Henry Charles Beeching

Henry Charles Beeching

Henry Charles Beeching (15 May 1859 - 1919) was an English clergyman, author and poet. He was educated at the City of London School and at Balliol College, Oxford. He took holy orders in 1882, and began work in a Liverpool parish. He later became Dean of Norwich. He gave the Clark Lecture in 1900 on "The history of lyrical poetry in England". He wrote a book on Francis Atterbury.

To him is attributed the popular epigram on Benjamin Jowett: :First come I; my name is Jowett.:There's no knowledge but I know it.:I am master of this college::What I don't know isn't knowledge.

This is the first verse of "The Masque of B-ll--l" [ [http://rpo.library.utoronto.ca/poem/2735.html The Masque of B-ll--l online] ] (1880), a scurrilous undergraduate production in 40 verses satirising Balliol figures. It was suppressed at the time; later research has given Beeching credit for 19 of those.
