Biography: Georgiana M. Stisted was born in 1847, the daughter of General Sir Henry William Stisted (1817–1875) who served in India and was the lieutenant-governor of Ontario. Her mother, Maria Burton, was the sister of the explorer Sir Richard Burton (1821–1890). Her only novel is A Fireside King (1880) about a widowed Indian chaplain and his feckless daughters. In response to her aunt's memoir of Burton, Stisted wrote The True Life of Capt. Sir Richard E. Burton (1896). She never married and died after a long illness in 1903.
