Short biography
Anne Southwell, née Harris, married Thomas Southwell in 1594. He was knighted in 1603, making her Lady Southwell, and they moved to County Cork, Ireland to manage English plantations there. They had two daughters and lived at Poulnelong Castle, near Kinsale, for many years. She wrote poetry and kept up a correspondence with a wide circle of friends and acquaintances. Not long after her first husband died in 1626, she remarried to Captain Henry Sibthorpe, an English army officer serving in Munster. They moved back to England, settling in Acton, Cheshire. Her poems were preserved in manuscript form in her commonplace book, known as the Southwell-Sibthorpe Commonplace Book, now in the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC, although some were published in 1614-1615
