- Existence: ? 1735 - 1807
Edward King (1735?-1807), miscellaneous writer, elected Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1767, was temporarily President in 1784, until Lord De Ferrars could assume Presidency; but on seeking re-election in opposition to Ferrars, King was massively defeated. His speech on quitting the chair was printed, and he ceased to make communications to the Society thereafter.
