Throughout his life George Borrow had many friends, although few remained in contact with him throughout his life. The following list is far from comprehensive:
Jasper Petelengro (Ambrose Smith)
Joseph John Gurney
Lluyd (Welsh Groom of Lavengro and Wild Wales)
Alfred Egmont Hake, son of Dr. Hake, who wrote two articles giving recollections of George Borrow in 1881.
