Note 6 to the author's "Great Expectations in "The Tuggses at Ramsgate," or, The Importance of Being Cymon"

Julia Cresswell, Tuttle Dictionary of First Names (Boston: Charles E. Tuttle, 1992) 38. That the subject of a famous 'rape', that in Pope's The Rape of the Lock (1712-14), is named "Belinda" is probably more than coincidence.
