BURNETT, Frances Hodgson, novelist, born in Manchester, England, 24 November, 1849. She was educated in her native City, where she became familiar with the Lancashire dialect and character. About the close of the American civil war her parents were impelled by pecuniary misfortune to emigrate to the United States. They settled in 1865 at Knoxville, Tennessee, and subsequently removed to Newmarket. She there began to write short stories, the first of which appeared in a magazine in 1867. In 1872 Miss Hodgson contributed to "Scribner's Monthly" a dialect story entitled "Surly Tim's Trouble," republished in book-form with other tales in 1877. In 1873 she married Dr. Luan 3i. Burnett, of Knoxville, and, after returning from a visit to Europe in 1875, resided in Washington, District of Columbia Her story of "That Lass o' Lowrie's," printed in "Scribner's Magazine," obtained great popularity, and was immediately issued in a separate volume (New York, 1877). In 1878-'9 some of her earlier magazine stories were reprinted, viz., "Kathleen Mavourneen," "Lindsay's Luck," "Miss Crespigny," "Pretty Polly Pemberton," and "Thee." They were originally contributed to a periodical in Philadelphia, and were published in book-form without her permission by a house in that City, a proceeding that led to a public controversy. Her second novel, "Haworth's," was published as a serial in two magazines, and was printed in a volume in 1879. In 1879 an authorized edition of her earlier love-tales was issued in New York. In 1880 appeared a new novelette entitled "Louisiana." Her third novel, "A Fair Barbarian," was published as a serial in 1881, and in a volume the year following; and a fourth, entitled "Through One Administration," appeared in book-form in 1883. In 1886 a juvenile tale, entitled '" Little Lord Fauntleroy," was printed as a serial in the "St. Nicholas " magazine. "That Lass o' Lowrie's," depicting life at the Lancashire mines, went through many editions in England, and has been repeatedly dramatized.
