Educated at Eton, the Royal Military Academy at Woolwich and Trinity College, Cambridge, Payn graduated in 1853. While at Cambridge, he published his first poem, The Poet's Death, in Leigh Hunt's Journal (1851) and followed with his first book of poetry, Stories from Boccaccio and Other Poems, which he published at his own expense. The book was well-received and Payn decided then on a literary career. He married Louisa Edlin in 1854. Payn became acquainted with Harriet Martineau and Mary Mitford and they in turn introduced him to many notables of the time including matthew Arnold, Thomas de Quincey and Arthur Clough. In 1858, he became the co-editor of Chamber's Journal and the following year became its sole editor. He continued in this role until 1874. In 1878, he published his best-known work, By Proxy, which was very popular. In 1883, Payn became the editor of Cornhill Magazine and was responsible for introducing many talented writers to the public including Conan Doyle, H. Rider Haggard and Stanley Weyman. Payn suffered from chronic rheumatism and was forced to retire to his home in 1896. His other works include Lost Sir Massingbird (1864), Married Beneath Him (1865), Lighyts and Shadows of London Life (1867), Carlyon's Year (1868), Murphy's Master (1873), High Spirits (1879), Some Private Views (1881), Some Literary Recollections (1884), The Talk of the Town (1885), The Disappearance of George Driffel (1896) and The Backwater of Life (1899 Posthumous).
