William Hayley was an English writer, best known as the friend and biographer of William Cowper. Hayley won the fame he enjoyed amongst his contemporaries by his poetical ESSAYS AND EPISTLES; a POETICAL EPISTLE TO AN EMINENT PAINTER (1780), addressed to his friend the painter George Romney. In 1800 Hayley also lost his natural son, Thomas Alphonso Hayley, to whom he was devotedly attached. He had been a pupil of John Flaxman's, to whom Hayley's ESSAY ON SCULPTURE (1800) is addressed. Flaxman introduced Hayley to William Blake who engraved the illustrations for the LIFE OF COWPER. This, Hayleys' best known work, was published in 1803-1804.

Hayley, William Hayley (1745-1820) was a poet and biographer. His first published work was an "Ode on the Birth of the Prince of Wales." He also wrote plays, which, however, were generally unsuccessful. As a result, Hayley concentrated on writing poetry, especially epitaphs, odes, and sonnets. Successful works include an Essay on Epic Poetry (1781), a didactic poem titled Triumphs of Temper (1781), and an anonymous Essay on Old Maids (3 vols., 1785). Ub 1790, he was offered the poet laureateship in 1790, which he turned down. He also offered friendship and patronage to writers such as George Romney, William Cowper, and William Blake. He died in 1820 of a bladder-stone, leaving his memoirs, written in the third person, which were published in 1823.

William Hodges (1744-1797) was a painter. At age fourteen, he was apprenticed to the landscape painter Richard Wilson. In 1772, he joined Captain James Cook as a draughtsman on Cook's second voyage to the south Pacific (1772-5), during which time he made sketches and paintings of the islands and indigenous people. On his return to England, he supervised the engraving of plates from his work as illustrations for Cook's official account, A voyage towards the south pole, and round the world: performed in his majesty's ships the Resolution and Adventure in the years 1772, 1773, 1774 and 1775 (1779). For the next two years, he continued to produce oil paintings for the Admiralty. In 1779 he travelled to India, where he remained for several years, eventually publishing several successful works with illustrations concerning his travels there. Hodges became an associate of the Royal Academy in 1786 and a Royal Academician in 1789. In 1795, following a setback, Hodges left the art profession to open a bank, which however failed shortly thereafter. He died in 1797 of fever and gout.
