George Payne Rainsford James, a London-born novelist and historian, was born on August 9, 1799, and died on June 9, 1860.

His father was a doctor who had been in the navy and had fought alongside Benedict Arnold in the Battle of Groton Heights in America during the Revolutionary War. James went to the Putney school run by Reverend William Carmalt. He became passionate in learning new languages, such as Arabic, Persian, Greek, and Latin. When he was younger, he also studied medicine, but his preferences took him in a different way. His father, who had served in the navy himself, opposed his desire to enlist, which ultimately led to him being able to enlist in the army.
