Short biography
Entitled to honorific prefix Lady Cynthia as the daughter of Hugo Richard Charteris, 11th Earl of Wemyss, and his wife Mary Constance Wyndham. Noted for her diaries of World War I. From The Independent, 31 August 2008: Lady Cynthia Asquith was the daughter-in-law of the Prime Minister H.H. Asquith, and belonged to the literary aristocracy. As well as writing novels and ghost stories, she was an important anthologist and the editor of a series of popular collections. A friend to both D.H. Lawrence and L.P. Hartley, she also spent two decades working for J.M. Barrie. She used her powerful literary connections to persuade an astonishing array of big names into her anthologies, many of which have never been bettered.
