Note

Note:

As a young man John helped his father Jarvis with his butchers business but he mistakenly thought he had a talent to be a poet. At the age of 16 he started printing fly-sheets of his verses to sell at the markets and later progressed to writing books.

In 1846 he established himself as a printer in Kirkby Stephen and called himself "Poet" Close and his house "Poet's Hall".

His prolific publications included his annual "Christmas Book". In addition to his verses and stories these gave a revue of the year's events in the district and therefore contain much biographical information on the inhabitants of the district as well as on his family and relations.

In 1858 he married Eliza Early, a young widow who had three children and together they had five of their own. During the summer months John lived at Bowness where he had a bookstall at the boat-landing stage on Lake Windermere.

The Closes and the Barkers were ardent Methodists, several of them being local preachers for many years, However John was always making disparaging remarks about Methodists while at the same time writing about "good old John Barker". At one time his sister Ann, who was married to a local preacher, George Yare, wrote to him on behalf of their mother, asking him not to be so harsh on the Methodists.

He was in the habit of letting his pen run away with his discretion and so in 1859 was taken to court in Liverpool for libel for remarks he had made about a young lady of the Kirkby Stephen district. This resulted in £300 damages against him. He also had great difficulty making a living, however, he was in the habit of saying flattering things of those in authority and in high places.

In 1860, through the influence of Lord Lonsdale, Lord Carlisle and other gentlemen, he was granted a Civil List Pension by the Prime Minister Lord Palmerston. When it was discovered by Parliament that his writing had no merit the pension was stopped and he was given £100 from the Royal Bounty by Lord Palmerston in compensation. He continued to write of this "injustice" for the remainder of his life.

Here's a little sample of his doggerel:

Around the gods, each seated on a throne,

The poets, crowned like royal kings they sat.

Around their heads a dazzling halo shone,

No needs of mortal robes, or any hat.

("Haloes, Not Hats")

... which has apparently appeared in an anthology of the best bad poetry out there...

LORD LONSDALE'S KINDNESS TO POET CLOSE.

In the preface to Mr. CLOSE's Christmas Book, which he has just sent us, we find a sketch of the LOWTHER Family, and how kind his Lordship and his son were to the Poet when last at Kirkby Stephen. On their return to Lowther Castle, VISCOUNT LOWTHER sent Mr. CLOSE a box of game, containing 2 large hares and 2 fine pheasants. On Tuesday, Dec. 16th, a hamper came by rail, with a large Stilton cheese inside, with a paper upon it, with these words, "From the Hon. Hugh LOWTHER;" which kind present no little astonished and pleased Mr. and Mrs. CLOSE.
