Biography: Annette Marie Maillard was born around 1812 in Southampton, the youngest daughter of Col. Radcliffe of Everton. In 1832, she married the American newspaper proprietor Nicholas Doran Proby Maillard (who later changed his name to Stubber) in London. Presumably, she lived by her pen producing penny fiction and contributing to various periodicals. She may have separated from her husband since she lived alone in the 1871 census. By 1881, she was a widow living in Surrey. She died on 8 March 1890 in Hammersmith.
