The story was first serialized in monthly parts, July 1857-April 1859. Davenport Dunn is a rogue, loosely based on the notorious Irish politician and swindler John Sadlier. In Lever's novel, Dunn is a tycoon banker who has enriched himself at the expense of his fellow Irishmen after the calamities of the 1840's.
