Short biography
Anna Weamys, also known as Anne Weamys, was the author of A Continuation of Sir Philip Sydney's Arcadia (1651), one of three printed sequels to Sidney's long prose work The Countess of Pembroke's Arcadia (c. 1580), and the only one written by a woman. Her name appears on the title page only as "A Young Gentlewoman, Mistress A.W.," and little is known about her life. She appears to have been well educated, born in about 1630, possibly the daughter of Ludowick Weames, a clergyman from Essex. The date of her death is unknown. A continuation of Sir Philip Sydney's Arcadia follows a model begun by Lady Mary Wroth with her imitative Countesse of Mountgomeries Urania in 1621. Patrick Cullen, who edited a 1994 modern edition of her work, situates Anna in the context of a network of English Royalist sympathizers, including Henry Pierrepont, 1st Marquess of Dorchester, and his daughters Lady Anne and Lady Grace Pierrepont, James Howell, printer William Bentley, bookseller Thomas Heath, and possibly poet Frances Altham Vaughan.
