Dates of existence


Jonathan Henry Lovett was the son of Reverend Verney Lovett, chaplain to the Prince of Wales. Born in 1779, he travelled to Bombay at the age of seventeen and became a writer in the service of the East India Company. His facility for languages caused him to be selected by the Marquess Wellesley, India's Governor General, as the political and commercial resident of the court of Persia, at Boshire. Illness curtailed his appointment and he died at sea in 1805 at the age of twenty-seven on his return to England.
