Sir William Jones (1746 - 1794) was an English philologist and scholar of Indian language and culture. He is one of the first people credited with establishing a linguistic link between Latin, Greek, and Sanskrit, which he also extended to Gothic, Celtic, and Persian. From his initial theories (among some others) sprang the field of Proto-Indo-European studies. 
And he was a looker to boot.
