George Ellis (1753- 1815) was an English satirist who sometimes wrote under the pseudonym "Sir Gregory Gander." The son of a Jamaican planter, George attended Westminster School and graduated from Trinity College at Cambridge. Besides writing prose and poetry, he also produced a number of political cartoons and spent some time working in diplomatic and embassy affairs. A good friend of Sir Walter Scott, George wrote and published several books and started at least one newspaper.
