Tilbrook, Samuel (1784–1835)

Anglican clergyman, Fellow of Peterhouse, Cambridge, 1810–1828, and later Rector of Freckenham, Suffolk, 1829–1835. Tilbrook was on good terms with Wordsworth, near whose home at Rydal he purchased a cottage, the ‘Ivy Cot’. Southey corresponded with him over a number of charitable projects, including plans to help James Dusautoy and Robert Bloomfield. Tillbrook also published an extended critique of Southey’s use of hexameters in A Vision of Judgement (1821).
