Adelaide Anne Proctor, 1825–1864
[Mentioned in the Message to The Mother Church for 1900, p. 11]
In their day, the poems of Adelaide Proctor were as well known as Tennyson's. Her lyrics, published in 1858, went through nine editions in seven years.
The daughter of the writer Brayan W. Proctor, whose nom de plume was Barry Cornwall, Miss Proctor published her first poems when she was eighteen. As a tiny child, before she could write, she loved poetry so much that her mother copied the child's favorite verses into an album for her. She was a precocious child, easily learning several Euclid problems. Her remarkable memory helped her in mastering French, German, and Italian.
