Evelyn, John
(31 oct. 1620, Wotton, Surrey, Inglaterra–27 feb. 1706, Wotton).

Escritor británico. Caballero de provincia proveniente de una familia terrateniente adinerada, escribió unos 30 libros sobre las bellas artes, la silvicultura y temas religiosos. Su Diario (publicado en 1818), que llevó desde 1631 hasta 1706, es una fuente de información inapreciable sobre la vida social, cultural, religiosa y política del s. XVII. Su obra Vida de la Sra. Godolphin (publicada en 1847) es una de las biografías más conmovedoras del s. XVII.
