|Full Name||Emily Elizabeth Shaw Beavan|
Emily Beavan has sometimes been credited as the author of Lil Grey: or, Arthur Chester's Courtship (1878), and thus of other titles listed in the book's frontmatter ("Alicia", "Olga Norvonne," and "Readings in Rhyme"); however, it would seem that the text's author was in fact another "Mrs. E. Beavan"--a woman who published alternately as Mrs. Ebenezer Beavan and as Harriet Ann Glazebrook. For more biographical detail, see her entry in The Dictionary of Canadian Biography online.
|Birthplace||Belfast, Northern Ireland|
