Kent Bishop resides in a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia, USA, where he was born. He has four children: two girls, two boys, and six grandchildren. He is a graduate of Duke University (A.B. with Distinction in Economics) and Harvard Law School (J.D.) where he cross-registered into Harvard Business School. He is a member of the Bar of the United States Supreme Court. During the pandemic he continues to run, bike and golf weekly. After second year of law school he was employed by Shell International Petroleum Co., Ltd. in London. His time abroad peaked his initial interest in researching his family's Anglo-Saxon descent from Domesday ancestors. In 2014, he spent two months in the English East Midlands, home of his Saxon ancestors, visiting friends, relatives, historians, former business associates, and historical sites. He returned in 2018 for two weeks and also visited Scotland and Ireland. A trip to Hawai'i occurred in 2005.
An extremely valuable hoard of gold and silver coins and religious treasure is dug up in the ancient East Midlands village of Harpole, Northamptonshire on property now owned by a female Shell Oil Company lawyer. No coin is dated later than King Edward the Confessor’s reign (1042-1066). News reports go worldwide. A direct patrilineal descendant of the Saxon village owner, an American, makes claim to the hoard. Unwilling to allow such a large amount of treasure to be exported from the United Kingdom, particularly after Brexit, the British Crown in retaliation files a claim to the hoard on the ground that William the Conqueror validly confiscated the entire village after the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Roman Catholic Church and the Church of England file claims to the religious objects in the hoard. Litigation ensues. Notwithstanding the drama surrounding them, the female landowner and the American gradually find themselves falling in love – due to shared interests – despite their conflicting interests in the hoard.
Having resolved his claim to the pre-1066 Harpole Hoard (Doomsday Revenge), the American makes demand on the British Crown for compensation for William the Conqueror’s confiscation of his Saxon ancestor’s seven villages in southern Northamptonshire. The demand is for the present proportionate value of the properties – worth over 400 million pounds sterling. The Crown rebuts that the fair market value in 1086, as stated in the Great Domesday Book, would be 14 million pounds sterling today, but in any event William’s right of conquest eliminated the claim. Furthermore, the Crown perceives this demand as a financial threat to the country in leaving the European Union. The Crown dispatches MI6 (Secret Intelligence Service) with instructions to thwart the litigation. The American’s demand denied and person imperiled, he nevertheless files suit in the High Court of Justice. Numerous claimants seek intervention. Throughout this process and its strains on their relationship the American and the female Shell Oil lawyer draw ever closer.
On vacation in Hawai'i, an American, his English fiancée, and their friends are startled by the eruption of Kīlauea on Kona, but more surprised by mysterious encounters with ruffians. Returning to the States the American is advised to solicit support from Members of Parliament for legislation which would compensate him for his claim that William the Conqueror illegally confiscated his ancestor’s seven properties in southern Northamptonshire. The American travels surreptitiously to the British Isles to drum up support for the bill. Despite precautions he is harassed by attempts to dissuade him from his quest. While his fiancée has “paused” the engagement due to flirtation from a baronet, the American is rescued by a savvy Scots lady from a treacherous encounter.
The American’s litigation for compensation is delayed by an English judge’s reluctance to follow normal procedure who refers the claim to Parliament. The House of Commons, however, is overcome by complications from Brexit. In light of an overwhelming Tory victory at the 2019 general election, the Government procures the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union, and the Anglo-Saxon Committee re-starts hearings. But soon these efforts are sidelined by the coronavirus pandemic originating in Wuhan, China. Will the American’s engagement with the female Shell Oil Company lawyer be resuscitated and his claim validated as they await future developments over which they have no control?
