Farnol, Jeffery: The Amateur Gentleman, LIT v1, 12 March 2010.

Jeffery Farnol [1878-1952]
The Amateur Gentleman [1913]

A hefty Regency tale (180,000 words) with a hero, a romance, adventures, plus a murder and the detective Mr Jasper Shrig.

From Wikipedia:
The Amateur Gentleman is an early novel by the popular author of Regency period swashbucklers, Jeffrey Farnol, published in 1913. The novel was made into a film in 1936 with Douglas Fairbanks Junior starring as the protagonist, Barnabas Barty.
The format of the novel is essentially that of a bildungsroman. It tells the story of the Barnabas Barty, the son of John Barty, the former champion boxer of England and landlord of a pub in Kent. At the start of the tale Barnabas comes fortuitously into the possession of a vast fortune - £700,000, an astronomical amount by Regency standards - and determines to use this fortune to become a gentleman. His father objects to this plan and they quarrel, and settle their differences in a round of fisticuffs, which Barnabas wins, beating his father fair and square. Barnabas sets off for London in the furtherance of his ambitions and on the way there contrives to make a number of influential friends and enemies.
