Trelawney Edward

Trelawney, EDWARD JOHN (1792-1881), the friend of Shelley and Byron, entered the navy at an early age, and afterwards deserted. He met Shelley at Pisa just before he was drowned, and, when the poet's body was recovered, superintended its cremation. He was afterwards with Byron in Greece, and subsequently travelled in America. He died in England, but his ashes were laid beside the graves of Shelley and Keats at Rome. He wrote Recollections of the Last days of Shelley and Byron (1858), which was republished twenty years later,
