  James Anthony Froude - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Froude's Life of Caesar (1879), a glorification of imperialism, betrays little acquaintance with Roman politics and the life of Cicero; and his travel book, The English in the West Indies or The Bow of Ulysses (1888) shows that he made little effort to master his subject.
Froude therefore declared that in giving them to the world he was carrying out his friend's wish by enabling him to make a posthumous confession of his faults.
Froude's first wife, a daughter of Pascoe Grenfell and sister of Mrs Charles Kingsley, died in 1860; his second, a daughter of John Warre, M.P. for Taunton, died in 1874.

Froudes temperament was sensitive, and he suffered from these attacks, which were often unjust and always too savage in tone.
Notwithstanding its defects, Froudes History is a great achievement; it presents an important and powerful account of the Reformation period in England, and lays before us a picture of the past magnificently conceived, and painted in colors which will never lose their freshness and beauty.
As with Froudes work generally, its literary merit is remarkable; it is a well-balanced and orderly narrative, coherent in design and symmetrical in execution.

 Literary Encyclopedia: Froude, James Anthony
James Froude was born in 1818 in Devon, the son of Robert Hurrell, archdeacon of Totnes.
Froude's appreciation of primary sources, however, was not uncritical, and he did not believe that a truth of history was possible; good history-writing for Froude was a matter of good writing.
Froude was never far from controversy or the great debates of the era, and he, along with his friend Charles Kingsley, can be considered one of the great bêtes-noires of not just the late-Victorian professional historians, but also the catholic clergy of the mid-nineteenth century.

Froude further confidently states that whilst a superior Negro "might do well himself," yet "his family feel their blood as a degradation." If there be some who so feel, they are indeed very much to be pitied; but their sentiments are not entitled to the serious importance with which our critic has invested them.
Froude would doubtless allow and commend in their case, he finds it creditable to ignore the very possibility of in the experience of people whose cuticle is not white.
Froude is silent regarding the scores of brilliant coloured officials who adorn the civil service of France and Spain, and whose appointment, in contrast with what has usually been the case in British Colonies, reflects an abiding lustre on those countries, and establishes their right to a foremost place among nations.

Froude did give FH some help with his early career in London, in particular hosting a party at which FH decided to give up poetry (see also under Austin Dobson).
