Edward Young was a poet, dramatist and satirist, born at Upham near Winchester. He was the son of Edward Young, the rector of Upham, (who was later Dean of Salisbury and chaplain to William and Mary). In 1702 Young went to New College, Oxford, but moved to Corpus Christi, and then to a law fellowship at All Souls in 1708. After failing to obtain sufficient patronage or preferment, Young took holy orders when in his forties, becoming chaplain to George II in 1728. He received the living of Welwyn, which was in the gift of All Souls, in 1731, and remained there until his death at the age of 81
