PENNOCK, Barclay, author, born in East Marlborough, Chester County, Pennsylvania, 26 January, 1821: died there, 9 March, 1859. He received a classical education, then went to Europe and spent two years in the study of the language and literature of Germany, France, and Italy. While abroad he was one of the travelling party that was led by Bayard Taylor, the story of which tour is told in the latter's " Views Afoot." In 1851 he made a second trip to Europe, where he passed several years, much of his time being spent in Norway and Sweden studying the language of those countries. On his return to the United States he engaged in literary pursuits, and translated Keyser's "Religion of the Northmen," with additions (New York, 1857). At his death he left ready for the press two other translations, one a romance of Iceland about the time of the introduction of Christianity there, and a volume of Scandinavian folk-lore.
