Her mother was a minor novelist and her father, the colonial treasurer at the Cape of Good Hope, also wrote verse. In 1827, she married George Chapple Norton which ended in separation depriving her of her three children. She wrote much for annuals and published four novels after 1835. In 1857, after the death of her first husband, she married William Stirling Maxwell.

Epigraph

Gayer insects fluttering by
Ne’er droop the wing o’er those that die;
And lovelier things have mercy shown
To every failing but their own;
And every woe a tear can claim,
Except an erring sister’s shame.
 
The Gaiour.
