He trained as a lawyer, but the legal profession held no attraction for him. His first success as a writer came with Rookwood in 1834, which features Dick Turpin as its leading character. A stream of 39 novels followed, the last of which appeared in 1881. The Miser's Daughter was published in a serialized form in the Ainsworth's Magazine with some overlap with Windsor Castle. George Cruikshank served as illustrator. The work was later published in novel format, but it did not include all of the illustrations used in the magazine. The novel is a historical romance that describes a young man pursuing the daughter of a miserly rich man during the 18th century.
