Interesting Question of the Day – 18 February 2019

In 1880, an Irish community began a campaign of ostracising a British land agent they felt had been treating them unfairly, refusing to harvest his crops, cook his meals, wash his clothes, deliver his letters, or serve him in shops.

What was the land agent’s surname?  (His name became a word describing the campaign of exclusion.)
