Mrs. Mary Pilkington (1766-1839)

Mary Pilkington (née Mary Susanna Hopkins) (1761–1839) was an English novelist and poet.

She was born in Cambridge, England. When her father died, she was aged fifteen, and went to live with her grandfather. The man who had taken over her father's medical practice became Mary's husband in 1786. While he was away working as a naval surgeon, she took work as a governess. Many of her novels (of which she is known to have produced over forty in the years up to 1825) were written for children.
