DYN, THOMAS, D.D. (d. 1421 ), chancellor 
of St. Paul's, was bom in Herefordshire, and 
educated at Oxford, where he became master 
of arts and doctor of divinity, and was ap- 

Sointed fellow of Oriel College (before 1386), 
ean, and afterwards provost (1417-21). 
UIb election as proTOSt was disputed for 
nearly two years (cf. Ttlbb, ffeary V.) He 
is thought to have compiled in 1397 aregis- 
ter of the college muniments, which is still 
extant {Coilegea of Oiford, p. 99, ed. Ciark). 
He supported the archbishop against certain 
Lollard fellows of the college. Two manu- 
scripts that belonged to Leintwarden are 
in Uriel and Merton libraries respectively. 
He wan ordained acolyte on 18 iub. 1390, 
ajid deacon 1392 (fljmVter of Braybroke, 
bisbopof London, ap.TAXNEB). In 1401 lie 
succeeded John Godmanston as chancellor of 
St. Paul's. He refused at first to vacate his 
fellowship St Oriel on receiving this appoint- 
ment, but seems (o have done so before 1409.

At a synod held by Arclibishop Chichele on 
26 Nov. in that year in Loudon, proposals were 
adopted with a view to remedying the com- 
plaintoftheecholarsof Oxford andCambridge 
that they were excluded from rewards and 
benefices, and l.eintwarden was sent with the 
dean of Hereford to obtain the consent of his 
own university to these proposals. But the 
masters rejected the scheme, because it gave 
better benefices to the doctors than to them. 
Leintwarden died probably near the end of 
1421. 

lie waa author of a 'Commentary upon 
the Episilea of St. Paul,' in fourteen books, 
•nd John Whethamstede, abbot of St. Al- 
bans, who highly praised Leintwarden in his 
' De granis typicis,' ordered the work to be 
transcribed for the use of his monastery. The 
commentary is not now known to be extant. 



Tanner confuses him with a contemporary 
Richard Lentwardyn, prirate chaplain to 
Courtenay, arclibisLop of Canterbury, who 
was presented by the dean and chapter of 
Canterbury, $tde tiacante, to the living of 
Aldington, near Hythe, in ihe archbishop's 
pi ft, on 1 Dec. 1390 (Couhtbsay'b jBf^iXer 
in Lambeth Palace Library; 1391 accord- 
ing to Hasted, Hiit. of Kent, iii. 463). 
This Richard Lentwardyn was collated by 
the archbishop to Chart'ham, near Canter- 
bun", on 20 July 1392 (i». p. 146). He was 
stiUrectorof Chartham inl396. ARichard 
Lentwardyn exchanged some other prefer- 
ment for the archdeaconry of Cornwall with 
Robert Braybroke on 5 April 1395 {Pat.

LEITCH, 1\'ILLIAM LEIGHTON 

(1804^1883),water-colour painter, was born 
at Glasgow on 22 Nov. 1804. His father 
had been a sailor, but about the time of 
Leitch'.t birth became a soldier. Leitch soon 
developed a strong inclination for art, and 
I used to practise drawing at night with David 
' Macnee, afterwards president of the Scottish 
Academy. After a good general education, 
he was placed in & lawyer's ofiice ; but neither 
. this euipioyment nor that of weaving, to 
! whichhe was next set, wasagreeable to him, 
. and he was apprenticed to Mr. Harbut, a 
house-painter and decorator. In 1824 he 
was engaged as a scene-painter at the Theatre 
I Koyal, Glasgow, and marriedMiss Susannah 
Smellie, who bore him five sons and two 
daughters. The theatre failing, he spent two 
years at Mauchline, painting snuiT-boxes, and 
then came to London, wliere he made the 
acquaintance of David Roberts [q. v.] and 
OarkBon Staiifield [q. v.], and obtained em- 
I ployment as a scene-painter at the Queen's 
, (afterwards the Prince of Wales's) Theatre 
i in Tottenham Street. He bad some lessons 
from Copley Fielding, and was employed by 
Mr. Anderden, a stockbroker, to make draw- 
ings for a work be was writing. The same 
gentleman provided bim with funds to visit 
the continent. After exhibiting two draw- 
ings at the Society of British Artists, 1832, 
lie set out in 1833, passing through Holland, 
Germany, and Switzerland to Italy. After

LEOPOLD GEOEQE DUNCAN 
ALBERT, DnKB or Albany (18.53-18ai), 
fourth and youngest son of Queen Vic- 
toria and the prince consort, was born at 
Buckingham Palace on 7 April 1853. So 
delicate was his health that his baptism was 
deferred until the enstun^ 28 June (Coro- 
nation day), when the rite waa performed 
at Buckingham Palace, his sponsors being 
George V, king of Hanover (after whom he 
was named George), Prince Ernest of Hohen- 
loho-Langenbura, hia elder sister the Prin- 
cess of Prussia (afterwards Empresa of Ger- 
many), and the Princess Ubtt of Cambridge, 
now Ducheaa of Teck. llie prince was 

TOL. HXin. 



' named Leopold after his great-uncle, Leo- 
j pold II, king of the Belgians, Albert after 
1 his flither, and Duncan in compliment to 
, Scotland. His ill-health debarred him from 
I the ordinary sports of boyhood, and BTen 

{recluded a ayatematic course of education, 
lis mind, however, wafl active, he early 

' evinced a love of books— Shakespeare and 
Sir Walter Scott were his iavourit« authors 

I — and he showed remarkable aptitude for 
music and modem languages. He was in- 

I structed in the rudimenta of religion and 
science by Canon Duckworth, Dean Stanley, 

j and Professor TyndalL Later on his principal 
tutor was Mr. (now Sir) Bobert Hawthorn 

' Collins, afterwards comptroller of his house- 
hold, with whom he went into residence at 

' Oxford in 1872, matriculating at .Christ 
Church (27 Nov.) He Uved at Wykeham 

' House, St. Giles's, near the parka ; attended, 

! in the garb of a gentleman-commoner, the 
lectures of the professors of history, poetry, 
music, fine art, and political economy, and 
studied science at the museum and modern 
languages at the Taylorian Institution. 

On coming of age in 1874 the prince was 
awom of the privy council, and granted an 
annuity of 15,000/. In the winter of 1874-5 
his life was threatened by a severe attack of 
typhus fever. In 1876 he left the nniversity 
with the honoraiy degree of D.C.L., and 
established himself at Boyton House, Wilt- 
shire, whence he removed in 1879 to Clare- 
mont. Part of the intervening years he 
spent in travel ia France, Germany, Switzer- 
land, and Italy, and in 1880 he niade a tour 
in Canada and the United States. In 1678 
lie was electedpresidentofthelioyal Society 
of Literature, and in 1879 vice-president of 
the Society of Arts. He was a graceful and 
effective public speaker, and took a lively 
interest in social questions. In 1879 he 
spoke in favour of the movement for uni- 
versity extension (Mansion House, 19 Feb.), 
advocated the cause of technical education 
in presiding at the prize distribution at the 
BirkbeckInstitiite,ClianceryLane(23Feb.), 
took the chair and spoke at a meeting at 
Grosvenor House in support of the Bayal 

[ Institution in aid of the Deaf and Dumb 

! (16 May), and opened Firth College, Shef- 

: field (20 Oct,) In 1880 he laid the founda- 
tion-stone of the Oxford High School 
(14 April). In 1881 he presided at the first 
meeting of the Kyrle Society (27 Jan.), 
opened University College, Nottingham 
(30 June), advocated the establishment of a 
national conservatoire of music at a soir6e 
at Manchester (12 Dec,), and laid thefounda- 
tion-etone of the Princess Helena College at
