Elizabeth Teft entry: Overview screen.
Presumably after 1723
ET's birth, at Rothwell
, has generally been dated 1723; but the baby given this name in this year died in 1724. Her parents must have used the same name again, as was not uncommon.
9 September 1741
ET composed "Orinthia's Request to the Gentlemen of Fortune", the poem with which she apparently first reached print.
ET published Orinthia's Miscellanies; or, A Compleat Collection of Poems
The date and place of ET's death are unknown: nothing is heard of her after the publication of her book.
