place worth £500 p.a. and in 1690 was appointed to the Suffolk lieutenancy. (Source: The History of Parliament)
