Susanna Haswell Rowson

a.k.a. Susanna (nee) Haswell Rowson

Author Code: ASHR

Born: (?) 1762 - Portsmouth, England

Died: Mar. 2, 1824 - Boston, Massachusetts, USA

The daughter of an English Royal Navy Lieutenant, Susanna was brought to Boston by her father in 1767. During the American Revolution, Haswell was arrested and subsequently returned to England and lived in poverty some time until Susanna published her first book, Victoria, in 1786. Later that same year, she married William Rowson. In 1790, she published Charlotte Temple, which became America's first best-seller. She returned to America in 1793 and began a short acting career. In 1796, she moved to Boston and both she and her husband performed at the Federal Street Theatre. In 1797, she founded a boarding school for girls and this would occupy a great deal of her time until her retirement in 1822. Nevertheless, she continued to write during this period and produced a number of novels, volumes of poetry and some non-fiction. Her works include The Inquisitor (1788), May, or the Test of Honour (1789), Mentoria (1791), Rebecca (1792), The Female Patriot (1795), The Standard of Liberty (1795), Reuben and Rachel (1798), Hearts of Oak (1811) and Sarah (1813).
