Rare! Hoare, second baronet, landowner and antiquary had a particular fondness for Wales, as did many of his fellow antiquaries, and he made a significant contribution to its travel literature with his translation of Gerald of Wales, published as Giraldus de Barri, Itinerary of Archbishop Baldwin through Wales AD 1188 (1806). He provided the illustrations for William Coxe's Historical Tour of Monmouthshire (1801) and did the same for his friend Roger Fenton in his Historical Tour through Pembrokeshire (1811). He bought a fishing-lodge at Bala in 1796. See ODNB for a full Bio.
