Seward Anna

Seward, ANNA, (1747-1809), "the Swan of Lichfield," was the daughter of the rector of Eyam, in Derbyshire, who became a Canon of Lichfield when she was seven years old. Louisa (a metrical romance), the Life of Dr. Darwin, and her other works have long been forgotten, but she is remembered as the friend of Johnson and Sir Walter Scott.
