Biography: Harriet Nunn was born around 1810 in Ireland, the second daughter of William Baker of Liscahill, Co. Tipperary. In 1842, she married barrister Lorenzo Nickson Nunn. Based on the censuses, the couple spilt time between Ireland and England. Nunn wrote three novels, none of which made much mark with readers. She died on 8 March 1890 in Hastings. Her husband died the following year. Note: the entry in Loeber lacks her dates.
