Maxwell was born in Newry, co. Down, in 1792. He wrote a variety of sketches and novels, chiefly on sporting and military subjects. His ‘Wild Sports of the West’ brought him some reputation as a sporting and military novelist, and earned the praises of Professor Wilson in ‘Noctes Ambrosianæ’ (November 1832) as the work of a true sportsman.
