    Is it possible (likely?) that Thomas Lanchester is a descendant of William [of] Lanchester? The likelihood of inherited ability certainly is suggestive. Also the 'natural' approach to magic via the language of birds seems like an older kind of magic.

    Mr Norrell had a particular dislike of this work, which he deprecated more than any other of the author's books: Jonathan Strange on the other hand approved it entirely, going so far as to call it "one of the most perfect things of its kind. It conveys to the reader a vivid sense of the eeriness and wonder of John Uskglass's magic."[38]
    John Childermass, that faithful adherent of the Raven King, also possesses a copy. He values it enough to pack it among those few items he takes with him when he leaves Mr. Norrell's service[63].
