Peter Proletarius was in fact the one of the nom de plumes of George Markham Tweddell - a 19th C Printer / publisher / author / People's Historian / socialist / Freemason and much more and hailed from Stokesley in North Yorkshire.

I've been working with Paul Tweddell to bring the Tweddell family's archives into the public domain in various ways and in light of the interesting comments on his poem, I thought your members might be interested in some of these resources.

George Markham Tweddell's fascinating story can now be found on this website

and there is a list on the site of the family archives now located in the County archives in Middlesbrough.

We have also brought together all of his many poems (scattered throughout numourous publications (including the Chartist paper - The Northern Star) as well as many unpublished poems along with a discussion paper on the poems and bio of Tweddell. The E book is now available Free for download on this site

Many thanks for that Trevor and congratulations on bringing all your research together. I look forward to checking out your links later.

PP's poem also appears here if you're interested - with a comment by fitzcoraldo. I can either add the links that you've supplied above to the comment box on that page or can republish what you've posted just as it is if that's OK. If the above link doesn't work PP's poem is in the April 2007 Archive here -
