Edgar Fawcett was a popular minor American author. Many of his novels explore the pursuits of status and money, which he found counterproductive to American democratic ideals. Although the sheer volume of his output often led to sloppy writing and repetitive plots, Fawcett was among the first to write in a realistic or naturalistic style.

Edward Cridge (1817-1913) was born in Bratton, Fleming, Devon, on 17 December 1817, the son of John Cridge, schoolmaster. He received his early education under his father's direction, before attending schools at Worth and South Milton. He was employed as third master of the Grammar School at Oundle, Northampton, before joining Peterhouse, Cambridge. He passed the theological examination at Cambridge in 1848, and was appointed curate of the church of North Walsam, Norfolk. In 1851 he was appointed to Christ Church at West Ham, London. Cridge became chaplain to the Hudson Bay Company for Vancouver Island in 1854, and travelled to Victoria, Canada, arriving in 1855. He held regular services in New Church, which was completed in 1856, as well as carrying out ministerial work at Colwood, Esquimalt and elsewhere. He was a bishop of the Reformed Episcopal Church, 1875-1913. He died on 6 May 1913.

Edgar Fawcett grew up in Victoria, Canada, and was educated at the Collegiate College. He attended Bishop Cridge's church.
