Jackson, Catherine Hannah Charlotte (Elliott)
1824 - 12/09/1891
Historian; wrote Old Paris, Its Court and Literary Works (1878) and other works; there is doubt regarding her birth year. Wellesley says 1824, and ODNB offers 1813/14. We can strike the 1813: she was born in July, died in December 1891, after that year’s birthday. She repeatedly gave 1824 as her birth year (RLF case 1897). In the absence of other evidence, we retain Wellesley’s dates. See Boase II: 29.
