John Wilmot

a.k.a. 2nd Earl of Rochester

Author Code: EJWI

Born: Apr. 1, 1647 - Ditchley House, Oxfordshire, England

Died: Jul. 26, 1680 - Woodstock, Oxfordshire, England

Privately tutored, he attended the grammar school in Burford from the age of 9. Later, he was admitted as a Fellow commoner to Wadham College, Oxford and in 1661 was awarded an honorary M.A. King Charles II awarded Wilmot an annual pension of £500 as an act of gratitude to Wilmot's father Henry, the first Earl of Rochester and friend of the King. The King then sent Wilmot on a three-year grand tour of Europe. Wilmot served in the Navy during the Second Dutch War in 1665. Because of his heroics, the King appointed him a Gentleman of the Bedchamber, which increased his pension to £1000 annually and granted him lodgings in Whitehall. He eloped with the wealthy Elizabeth Malet in 1667, and they had four children. Known for his wild life style, Wilmot contracted syphillus, gonorrhea and other diseases during the next few years which contributed to his early death at 33. His works include A Satire Against Mankind (1675) and a variety of translations and poetry. His collected works were released posthumously in 1718.
