My post on Anne Law, Lady Ellenborough, is up for viewing on the English Historical Fiction Authors Blog.
As a female, I cannot help being interested in the lives of women of earlier times. Finding information about some is easy, thanks to published letters and memoirs, newspaper archives, and (because of their own personal status or accomplishments or notoriety) even biographies. With others, it is a challenge, and we may find ourselves finding that little data is available, and that as side details provided in the information related to a father, husband or other male relative. One such lady is Anne Law, Lady Ellenborough. The November/December issue of JANE AUSTEN’S WORLD magazine included a reference to her in “What Made The News in November & December 1812” that caught my attention.

These women are the stuff authors use to create memorable characters. Thirteen children by a man who ‘fixedly’ pursued her–love it!
I just wish I could have found out more.
