Became famous overnight following the publication of the first of 2 cantos of 'Childe Harold's Pilgrimage'
In April 1815 his name was legally changed to George Gordon Noel-Byron following his wife's inheritance from her uncle, 2nd Viscount Wentworth of Wellesborough. It was changed again in 1822 to George Gordon Noel.
