 Ballooning in the Bristol region, 1784 to 1786
By March 1784 ballooning activity had shifted north into Gloucestershire where at Cirencester two ingenious citizens, Mr.G.Clutterbuck and Mr.Thorn had constructed a 112cu.ft. air balloon which they launched at midday on Thursday, March 18th from Earl Bathurst's Home Park(28).
It was released at two o'clock in the afternoon, and later that day was seen to descend into a meadow at Symond's Hall only a short distance from Kingscote Park, at that time the residence of Anthony Kingscote Esq., father of three most eligible daughters.
By this time small hot air balloons were starting to become something of a nuisance and these, which were simple and cheap to construct when compared with the hydrogen filled variety, were being launched all over the country.

 Encyclopedia of North American Indians - - Treaties of Fort Stanwix (1768 and 1784)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
When the United States was victorious, the Americans forced some Iroquois into new cessions in the Fort Stanwix Treaty of 1784, whereby natives agreed to cede western Pennsylvania and Ohio to the new American government.
The 1784 treaty was considered by almost all native people—including many Iroquois—as being signed under duress by people who were not recognized by the native people as having authority to sign treaties with the government.
The questionable legality of the 1784 cessions and subsequent American encroachment on the ceded land in Pennsylvania and Ohio led directly to the Indian wars of the 1780s and 1790s.

 The Historian: Aeromania, "fire-balloons," and Catherine the G... @ HighBeam Research   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The inherent dangers of balloons were graphically recounted in the Moscow press concerning an accident at Chudleigh in Staffordshire where peasants innocently took one indoors and, in attempting to reinflate it, set off a fiery explosion that damaged their house and singed their hair but left them alive.(32)
To be sure, the element of danger in manned flights was one of their greatest attractions, and press reports soon fastened upon suspected or real accidents.
In late January 1784, the Dutch press cited an incident near Nyon in Switzerland in which four persons supposedly died from cold, but expressed doubt as to its veracity--no particulars known.(56) It may have been a hoax.

In the spring of 1784, Frederick II of Prussia supposedly "prohibited all aerostatic experiments in his dominions; alledging, that the merit of the improvement should be left to the inventors.
When balloons fell on private property near Brussels in the spring of 1784, for example, a local official asked the municipal authorities to adopt a similar ban but they refused.
Having rejected the ban in 1784, the provincial government of the Austrian Netherlands finally imposed it on 26 May 1786 citing the threat to property and the fire hazard.

When François de la Rochefoucauld, and his brother Alexandre visited Suffolk in 1784, the events which were to lead to the French Revolution in 1789 were already in train.
(East Anglian) This journal by François de la Rochefoucauld, who spent the whole of 1784 in Suffolk with his brother Alexandre and their tutor, wonderfully conveys the atmosphere of the county in the 18th century.
Based in Bury St Edmunds, the three also travelled widely throughout the region, and their comments demonstrate the contrast between English life, and the French life the boys knew, where the events which were to lead to the French Revolution in 1789 were already in train.

He thus became part of the unbroken chain of bishops that links the Church today with the Church of the Apostles.

 A Biographical Sketch by blupete: Leigh Hunt (1784-1859).
It was the Duke of Chandos, James Henry Leigh, who having heard him preach, employed Isaac Hunt as a tutor to his nephew.
Thus, we will better understand, that, upon the birth of his fifth son on October 19th, 1784, at Southgate, a community near London, the infant was to be named, James Henry Leigh Hunt.
Leigh's father earned little from preaching and tutoring and it was only ever to be but a minor supplement to a small loyalist pension.
