Clavering, Sir Hugh

A brutal tyrant in his own home, and in no sense popular outside it.

"The eleventh baronet of that name ...handsome, every inch an English gentleman ...given to few words, proud of his name, and rank, and place, well versed in the business of the world, a match for most men in money matters, not ignorant, though he rarely opened a book, selfish, and utterly regardless of the feelings of those with whom he came in contact" - The Claverings.
