Meet the Author

Elizabeth Grant (1797-1885) was born in Edinburgh's fashionable New Town. Most of her childhood was spent in London and on the family estate, Rothiemurchus, on Speyside. She was educated by governesses and in the social graces by various tutors, finally entering Edinburgh society at the end of the Napoleonic wars. In 1827 the family left Scotland for India when her father was appointed to a judgeship in Bombay. It was here that she met and married Colonel Henry Smith, 17 years her senior. They left for Ireland the following year to live at Baltiboys, her husband's newly inherited estate near Dublin.
