Henry Mackenzie

(August 1745 — January 14th, 1831)

Henry Mackenzie was a Scottish lawyer and novelist. While Mackenzie is remembered primarily as an author, most of his income and work was actually in the legal field — including the post of Comptroller of Taxes for Scotland. It was this lucrative profession that funded his writing pursuits.

Mackenzie was highly educated, married into nobility, and was also a Freemason. Other than The Man of Feeling, man of his novels are now difficult to find, having fallen out of public favour with the decline of the sentimental novel.
