William Heath (c. 1794 - 1840) was an ex-Captain of Dragoons, illustrator of colour-plate books, and prolific caricaturist. From around 1827 he used the pseudonym Paul Pry (from the name of a character in a comedy of 1825 by John Poole, that became a tag used for any very inquisitive person) with the emblem of a small man holding a walking stick in a lower corner of his plates.
