Biographical history

Born on 2 February 1745 at Stapleton, Gloucestershire, Hannah More was a moral and religious writer. She was educated at home and then at a school her sisters had established in Bristol. In 1788 she published anonymously the first of her more serious reflections, Thoughts and Importance of the Manners of the Great to General Society. A series of writings followed which were among the most widely read books of the day. Her most popular work, Cœlebs in Search of a Wife was published in December 1809. Her works have been published in collected editions several times. She died on 7 September 1833 in Clifton.
