Mrs Alicia Moore, dedicatee of Henry Rowland Brown’s 1859 guidebook Beauties of Lyme Regis

2015

Abstract

The 1859 second edition of the guidebook The Beauties of Lyme Regis, by Henry Rowland Brown (1837-1921) of Lyme Regis, was dedicated to ‘Mrs Moore’. She is identified here as Alicia Anne Moore née Radford (bap. 1790-1873), Sheffield-born author and novelist, who was descended from the Lymen (or Leman or Lemman) family of Lyme Regis. She may have been a friend of George Roberts (bap. 1804-60), Lyme historian and mayor. Her peripatetic life with her second husband Robert Moore, spent partly overseas and in the Channel Islands (with good links to Lyme Regis), apparently arose from a disastrous first marriage and a technically bigamous second marriage.
