Rector, the Venerable Leveson Vernon Harcourt

"Another clergyman (the Archdeacon of Cleveland) I must not forget to mention, as his name is both connected with Stokesley and the literary world, i speak of our late Rector, the Venerable Leveson Vernon Harcourt whose Doctrine of the Deluge I trust will find a place in the library of our Mechanics Institute. Have any of that gentleman's correspondents, our worthy Rector for instance was to give the hint, I doubt not that he would be willingly present with a copy."
From George Markham Tweddell's talk on Local Writers to the Stokesley Mechanics Institute 9th November 1850.

More material to come to this.
