James Bramston (circa 1694 - 1744), satirist, educated at Westminster School and Oxford, took orders and was later Vicar of Harting. His poems are The Art of Politics (1729), in imitation of Horace, and The Man of Taste (1733), in imitation of Alexander Pope. He also parodied Phillips's Splendid Shilling in The Crooked Sixpence. His verses have some liveliness.
