Mary Barber entry: Overview screen.
Probably about 1685
The future MB was born.
17 May 1735
MB's Poems on Several Occasions
were entered to her name in the Stationers' Register
; the date of 1734 on title-pages in the first issue of the quarto edition for subscribers seems therefore to be inaccurate, the result of over-optimism.
The Gentleman's Magazine
printed MB's "To a Friend desiring an Account of [my] Health in Verse", which pulls no punches about her sufferings from gout.
By 14 June 1755
MB died in Dublin
: the Dublin Journal
reported her death on this date.
