About Falkner:
 John Meade Falkner (8 May 1858 - 22 July 1932) was an English novel-ist and poet, best known for his 1898 novel, Moonfleet. An extremelysuccessful businessman as well, he became chairman of the arms manu-facturer Armstrong Whitworth during World War I. He was born inManningford Bruce, Wiltshire, spent much of his childhood inDorchester and Weymouth and educated at Marlborough College andHertford College, Oxford, graduating with a degree in history in 1882.After Oxford, he was a master at Derby School, then went to Newcastleas tutor to the family of Sir Andrew Noble, who ran Armstrongs of New-castle, one of the largest arms manufacturers in the world. Falkner even-tually followed him as chairman in 1916, hard though this is to equatewith his interest in poetry, architecture and heraldry. In his businesstravels round the world, Falkner brought back antiquarian treasures of all kinds. After his retirement as chairman in 1921 he became HonoraryReader in Paleography at Durham University, as well as HonoraryLibrarian to the Dean and Chapter Library. Falkner fell in love withDurham and, although he spent his later years traveling frequently, hecalled Durham his home, living in the Divinity House on Palace Green infront of the cathedral from 1902 until his death. There is a commemor-ative plaque there, while his monument is in the South Cloister of thecathedral. In addition to his three novels and his poetry, he also wrotethree topographical guides (Oxfordshire, Bath and Berkshire) and a His-tory of Oxfordshire. Source: Wikipedia
