Adelaide Anne Procter


Poetess and philanthropist. She was the daughter of Bryan Waller Procter (“Barry Cornwall”), and a convert to Catholicism in 1851. Her verses are unambitious, but have the merit of originality and give evidence of much culture. Her book Legends and Lyrics, met with great success.
