Not definitive, but it's definitely later than that. In the
beginning of Black Hearts in Battersea there's a note saying it's set
near the beginning of the nineteenth century, and there's a family
tree of the Dukes of Battersea (p. 106 of the Yearling pb - chapter
6) which shows Justin as born 1818.
