CAULK1NS, Frances Mainwaring, author, born in New London, Connecticut, in 1796; died there, 3 February, 1869. She received the best education the country afforded, and her tastes lad her to improve every opportunity for the cultivation of her intellectual faculties. She gave especial attention to historical research, and was considered the best authority regarding the local traditions and relics of New London and Norwich and their vicinity, a region rich in colonial tradition and in mementos of the Indian tribes. She was for some time editor of the "Christian Almanac," and of other publications of the American tract society. She wrote tracts for the society, and "A History of Norwich, Connecticut" (Norwich, 1845), and "A History of New London, Connecticut",(New London, 1852).
