From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Caroline Anne Southey (1786 – 1854), was an English poet and second wife of Robert Southey.

Born Caroline Anne Bowles, she was the daughter of a navy captain. She submitted a poem, "Ellen Fitzarthur", to Robert Southey which led to a friendship. They proposed a joint poem on Robin Hood, but this was not carried out. She did, however, eventually become the poet's second wife. She wrote various other works, including Chapters on Churchyards and Tales of the Factories.
