Thomas Colley Grattan (1792–1864)

Grattan, Thomas Colley. An Irish novelist and sketch-writer; born in Dublin, 1792; died in London, July 4, 1864. He abandoned law for the army, and from a wandering life obtained materials for his ‘Highways and Byways’ (1823), a collection of tales and studies that proved highly popular. ‘The Heiress of Bruges’ (1828) is a historical novel. Some less important fictions, plays, and translations of French poetry complete the sum of his literary product.
