Possible real identity of Hawberk.

The Marquis of Avonshire is reported by popular opinion to have killed his wife's traducer (slanderer) and headed for Australia, where he died soon afterward.

There is no 'Avonshire' in England, although it could be a facet of the alternate timeline in which The Repairer of Reputations seems to take place.
