TROLLOPE, Frances Milton, author, born in Heckfield, Hampshire, England, about 1780; died in Florence, Italy, 6 October, 1863. She was the daughter of Reverend William Milton, and in 1809 married Anthony Trollope, a barrister at law. The union proved unhappy, and in 1829 she came to this court-try and endeavored to establish herself in business in Cincinnati, Ohio. Failing in this enterprise, she returned to England in 1831, and published " Domestic Manners of the Americans," in which rude and ludicrous phases of American character and habits were depicted in a broad but witty caricature (2 vols., London, 1832). She subsequently led a career of great literary activity, travelled extensively on the continent, and became among the most voluminous of English female writers. Her first book was followed by a novel entitled "The Refugee in America "(1832), and "The Adventures of Jonathan Jefferson Whitlaw" (1836), both illustrative of the vulgar side of American manners and character. Her other writings include numerous novels, and " Belgium and Western Germany" (2 vols., London, 1834) ; "A Visit to Italy" (2 vols., 1842) ; and "Travels and Travellers" (1846).--Her son, THOMAS ADOLPHUS, is a voluminous author, and was for many years Italian correspondent of the New York "Tribune."---Another son, ANTHONY, (1815-1882), was connected with the British postal service in 1834-'67, and was sent by the govern-meat several times to this country to compare the English system with that in the United States. He is best known by his numerous novels. He also published a book of travels in this country, entitled "North America" (London, 1862), and his autobiography appeared soon after his death (1883).

In this powerful, historic work, Stan Klos unfolds the complex 15-year U.S.
Founding period revealing, for the first time, four distinctly different United
American Republics. This is history on a splendid scale -- a book about the not
quite unified American Colonies and States that would eventually form a fourth
republic, with only 11 states, the United States of America: We The
People. Click Here
