in consequence of the missive, Maybe not So Used to Fancy Carriages, penned by Jane Marie
1476 times from 1st Jan 1800 to 1st May 1814 in the British Library's 19th century newspaper collection, so its not just Mrs Elton...coachmakers make a distinction between Baroches, Landaus, and Baroche-Landaus. They seem rather heavy (although you can harness two or four horses to them, four seems more normal, and some advertisments for horses boast mention their ability to pull Baroche-Landeaus, as if this was some test of strength)
