    More Information: "Seymour [d.1819] was one of the actors at the Theatre Royal Norwich ans apparently cultivated his own standing as one of Cedworth's [John Howe, Baron Chedworth] close intellectual companions... Seymour published, by subscription, a two-volume opus with a fashionably convoluted title: Remarks... Seymour includes one hundred and twenty-two citations ascribed to Chedworth but the vast accumulation of comments are Seymour's own."
