Gabriel Toyne was born in London on April 5, 1905. His father F.

He went up to Oxford University in 1925, reading History at Corpus Christi.
Rawlings was praised on all sides for her emotional and spiritual integrity. The dramatic point was that the couple were not cold by nature but passionate and sexually experienced (and the point for gossips was that the author and his leading lady were in love and that that year Rawlings and her first husband, the actor Gabriel Toyne, divorced).
