Lady Sydney Morgan (nee Owenson, 1781?-1859) was an Irish novelist who embarked on a long writing career after taking a position as governess at Bracklyn Castle, County Westmeath, an environment in which she blossomed. She is best known for The Wild Irish Girl, an epistolary novel which appeared in 1806 in which she champions her native country, lauding the noble traditions of its early history and extolling the beauty of Irish scenery, whilst providing the reader with a plethora of background information on matters cultural and political in the copious footnotes.
