John Carr

a.k.a. Sir John Carr

Author Code: ESJC

Born: Dec. 6, 1772 - London, England

Died: Jul. 17, 1832 - London, England

Educated at Rugby School, Carr began an apprenticeship with a solicitor in Devon. He then practiced law in London for a time before being called to the bar at Middle Temple. Suffering from ill health he gave up the law and began traveling around Europe. He started to publish travel books, beginning with The Stranger in Paris (1803), which was reasonably successful. He was knighted in 1806 and would go on to publish numerous travel books until 1811 when he married an Essex heiress. Thereafter his writing declined and after his wife's death, Carr began to suffer from depression and eventually died at his home in London. His other works include A Northern Summer (1805), The Stranger in Ireland (1806), A Tour Through Holland (1807), Caledonian Sketches (1808), Poems (1809) and Descriptive Travels in Spain (1811).
