Charles John Cutcliffe Wright Hyne was an author who also went by the pen name Weatherby Chesney. He is arguably best known as the author of The Lost Continent: The Story of Atlantis. He is well known for his Captain Kettle stories and The Recipe for Diamonds. Hyne was born May 11, 1866. He married Mary Elizabeth Haggas, who died in 1938. They had a son named Charles Godfrey Haggas Cutcliffe Hyne (1 December 1897 - 21 November 1916), who was injured in the Battle of the Somme and died of his injuries.
