Works By
Romantic-era writer Annabella Plumptre's career shadowed that of her probably better-known sister Anne; but after novels and translations she turned to domestic and children's literature instead of to travel and political writing.
Shortly before 5 August 1761 AP was born, probably at Cambridge, where her father was President of Queen's College and where she was baptised on this date. She was the fourth of ten children and the third daughter. Bibliographic Citation link.  scholarly note link.
