    Townshend, Chauncy Hare (male) 04/20/1798 - 02/25/1868 English Trinity Hall, Cambridge

    Poet and collector; contributed to annuals and other periodicals; wrote The Reigning Vice: a Satirical Essay in Four Books (1827). He was born Townsend but changed the spelling of his last name in 1828, before publishing any articles identified here (ODNB). Also, drop the "e" which Wellesley inserts in his forename. The online ODNB uses Chauncy rather than following the DNB's 'Chauncey.' as do other reliable sources (e.g., BL online cat., NLS cat. of Blackwood mss. 3:304). See Boase III: 999-1000, ODNB.
