I've been wondering this for ages.

There is a supposed epitaph of someone that goes something like:
"Here lies the peerless paper lord, Lord Peter
who broke the laws of God, and man, and metre."

The person involved was probably born around 1793, and probably a contemporary and acquaintance of [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christopher_North]John Wilson.
[/url] His name was possibly Patrick Robertson, nicknamed Peter. He was certainly a barrister, and probably a judge. He was probably from Edinburgh, but almost certainly not the silversmith that there is mention of elsewhere.

25k for anyone who gives me his real name and background details with sources.
