an intimate companion of Whewell. He became rector of Hurstmonceaux in 1832. He was author, with his brother Augustus William Hare (1792–1834, biographer and compiler of travel books), of the popular Guesses at Truth (1827), a collection of observations on philosophy, religion, literature, language, and related subjects. With Thirlwall he was joint editor of the Philological Museum (1832–3), which made some effort to introduce the much neglected new continental philology of Grimm. He edited Sterling's Essays and Tales (1848) with a memoir, to which Carlyle replied with his Life of John Sterling (1851).
