  1. my paternal family heritage has British roots and my surname was spelt Gerroll. I've seen Gerald interpreted as "spear wielder" gerald | Etymology, origin and meaning of the name gerald by etymonline Gerald masc. proper name, introduced into England by the Normans, from Old French Giralt, from Old High German Gerwald, "spear-wielder," from Proto-Germanic *girald, from *ger "spear" (see gar) + base of waltan "to rule" (cognate with Old English wealdan; from PIE root *wal- "to be strong"). The name often was confused with Gerard. https://en.wikipedia.org › wiki › Gerald Gerald Gerald is a male Germanic given name meaning "rule of the spear" from the prefix ger-("spear") and suffix -wald ("rule"). Variants include the English given name Jerrold, the feminine nickname Jeri and the Welsh language Gerallt and Irish language Gearalt. Gerald is less common as a surname.The name is also found in French as Gérald. Geraldine is the feminine equivalent.

  4. William Stone Booth, “Some Acrostic Signatures of Francis Bacon” 1909 Bacon was ahead, not only of his own time but also of the present, when he wrote {De Augmentis, book vi, Spedding's translation) of the methods of teaching and of the transmission of knowledge. He styles the first difference of method Magistral, or Initiative. ' The magistral method teaches; the initiative intimates. The magistral requires that what is told should be believed; the initiative that it should be examined. The one transmits knowledge to the crowd of learners; the other to the sons, as it were, of science. The end of the one is the use of knowledges, as they are now; of the other the continuation and further progression of them. Of these methods the latter seems to be like a road abandoned and stopped up; for as knowledges have hitherto been delivered, there is a kind of contract of error be- tween the deliverer and the receiver; for he who delivers knowledge desires to deliver it in such form as may be best believed, and not as may be most conveniently examined; and he who receives know- ledge desires present satisfaction, without waiting for due enquiry and so rather not to doubt, than not to err; glory making the deliverer careful not to lay open his weakness, and sloth making the receiver unwilling to try his strength.' Scientifically speaking, there can be no such thing as orthodox or unorthodox scholarship. Such phrases belong to the bygone age of the ecclesiastical pedagogue. The man who allows his inferences to crystallize into an ' orthodox opinion ' is on the highroad to oblivion, or is courting the ridicule of posterity. Literary history is a science. It is a matter of facts, No lasting history can be built on opinion, and no scholarship which is afraid of enquiry can retain respect. A Shout Out that basically says : Master Boteswain ! (Bacon) A boatswain, bo's'n, bos'n, or bosun, also known as a deck boss, or a qualified member of the deck department, is the most senior rate of the deck department and is responsible for the components of a ship's hull. The boatswain supervises the other members of the ship's deck department, and typically is not a watchstander, except on vessels with small crews. Additional duties vary depending upon ship, crew, and circumstances.Wikipedia Thanks to the A. Phoenix team for The Tempest Graphics below

  6. The Full English translation of Bacon Shakespeare and Cervantes by Alfred Von Weber Ebenhof, 1917 translated by Arthur B. Cornwall , 1935 was the first book published (in German) that challenged the authorship of Don Quioxte, The book will be made available for the readers of sirbacon.org sometime this year. Francis Carr is the author of the second book that challenged Cervantes' authorship , Who Wrote Don Quixote? https://sirbacon.org/carrbook.htm
  7. PREFACE TO : Bacon Shakespeare and Cervantes by Alfred Von Weber-Ebenhof The Shakespeare and Cervantes celebrations of the year 1916 have furnished the proof that with regard to the true significance of both of these world-famous names, doubt and fog exist in public opinion, to clear away which is the important task of the present time. When it is considered that the world-renowned works as­sociated with both names are compositions of first rank which possess the highest value for the spiritual uplift of mankind, it can be with confidence asserted that here without doubt we have the greatest literary-historical question of to-day, which must lay claim to the liveliest Interest of every cultured person. To a desire to make the result of studies to that end useful to widest circles, to spur to broader inquiry those who are of similar mind and to break a path for the formation of a group aiming at this, the foregoing sug­gestions owe their origin. In this sense, without prejudice, critically and bene­volently, may they be received. THE AUTHOR.
  8. 'There is no Shakespeare connection to Freemasons.' "It is an immense ocean that surrounds the island of Truth." -Francis Bacon I've met my share of "Laurel & Hardy" type Freemasons that have more interest in Casino Nights with their brethren than studying Alfred Dodd's works https://sirbacon.org/downloads/Dodd-Alfred-Shakespeare-Creator-of-Freemasonry.pdf and George Tudhope's Bacon-Masonry https://sirbacon.org/tudhope.htm. They just need the right oars in the water to begin the journey thru the Pillars of Hercules. A great gap exists that is Lodged in their history and closed attitude. The right response from them would be : " we don't know and would be open to an advancement in learning, so where can we be directed to read a worthy brother's work on the matter?"

Keep the debate and passion coming, whatever your view! That's the beauty of Bacon's legacy. Keep sharing and if you tweet, I will retweet. I have been contacted by the chair of the SFB society who is very keen to help and spread the word across the world. Happy to do a Skype chat with you all one day! That would be FUN! Take care Tom May 1, 2023
