Mrs. Hemans's Father

S. C. Hall

Note 2 in the author's biography of Felicia Hemans.

A near relation of the family (a son of a niece of Mr. Browne), whom I chanced to meet not long ago told me that Mr. Browne was born in the city of Cork. His father was a member of a mercantile firm. The father of Mrs. Hemans -- George -- was sent over to arrange some affairs in Liverpool, and, "being handsome and very pre-possessing," won the heart of Miss Wagner, married her, and settled in Liverpool. He died in Canada. [363n]
