9 October 1772
Mary Blachford (later MT) was born in Dublin
, the second of two children in her family.
Christmas Eve 1804
MT wrote to her friend Joseph Cooper Walker
that she had had a narrow escape: she had almost published Psyche
, together with "a volume of smaller poems" (which must have been "Verses Transcribed for H. T."), but had at the last moment decided not to.
Probably December 1809
MT wrote her final poem, "On receiving a branch of mezereon. Which flowered at Woodstock
. December 1809."
