English novelist and writer Frances Trollope.

Frances Trollope

(1779 - 1863)

The mother of the novelist Anthony, Trollope in 1828 visited the experimental community of social reformer Fanny Wright in Tennessee before settling with her family in Ohio for two years. After returning to England, she published a work of nonfiction recounting her trip, Domestic Manners of the Americans, to wide acclaim in 1832. Her antislavery novel of 1836, The Life and Adventures of Jonathan Jefferson Whitlaw, predates Uncle Tom’s Cabin by fifteen years.
