Cavendish George

Cavendish, George, author, was born in the beginning of the sixteenth century. In 1527 he entered the service of Cardinal Wolsey as his gentleman-usher. After the cardinal's fall he retired to Suffolk, where he lived with his wife, a niece of Sir Thomas More. He retained a strong affection for his late master, and wrote his biography, one of the most interesting productions of its kind in the English language.
