Short biography
Lady Mary was born in Edinburgh, the youngest daughter of Alexander Leslie, 5th Earl of Leven and Melville, and his second wife Elizabeth Montgomery. In 1762, Lady Mary married Dr. James Walker of Innerdovat, with whom she had several children. The couple separated, and some time after his death (or possibly before), she married George (or Robert) Hamilton of Jamaica. Lady Mary Hamilton and her second husband settled in France prior to the French Revolution. The French writer Charles Nodier became her literary factotum, and assisted her in writing and translating -- or possibly rewrote -- several of her novels. Lady Mary Hamilton's work included Letters from the Duchess de Crany (1773), The Life of Mrs. Justman (1782) and The Duc de Popoli (1810). Her best-known work was Munster Village (1778) a utopian, partly epistolary novel.
