Marianne Chambers entry: Overview screen.
MC, old enough to issue her first book in 1799, was still young enough six years later to mention her youth and inexperience in publishing her next. She was probably born in the 1770s, and certainly by about 1773.
MC published by subscription through Dilly
her only novel, He Deceives Himself. A Domestic Tale
, dedicated to her godfather, Thomas Powell
2 March 1811
MC's second five-act play, Ourselves, A Comedy
, opened at the Lyceum
with actors from the Theatre Royal
Nothing more is known of MC after the year 1811, when her last play was twice staged and also published. She may have died at any time after this.
