Georgiana Charlotte Leveson-Gower was the daughter of Granville Leveson-Gower, 1st Earl Granville, and sister of Granville George Leveson-Gower, 2nd Earl Granville, a prominent statesman.
She wrote several novels, some of which were very successful. They include Ellen Middleton (1844), Grantley Manor (1847), and Too Strange not to be True (1864). She also published two volumes of verse.
She converted to Roman Catholicism in 1846 and wrote The Life of St. Frances of Rome, and Others. She founded Saint Walburga's School, in Bournemouth, which survives, albeit on a new site, and a Blue Plaque to commemorate her Catholic activities can be found on the Sacred Heart church in Bournemouth.
