Georgina Munro published five novels, some of the silver fork variety, in the 1840s and 1850s, as well as sixteen contributions to The People's Journal, including essays and short stories. Her magazine writing, including tales set in both Scotland and South Africa, uses characters from the lower classes, and is often designed to provide practical, didactic information about social and political issues such as emigration and marriage laws.
By 25 February 1820 GM was born shortly before this if, as seems plausible, she was the baby christened as Georgina Charlotte Munro at Gillingham in Kent on this day. Bibliographic Citation link.
By 29 January 1842 GM anonymously published her first silver fork novel, which is also a historical fiction: De Montfort; or, The Old English Nobleman. Bibliographic Citation link.
1853 GM published her last book, The Little Emigrant's Birthday; and, The Children of the Alps as the first in Addey's Little Story Books series.. Bibliographic Citation link.
GM's death date is unknown, but it probably took place some time after her final publication of 1853.
