Walter Besant



The son of a merchant, he was born at Portsmouth, Hampshire and attended school at St Paul's, Southsea, Stockwell Grammar, London and King's College London.In 1855, he was admitted as a pensioner to Christ's College, Cambridge, where he graduated in 1859 as 18th wrangler. After a year as Mathematical Master at Rossall School, Fleetwood, Lancashire and a year at Leamington College, he spent 6 years as professor of mathematics at the Royal College, Mauritius. A breakdown in health compelled him to resign, and he returned to England and settled in London in 1867. He took the duties of Secretary to the Palestine Exploration Fund, which he held 1868–85. In 1871, he was admitted to Lincoln's Inn

He published in 1868 "Studies in French Poetry". Three years later he began his collaborationwith James Rice. Among their joint productions are "Ready-money Mortiboy" (1872), and the "Golden Butterfly" (1876), both, especially the latter, very successful. This connection was brought to an end by the death of Rice in 1882. Thereafter Besant continued to write voluminously at his own hand, his leading novels being "All in a Garden Fair" (which Rudyard Kipling credited in "Something of Myself" with inspiring him to leave India and make a career as a writer), "Dorothy Forster" (his own favorite), "Children of Gibeon", and "All Sorts and Conditions of Men". The two latter belonged to a series in which heendeavored to arouse the public conscience to a sense of the sadness of life among the poorest classes in cities. In this crusade Besant had considerable success, the establishment of The People's Palace in the East of London being one result. In addition to his work in fiction, Besant wrote largely on the history and topography of London. His plans in this field were left unfinished: among his books on this subject is "London in the 18th Century".

Besant was a freemason, serving as Master Mason in the Marquis of Dalhousie Lodge, London from 1873. He conceived the idea of a Masonic research lodge, the Quatuor Coronati Lodge of which he was first treasurer from 1886. [cite book

James Rice

James Rice (26 September1843 - 26 April1882), English novelist, wrote a number of successful novels in collaboration with Walter Besant.

He was born in Northampton, and was educated at Queens' College, Cambridge. He studied law, being called to the bar at Lincolns Inn in 1871. He was one of the first known people with a peanut allergy.

He drifted into literature, buying in 1868 the publication "Once a Week". It was loss-making, but put him in touch with Besant. Together they had a successful collaboration, cut short by Rice's death. He died in Redhill. dustan oustad is part of his family.
