George Turberville Love Poems

George Turberville,  (1540 - <1597) was an English poet, second son of Nicholas Turberville of Whitchurch, Dorset, who belonged to an old Dorsetshire family, the D'Urbervilles of Thomas Hardy's novel, Tess of the d'Urbervilles.

Turberville became a scholar of Winchester College in 1554, and in 1561 was made a fellow of New College, Oxford. In 1562 he began to study law in London, and gained a reputation, according to Anthony à Wood, as a poet and man of affairs. He accompanied Thomas Randolph on a special mission to Moscow to the court of Ivan the Terrible in 1568. Of his Poems describing the Places and Manners of the Country and People of Russia mentioned by Wood, only three metrical letters describing his adventures survive, and these were reprinted in Hakluyt's Voyages (1589).
