Facts and Events
Frances Eleanor Trollope (née Ternan) (August 1835 – 14 August 1913) was an English novelist.
She was born aboard a paddle steamer in Delaware Bay, the eldest of three surviving daughters of the actors Thomas Lawless Ternan and Frances Eleanor Ternan (née Jarman); her younger sister Ellen Ternan achieved some notoriety as the mistress of Charles Dickens. Frances Ternan married into the novel-writing Trollope family, being the second wife of Thomas Adolphus Trollope and therefore the sister-in-law of Anthony Trollope and daughter-in-law of Frances Milton Trollope, whose biography she authored.
She and her husband lived in Italy from their marriage in 1866 until 1890, when they returned to England. Thomas died in 1892. Frances died 14 August 1913 at Southsea, where she had been living with her sister Ellen.
