Elizabeth Davis Bancroft (1803 - 1886) was born in Plymouth,Massachusetts. She was the wife of the famous American historian and statesman George Bancroft (1800 - 1891). Bancroft is most famous for the letters she wrote to family members from England. Though these letters were not intended for publication, because of the exuberance and the clarity of Bancroft's depiction of Victorian social life in London, they were published as Letters from England (1846 - 1849).
