1775, Jan 281861, Mar 31/Apr 1
an English novelist, who is chiefly remembered in connection with a Diary illustrative of the Times of George IV (1838). When aged twenty-two she produced a volume of poems, to which, however, she did not affix her name. After her marriage with Bury she was the author of various contributions to light literature; some of her novels were very popular, although now almost forgotten. When the Diary illustrative of the Times of George IV appeared in two volumes in 1838, it was thought to bear evidence of a familiarity with the scenes depicted which could only be attributed to Lady Charlotte. It was reviewed with much severity, and attributed to her ladyship by both the Edinburgh and Quarterly Reviews.
