Short biography
Caroline Lucy Scott, née Douglas, was a daughter of Archibald James Edward Douglas, 1st Baron Douglas and his second wife Frances, sister of Henry Scott, 3rd Duke of Buccleuch. In 1810, she married Admiral Sir George Scott, making her Lady Scott. Her first novel, A Marriage in High Life (1828), was published anonymously and edited by the novelist Lady Charlotte Campbell Bury, a relative. Two other novels followed, Trevelyan (1837) and The Old Grey Church (1856). As opposed to her novels, her religious or "improving" works were published with her name on the title page. They included Exposition of the Types and Antitypes of the Old and New Testament (1856), Incentives to Bible Study; Scripture Acrostics; a Sabbath Pastime for Young People (1860), and Acrostics, Historical, Geographical, and Biographical (1863).
