Grimstone, Barebone

Okay, there's a whole new parliament in this history book and forget Harbottle Grimstone (whose name sadly lacks the final "e" on wikipedia, rendering it the less striking "Grimston"), because there's a new parliamentarian in town, and his name is Isaac Praise-God Barebone. Which rhymes with Harbottle Grimstone, but that's not the point. Even back then they knew that was a pretty peculiar name: "His colourful name and nature led to this nominated parliament becoming known as 'Barebone's Parliament.'"
