Parker, Gilbert: Michel and Angele. V1. 19 Mar 2010

Sir Horatio Gilbert George Parker, 1st Baronet PC (November 23, 1862[citation needed] – September 6, 1932), known as Gilbert Parker, Canadian novelist and British politician, was born at Camden East, Addington, Ontario, the son of Captain J. Parker, R.A.
He was educated at Ottawa and at University of Trinity College. Parker started as a teacher at the Ontario School for the deaf and dumb (in Belleville, Ontario). From there he went on to lecture at Trinity College. In 1886 he went to Australia, and for a while became associate editor of the Sydney Morning Herald. He also traveled extensively in the Pacific, Europe, Asia, Egypt, the South Sea Islands and subsequently in northern Canada. In the early nineties he began to gain a growing reputation in London as a writer of romantic fiction.

Excerpt
If it does not seem too childish a candour to say so, 'Michel and Angele' always seems to me like some old letter lifted out of an ancient cabinet with the faint perfume of bygone days upon it. Perhaps that is because the story itself had its origin in a true but brief record of some good Huguenots who fled from France and took refuge in England, to be found, as the book declares, at the Walloon Church, in Southampton.

The Canadian Encyclopedia (http://www.thecanadianencyclopedia.c...=A1ARTA0006088) and Encyclopedia Britannica Online (http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/...Parker-Baronet) both agree Sir Gilbert was born on 23 Nov 1862 so I think you can consider this fact properly cited.

He left Canada in 1885 for Australia, was knighted in England in 1902, spent time in California working on a film of one of his novels (where he suffered in a car crash), and died in London, his real home for many years. Although he wrote about Canada a good deal, he doesn't seem to have lived here much.

A nice tribute appeared several years after his death in the Ottawa Citizen (http://news.google.ca/newspapers?id=...=horatio&hl=en).
