Author: Thomas Chatterton

Chatterton, Thomas, was born at Bristol, Nov. 20, 1752. He received his early education at Colston's charity school in that city, and then was articled to an attorney. In April, 1770, he proceeded to London, where he earned but little through his literary labours. Overcome at last by poverty and distress, he poisoned himself in August the same year. He was buried at St. Andrew's, Holborn. His Miscellanies in Prose and Verse were published posthumously in 1778. From this work two hymns have come into common use:— 1. Almighty Framer of the skies. (1768.) Christmas. 2. O God, Whose thunder shakes the sky. (1768.) Resignation. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)  Go to person page >
