Abstract or Description

This paper explores historical precedents for the characters of Bardolph and Poins in Shakespeare's Henry IV. The names Bardolph and Pointz were intimately connected with Hoo in Kent; specifically the area immediately adjacent to Cooling Castle, the seat of Sir John Oldcastle: the original name of the character we now know as Falstaff.
