Background / Comments
This word comes from the play Conscious Lovers by Richard Steele; it was an imaginary estate in the play. It must have made quite an impression, as the word came into usage shortly thereafter the play came out.
I came across the word importunate (adj), but I know the noun version (importunity) from the Bible, so I knew this word. Did you?
