Michael in Aberystwyth has unearthed not only a delightful vignette about “touring” the home of the Ladies of Llangollen, but also a very interesting writer.
Anne Plumptre published in 1817 her Narrative of a Residence in Ireland, 1814-15; the Dublin City Public Library has a webpage dedicated to the writer, for there is a three-volume set in the Special Collections of the Dublin & Local Studies Collection. Her portrait (left) served as frontispiece.
Anne authored many works, though the most intriguing to me (after this Ireland episode, which I must read) is her earlier Narrative of a Three Years Residence in France, 1802-05. Anne was a vociferous supporter of Napoleon!
Books.Google, that notorious collector of missing volumes, has Plumptre’s France, vol I; vol II; vol III.
You will find Anne’s visit to Plas Newydd in the Timeline for 1814.
