  4. James Hurdis (James)was born in 1763. He married Harriet Minet of Fulham in 1799 AB. James died very suddenly 23 December 1801 at Buckland in Berkshire, while staying at the house of his friend Dr. Rathbone. Harriet married second to a physician at Southampton.

    James Hurdis was educated at a grammar school at Chichester, and in 1780 entered St. Mary Hall, Oxford. At the close of two years residence, he was elected a demy of Magdalen College, graduated B.A. in 1785, and was for six years curate of Burwash in Sussex. In 1788 he published his "Village curate," which was favorably received and went through four editions. He thus became known to the litery world, and secured the friendship of Cowper and Hayley. A second volume, "Adriano; or the First of June" followed, and in 1790 Hurdis issued a third volume of poems. In 1791, through the interest of the Earl of Chichester, to whose son he had been a tutor, he was appointed rector of Bishopstone, and in the same year he wrote "The Tragedy of Sir Thomas More." In 1792 he lost his favorite sister, Catherine, upon whose death he published "Tears of Affliction; a Poem occasioned by the Death of a Sister tenderly loved," London, 1794. In April 1793 he was residing at Temple Cowley, near Oxford; in november of the same year he was appointed professor of poetry in that university. In 1800, a year after his marriage, Hurdis printed at his private press at Bishopstone, his poem entitled "The Favorite Village."

    There is a portrait of James Hurdis engraved by his elder son after a drawing by Sharples, and a tablet to his memmory in Bishopstone church bears an inscription in verse composed by Hayley.

    Two children of James and Harriet Hurdis were baptized at Saint James, Cowley, Oxford (1800-1801).

    James was a year old when his father died, and, his mother married soon after to a physician at southampton, where he was educated. James afterwards spent a few years in France. He was then articled to charles Heath, the engraver, by whom he was instructed in drawing and etching. Though only working as an amateur, Hurdis was very industrious, and he excelled in humorous subjects in the style of George Cruikshank, whose acquaintance he formed at an early period. He resided chiefly at Newick, near Lewes, and etched a large number of portraits of local nobilities, and views of buildings in sussex. Some of these appeared in the early volumes of the collections of the Sussex Archaeological Society, of which he was a member. Towards the end of his life Hurdis removed to Southampton, where he died.
