Nicholas HARE 1582-1622

Biographical Note

Born in Blackfriars, London, son of John Hare, clerk of the Court of Wards and Liveries. Matriculated at Christ's College, Cambridge 1599, but did not graduate; admitted at the Inner Temple, 1596. He worked with his father for a while before travelling in Europe around 1610. He is remembered today as a poet, whose verses turn up in numerous manuscript collections of early 17th-century verse.


Hare's will has no specific mention of books; the residue of his goods and estate went to his friend John Harvey, about whom "not much is known" (Carey). The extent of his library is not known; a number of his books were acquired by John Morris (d.1658).
