Coulson Kernahan (1858–1943) was an English novelist, born at Ilfracombe, Devon, and educated privately by his father and at St Albans School. He was associated with Frederick Locker-Lampson on a new edition of Lyra Elegantiarum, contributed to many periodicals, wrote humorous verse, and gained wide popularity for his fiction, much of it orientated toward Christianity, and some of which has been translated into French, German, Dutch, Hungarian, and Chinese. He is also known for being the copy-editor of Oscar Wilde's 1891 version of The Picture of Dorian Gray.
