Granville Sharp (1735 - 1813) see Wikipedia is famous for his stoical labours in eradicating slavery and for his energetic achievement in re-patriating former slaves to Sierra Leone. Although he has a memorial in Westminster Abbey, I would suggest that he also well deserves a statue to himself in Bristol. (And I am informed that there is now a vacant space for one in that city).
Above and beyond such admirable exploits, Granville Sharp found the time and the energy to write numerous books on Christian matters, notably his studiously researched book on the Greek article and how an understanding of its use is necessary to properly appreciate passages of the bible that refer to the Deity of Jesus Christ.
His findings on the subject are commonly called Sharp's Rule.
This labour of love was fiercely opposed by one Thomas Pearne who deliberately hid behind the pseudonym 'Gregory Blunt' - an obvious mockery of the name of the noble Granville Sharp.
I have been attempting to research Thomas Pearne and I would have liked to make a link to Wikipedia, but I cannot find anything to link to. In fact I can find nothing - anywhere - about Thomas Pearne. He appears (to me, at the present time) to have left no footprint on earth other than in the guise of 'Gregory Blunt' and his adversarial writings against the good Granville.
Can anyone point me in the direction of any worthy achievements or any documents worth reading, other than the contradictory communications made against Sharp, under the blunt pseudonym, which caused the good Granville to have to laboriously answer, publicly, on the behalf of his own researched findings ?
EDIT : See @Lesley 's comment below which indicates at least six letters were sent to Granville Sharp by Thomas Pearne, under the pseudonym 'Gregory Blunt', every single one of them being adversarial.
