Standard Name: Mozley, Anne
Birth Name: Anne Mozley
, publishing from the late 1830s to the final decade of the century, remained always anonymous and worked mostly in marginal genres, with the result that she is little known and several of her books are not listed under her name in library catalogues. As an editor she produced poetry anthologies, and texts of the essays, sermons, and letters of a younger brother, as well as of the letters of Cardinal Newman

By her marriage HM
became the sister-in-law of Anne Mozley
