Mary Ann Radcliffe entry: Overview screen.
18 June 1746
Mary Clayton, who later wrote as MAR, was baptised in St Nicholas' Church
, the elder of two daughters, and the sole survivor.
Probably after January 1792
MAR says she began work this year on the 'feminist' manifesto which became The Female Advocate
9 February 1810
MAR, after interruptions from sickness and weariness, pressed on with her Memoirs
Shortly before 6 August 1818
MAR died in Lochend Close, Canongate
, of a 'decline'. Since her son Joseph is known to have lived later in East Lochend's Close, it may be that she died in his house.
