Harvey, Gabriel

(?1550-1631)
   Born at Saffron Walden, Essex, the son of a master rope-maker, he graduated B.A. from Christ's College, Cambridge in 1569; he was elected a fellow of Pembroke Hall, Cambridge, in 1570, was granted an M.A. in 1573, and elected a fellow of Trinity Hall in 1578. He and Edmund Spenser (see entry) formed a friendship that lasted until Spenser died. Sir James Croft and the Earl of Oxford were much displeased at satirical allusions in some of his poems (printed, he alleged, without his permission), but friends interceded and he escaped punishment. He died at Saffron Walden and is buried there. Some Latin publications: Rhetor sive, 1577. Ciceronianus sive, 1577. Dierum Oratio de Natura, 1577. Smithus, vel Musarum Lachrymæ pro Obitu honoratiss.
