Fanny Burney *

a.k.a. Frances, Madame d'Arblay

Author Code: EFBY

Born: Jun. 13,1752 - King's Lynn, Norfolk, England

Died: Jan. 6, 1840 - London, England

Daughter of the musician Charles Burney, Fanny observed and recorded the society that frequented the London Burney house, which included some of the most notable people of the period including Samuel Johnson, David Garrick, Edmund Burke, Richard Sheridan and many others. These observations led to her first novel, Evelina, or The History of a Young Lady's Entrance Into the World, which was published anonymously in 1778. One of the most popular books of its time, Evelina was followed in 1782 by the 5-volume Cecilia, or Memoirs of an Heiress, which was equally successful. From 1785 to 1791, Fanny worked as second keeper of the robes at the court of Queen Charlotte and King George III. Fanny married Alexandre d'Arblay in 1793. Her next novel, Camilia: or A Picture of Youth, followed in 1796, which was commercialy successful and gave the d'Arblays the financial independence to build a house in Surrey, where they moved in 1797. During a visit to France in 1802, the family was forced to stay when the Napoleonic War broke out and they were unable to return to England until 1815. Fanny's husband died in 1818. In 1832, she published her father's Memoirs. She also wrote a number of minor plays.
