She was the daughter of Michael Browne, rector of St. Giles's Church and minor canon of Norwich Cathedral, where she was born on 1 Oct. 1790. She married in early life a Captain Phelan of the 60th regiment, and spent two years with him while he served with his regiment in Nova Scotia. They then returned to Ireland, where Phelan owned a small estate near Kilkenny. The marriage was not a happy one, and they separated about 1824. Mrs Phelan subsequently resided with her brother, Captain John Browne,at Clifton, where she made the acquaintance of Hannah More. She later move d to Sandhurst, and then to London. In 1837 Captain Phelan died in Dublin, and in 1841 his widow married Lewis Hippolytus Joseph Tonna. She died at Ramsgate on 12 July 1846, and was buried there. While in Ireland Mrs. Tonna began to write, as "Charlotte Elizabeth," tracts for various religious societies. She was very hostile to the Catholic Church, and some of her publications are said to have been placed on the Index Expurgatorius. In 1837 she published an abridgment of Foxe's Book of Martyrs. She edited The ProtestantAnnual, 1840, and The Christian Lady's Magazine from 1836, and The Protest ant Magazine from 1841 until her death. She also wrote poems, two of which,The Maiden City and No Surrender, were written specially for the Orange ca use.” - wikipedia. Light wear, corners bumped, else a very good, bright copy. 100.00
