Fellows, Sir Charles (1779-1860), traveller and antiquary, was born at Nottingham. As a youth he travelled much, and then settled in London in 1820. In 1827 he visited Switzerland, Italy, Greece, and the Levant, and some of his sketches were utilised to illustrate Childe Harold. In 1838 he made some important discoveries in Asia Minor, and brought back from Lycia marbles that are now in the British Museum. He was knighted in 1845, and passed the latter part of his life in the Isle of Wight. Among his works are Travels and Researches in Asia Minor and Coins of Ancient Lycia.
