Anthony Hamilton (1645?–1719)

Hamilton, Anthony. An English author; born in Tipperary, Ireland, about 1645; died at St. Germain-en-Laye, France, in 1719. Of a Royalist family, and forced to live in France from childhood till the Restoration, his wit and moral tone are rather French than English. His ‘Memoirs of the Count de Grammont’ (1713) has been universally read and admired; and his mock-Oriental tales are full of grace and subtle irony. (See Critical and Biographical Introduction).
