Birth Name: Julia Maria Byron
Used Form: Julia Maria Heath
Pseudonym: Miss Byron
Pseudonym: Medora Gordon Byron
Pseudonym: A Modern Antique
Pseudonym: Sibella Singleton
Miss Byron, or Medora Gordon Byron, or Julia Maria Byron, whose identity is still a mystery, published either five or eight early-nineteenth-century novels with the Minerva Press, depending on whether or not they include those issued as by A Modern Antique.

The later play and poem ascribed to someone of this name cannot be by the same person.
