Romantic poet, John Keats.

Born in 1795, Keats published three books of poetry in his lifetime but was dismissed as a middle-class interloper by most critics. He had no advantages of birth, wealth or education; he lost his parents in childhood, watched one brother die of tuberculosis and the other emigrate to America. Poverty kept him from marrying the woman he loved. And he achieved lasting fame only after his early death in 1821. Yet grief and hardship never destroyed his passionate commitment to poetry. The connection with the area is that he was educated at the Revd Mr Clarke's school at Enfield, and afterwards apprenticed to Mr Hammond, a surgeon, in Church Street, Edmonton
