Lady Georgiana Fullerton (1812–1885)

Fullerton, Georgiana, Lady. An English novelist, daughter of the first Earl Granville and wife of Alexander Fullerton; born at Tixall Hall, Staffordshire, Sept. 23, 1812; died at Bournemouth, Jan. 19, 1885. Her first novel, ‘Ellen Middleton’ (1844), was followed by ‘Grantley Manor’ (1847). Her later stories after her conversion to the Catholic faith in 1846 are in a mild way “stories with a purpose,” the purpose being to develop the influence of religious belief on life and character; among them are: ‘Lady Bird’ (1852); ‘Too Strange Not to Be True’ (1864); ‘Mrs. Gerald’s Niece’ (1871); ‘A Will and a Way’ (1881). She wrote also ‘The Gold-Digger, and Other Verses’ (1872).
