  MissScarlett: Per Wikipedia: <Born in the British colony of New Brunswick (now in Canada), he is the only British prime minister to have been born outside of the British Isles.>

So is his <country of origin> United Kingdom or Canada?

Jan-13-19  zanzibar: <The British Committee having charge of the testimonial for J. H. Blackburn, the celebrated English blindfold player, and who for many years was the chess champion of Great Britain, and who is
now seventy years of age, having been born December 10, 1842, announce that they have made a definite arrangement whereby an annuity of £104 will be secured to Mr. and Mrs. Blackburn for their lives, on the death of either, the same amount will be paid to the survivor for his or her life. The trustee of this fund is Mr. A. Bonar Law, M. D., a member of Parliament. Certainly the trustees have made good disposition of this fund, as both Mr.
and Mrs. Blackburn will now be absolutely secured from want for the balance of their days. >

Jul-22-20  Nosnibor: <zanzibar> There is an error in the report of the testimonial. Blackburn was born 1841 and not 1842 and therefore would have been 71 years of age upon receipt of the annuity.
