Joseph Relph

Joseph Relph (3 December 1712 – 26 June 1743) was a Cumberland poet (his first name is given as Josiah in later editions of the ''Dictionary of National Biography''). His poetical works were first published in 1747 under the title of ''A Miscellany of Poems''. They were edited by Thomas Sanderson, who supplied a biography of the author and a pastoral elegy on his death. A second edition appeared at Carlisle in 1798, with the biography and engravings by Thomas Bewick.

Relph's best verses are in the dialect of his native county; they show talent and appreciation of natural beauties. Provided by Wikipedia
