DOMINIC SEAMUS HEGGARTY
a gardener who loved Nature minus Man.
Born in Islington, June 13th 1836
Died December 27th 1891
Bastard son of Michael de Humpe, VIIIth Earl of Stitchbury
who cavorted with Molly Frimble, an unfortunate, and contracted the French disease and died most horribly of raging insanity,
thereby bestowing upon his beloved illegitimate son nothing of note other than an unconsecrated burial plot at the far end of his Estate,
for when his own time of passing came, alongside Molly,
dispatched to the afterlife by Lady Stitchbury in a fit of apoplexy.
