Who first said absence makes the heart grow fonder ?

Who said absence makes heart grow fonder? I did, I have not written a blog or added to this site since 27th July, that is over two months. Have you missed me? I am back now, with lots of ideas.
The answer to: “who first said absence makes the heart grow fonder”? is:
From Francis Davison’s Poetical Rhapsody dated 1602, where the words appear as the first phrase of a poem in this edition. However,the author of this poem remains anonymous, and the identity of the writer unknown to this day. Absence makes the heart grow fonder: Isle of Beauty, fare thee well!
