Short biography
Caroline Henrietta Sheridan, née Callander, was an aristocratic beauty who in 1805 married Thomas Sheridan, a son of the playwright-manager Richard Brinsley Sheridan. The couple had four sons and three daughters, who included the writers Mrs. Caroline Norton and Helen Selina Blackwood, Lady Dufferin. In 1813, she accompanied her husband to the Cape of Good Hope, where he later died while serving as a colonial officer. She received a small pension, and was given rooms at Hampton Court Palace by the Prince Regent. She became a popular novelist in the 1830s. After her children were grown up, Frances Kemble wrote of her in Records of a Girlhood: "Mrs. Sheridan, the mother of the Graces, [is] more beautiful than anybody but her daughters."
