English Heroes

Vernon Coleman

My book Vernon Colemanís English Heroes contains biographies of 100 English heroes who made a great contribution to life in England and the World.

It was my original intention to publish the book of my chosen 100 in order of precedence. But when I found that the order of my list was changing several times a day I realised that it would be much better, and fairer all round, to publish the main list alphabetically and, purely for fun, to include my 100 in order of precedence at the back of the book.

Here are the top 20 names on my list:

1. Isaac Newton
2. Charles Darwin
3. Charles Dickens
4. Oliver Cromwell
5. William Shakespeare
6. Thomas Malthus
7. Winston Churchill
8. Queen Elizabeth I
9. Francis Bacon
10. Michael Faraday
11. Alfred the Great
12. Charles Babbage
13. Joseph Lister
14. Queen Victoria
15. Robert Hooke
16. William Cobbett
17. James Cook
18. Francis Drake
19. Walter Ralegh
20. Stephen Langton
