The date of CMC's birth (presumably somewhere in Ireland
) is unknown, but is probably (and perhaps well) before 1720.
CMC, as 'a Gentlewoman', published at London
, "printed for the author," a romance entitled The Fair Moralist; or, love and virtue. . . . To which is added, several occasional poems
In a second London edition of The Fair Moralist
with some poems newly appended, CMC added her name to the title-page.
By December 1768
CMC published, as 'Prudentia Christiania', her undated A Letter from a Lady to the Bishop of London
. The bishop at this date was Richard Terrick.
The date of CMC's death is not known: it may have been any time after her final known publication in 1768.
