Bold, Henry

(1627-1683)
   The fourth son of Captain William Bold of Newstead in Hampshire, he was educated at Winchester School, then at New College Oxford from 1645 until he was dislodged in 1648 by the parliamentary forces. He moved to London, where he died and was buried at West Twyford near Acton, West London. Little else is known about him, except his books-which are now rare-and his many poems and songs. His works were quoted by such people as the book collector Sir George Henry Freeling (1789-1841). Some of his publications: St. George's Day, Sacred to the Coronation of his Most Excellent Majesty Charles II, 1661. On the Thunder Happening After the Solemnity of the Coronation of Charles II, 1661. Poems Lyrique, Macaronique, Heroique, 1664. Latine Songs, 1685. Poems, 1664. Wit a Sporting in a Pleasant Grove, 1657. Some of his poems/songs: "At General Monk's Coming to London," "Idle Sinner," "Let's Wet the Whistle of the Muse," "Love, Let Me Have My Mistress Such," "Proud [Venus now at last] Resigned," "Thou Glorious Envy, of the Nation," "Why Dost Thou Say I Am Forsworn."
