Birth: Jan. 22, 1861
Death: 1923

Novelist, probably of Huguenot refugee origins. His father, a civil servant, was keeper of His Majesty's revenue records, an appointment to which his son succeeded after being called to the bar by the Inner Temple. His first book, 'The Forest Lovers', gained him great and instant fame. He wrote two more: 'The Life and Death of Richard Yea-and-Nay' and 'The Queen's Quair'. 'Song of the Plow', a poem written in 1916, is called his greatest work. He said of himself: 'I may be a good poet or a bad one; but I am a poet of sorts.'
