Died: Jan. 23, 1866 - Lower Halliford, Middlesex, England
The son of a London merchant, Peacock did not wish to follow his father's profession and embarked on writing poetry and some satirical romances such as Headlong Hall (1816) and Nightmare Abbey (1818), the latter of which is probably his best-known work. In all, Peacock wrote seven novels and a large amount of poetry. Some of his other novels include Maid Marian (1822), Crotchet Castle (1831) and Gryll Grange (1860). Peacock was a lifelong friend of Shelley and was named the executor of Shelley's will.
