Author: Ebenezer Elliott

Elliott, Ebenezer, commonly known as the "Corn Law Rhymer," was born near Rotherham, Yorkshire, 1781, and died at Barnsley, in the same county, in 1849. The greater part of his life was spent in Sheffield, where he was engaged in the iron trade, and it was in a Sheffield newspaper that many of his poetical pieces first appeared. He published:— (1) Night, a Descriptive Poem, 1818. (2) The Village Patriarch, 1829. (3) Corn Law Rhymes, 1831. (4) Poems, 1834 ; and (5) More Prose and Verse, 1850. A piece or two from these works have been adapted as hymns in some Unitarian Collections. They include "Another year is swallowed by the sea," for the old and new year. -- John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)  Go to person page >
