Charles Heavysege (1816–1876)

Heavysege, Charles (1816–1879), was born in Huddersfield, England, and came to Canada in 1853, settling in Montreal, where he worked at his trade of cabinet-making. In England he had already published one book, ‘The Revolt of Tartarus’ and four years after his arrival in Canada he completed and published his poetic drama ‘Saul.’ He also published a volume of sonnets (1855), ‘Jephtha’s Daughter’ (1855), and ‘Count Filippo; or, The Unequal Marriage’ (1860).
