200 years ago Keats didn’t learn about his hidden inheritance

On Saturday 13 February 1819, Keats went to town for the first time in 3 weeks. He visited Richard Abbey to discuss Fanny Keats’s schooling (he couldn’t persuade him to let her continue her education), and saw the family solicitors. If only Mr Walton had been in, Keats might have learned about the inheritance he was due from grandmother Mrs Jennings (it wouldn’t be uncovered till after Keats’s death).
