About Author

James Payn

James Payn was an English novelist and editor. He edited several magazines, including Chambers' Journal in Edinburgh and Cornhill Magazine in London. Payn's father, William Payn, was a clerk for the Thames Commissioners and once treasurer of Berkshire. Payn attended Eton before enrolling in the Military Academy at Woolwich, but his health did not allow him to pursue a military career, so he transferred to Trinity College, Cambridge, in 1847. He was one of the most popular men who served as President of the Union. Before arriving to Cambridge, he had written several rhymes in Leigh Hunt's Journal, and while still an undergraduate, he published a volume of Stories from Boccaccio in 1852 and a collection of poems in 1853. In the year Payn left Cambridge, he met and married Miss Louisa Adelaide Edlin (born 1830 or 1831), the sister of Judge Sir Peter Edlin, subsequently head of the London Quarter Sessions. They had nine children, the third of whom, Alicia Isabel (d. 1898), married The Times editor George Earle Buckle. Payn thereafter settled in the Lake District to pursue a literary career, contributing regularly to Household Words and Chambers' Journal. In 1858, he relocated to Edinburgh to serve as joint editor of the latter, and he became its sole editor in 1860, with great success for 15 years. Meanwhile, he relocated to London in 1861.
