About Author

G. J. Whyte-Melville

George John Whyte-Melville was a Scottish novelist who was particularly interested in field sports. He also wrote poetry. He took a hiatus in the mid-1850s to serve as an officer in Turkish irregular cavalry during the Crimean War. George John Whyte-Melville was born at Mount Melville, near St Andrews, Scotland, in 1821. He was the son of Major John Whyte-Melville and Lady Catherine Anne Sarah Osborne, as well as the 5th Duke of Leeds' grandchild on his mother's side. His father was a well-known athlete and Captain of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews. When Arco Hermoso died in 1835, the marquesa was in grave financial problems, and in less than two years she married Antonio Arrom de Ayala, a much younger man. In 1849, Elizabeth Gibbs, described as "a smartly-dressed and interesting looking young woman," issued a summons for maintenance against Whyte-Melville, alleging that he was the father of her son. She reported that she had known Whyte-Melville since December 1846 and gave birth to his child on September 15, 1847. The Magistrate read other letters claimed by Gibbs to be from Whyte-Melville, in one of which the writer indicated his desire that Gibbs assign the paternity to some other person since he did not want to pay for the enjoyment of others.
