Cartwright John

Cartwright, John (1740-1824), brother of the Edmund Cartwright above-mentioned, born also at Marnham, served for a time in the navy, and in the Nottinghamshire militia, but left the service owing to his Radical sympathies. From that time he gave himself up to the study of agriculture, both theoretical and practical; and wrote much upon political questions. His views seem to have been sound and far-sighted, but in advance of his time.
