Byron in the North East

Detail from a portrait of Lord Byron 
by Robert Westall (1813) NPG
Dr David Fallon has received a grant from the Culture and Regional Studies Beacon to develop a bid for external research funding. His proposed project will coincide with the 200th anniversary of Byron's marriage to Anne Isabella Milbanke, which took place at Seaham Hall in 1815, and will re-assess the marriage's impact on Byron's writing and reputation, and how it contributed to the Byron legend in the nineteenth century.
