From 1896 to 1901 he was Keeper of Lands, Revenues, Records and Enrolments, a government post as adviser on matters of medieval law.
Hewlett married Hilda Beatrice Herbert on 3 January 1888 in St. Peter's Church, Vauxhall, where her father was the incumbent vicar. The couple had two children, a daughter, Pia, and a son, Francis, but separated in 1914.
He settled at Broad Chalke, Wiltshire. His friends included Evelyn Underhill, and Ezra Pound, whom he met at the Poet's Club in London.
NY Times original review excerpt:
Contains original illustrations by William Henry Hyde. First published in 1908. Taken from the Gutenberg source files. I used an original illustration as cover.
Al Haines from Project Gutenberg made the most excellent source file.
