Hamilton, Elizabeth (17581816)

Hamilton, Elizabeth, novelist and essayist, born, of Scottish parentage, in Belfast; is remembered for her early advocacy of the higher education of women and for her faithful pictures of lowly Scottish life; “Letters of a Hindoo Rajah” and “Modern Philosophers” were clever skits on the prevailing scepticism and republicanism of the time; “The Cottagers of Glenburnie” is her best novel (17581816).
