Abstract:

Set in 18th century England. Henry is raised by Francis Esmond, heir to the Castlewood estate, with Francis's own children, Beatrix and Frank. Henry grows up believing he is the illegitimate son of Thomas Esmond, viscount of Castlewood. On his deathbed, Francis confesses to Henry that he is the lawful heir, but Henry keeps the information secret. Henry and Frank Esmond are supporters of James Edward Stuart, the Pretender, who ruins his chances for the throne when he falls in love with Beatrix. When she joins the prince abroad, Henry, who had been in love with her, renounces the Pretender, marries Beatrix's mother, Rachel instead and takes her to America. The story of their descendants is related in Thackeray's "The Virginians"
