Warburton, Rowland Eyles Egerton, fox-hunter and poet, whose social background and education provided the perfect basis for his reputation as a poet of the hunting field, and he was known as the poet laureate of the Tarporley Hunt Club. He wrote verses for pleasure and for the enjoyment of his fellow huntsmen, and his Hunting Songs, first published in 1834, ran to eight editions in his lifetime.
