John Lenos, the Black Duke of Richmond

From one of our visiting friends:

I would like to share this with you all; finding it is what led me to this site after a quick Google search.

It is from the Memoirs of John Macky, Esq., found on the site archives.org.

On page 36, John Lenos, Duke of Richmond, is described as having a “black complexion.” This newfound info really intrigues me…

Has anyone done more research on this individual?

One thought on “John Lenos, the Black Duke of Richmond”

  1. Did you post the right link? There’s no mention of John Lenos on Page 36 or elsewhere in the text and the Duke of Richmond is listed as ‘Charles’ in the contents.
