Mary Cholmondeley

Author Code: EMCH

Born: Jun. 8, 1859 - Hodnet, Shropshire, England

Died: Jul. 15, 1925 - London, England

The eldest daughter of Hugh Cholmondeley, the rector of St. Luke's Church in Hodnet, Mary spent much of her first thirty years looking after her sick mother. During this time she began to write stories and was eventually introduced to the author Rhoda Broughton, who encouraged her work. Broughton introduced Mary to the London publisher George Bentley and her first book, Her Evil Genius, was published in 1885. Her first success came the following year with the novel The Danvers Jewels, which sold very well. Her family moved to Candover in 1896 and subsequently to London. In 1899, she published Red Pottage, a satirical novel that reached the best-seller list for two consecutive years. Elizabeth Von Arnim used the pseudonym of Alice Cholmondeley, it is said, out of respect for Mary's works. Her other works include Sir Charles Danvers (1889), Let Loose (1890), Diana Tempest (1893), Devotee (1897), Prisoners (1906), The Lowest Rung (1908), Moth and Rust (1912), After All (1913), Notwithstanding (1913) and her autobiography Under One Roof (1917).
