Heraud, John Abraham

(1799-1887)
   Of Huguenot descent, he was born in the parish of St. Andrews, Holborn, London. Educated privately and with a sound knowledge of German, he started writing for magazines in 1818, rather than go into business. An adherent of the philosopher Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph von Schelling (17751854), he was active in popularizing his ideas in England. His large circle of acquaintances included many poets and authors of the period. He was appointed a brother of the Carthusian Charterhouse, London, where he died. He contributed to, edited, or was critic for the following magazines: Athenæum; Christian's Monthly Magazine; Fraser's Magazine; Illustrated London News; Monthly Magazine; Quarterly; The Sunbeam, A Journal devoted to Polite Literature. Some of his poetry publications: The Legend of St. Loy with Other Poems, 1820. Tottenham, 1820. An Oration on the Death of S.T. Coleridge, 1834. The Descent into Hell, 1835. Salvator, the Poor Man of Naples, 1845. The Judgement of the Flood, 1857. The Wreck of the London, 1866. The In-Gathering, 1870. The War of Ideas, 1871.
