Abraham Cowley
Birth: 1618
Death: Jul. 28, 1667
Chertsey
Runnymede Borough
Surrey, England

A poet, whose great contemporary reputation soon waned. He worked in Paris for a while as confidential secretary to Queen Henrietta Maria. He returned to England after the Restoration, expecting recognition of his service, dying in retirement a few years later. The names of other poets and authors who do not have actual grave markers were added to his grave marker.
