Elizabeth Smith (née Elizabeth Grant of Rothiemurchus; 7 May 1797 – 16 November 1885) was a Scottish diarist and lady of the manor of Baltyboys House. Over the course of her life, she lived in Scotland, England, India, Ireland, and France. Grant was born in Edinburgh in 1797. Her father was John Peter Grant and Member of Parliament. Her brother, Sir John Peter Grant, was the father of Jane Maria Strachey

These recollections of Elizabeth Grant of Rothiemurchus have been popular since first published in 1898. The recent discovery of the original manuscript has now made it possible to publish the complete text in one volume. Elizabeth Grant describes her earliest years in Edinburgh and London, where her father, Sir John Peter Grant, pursued his legal and political ambitions. Holidays were spent amongst the leisured members of her class in spas and resorts, and at Oxford where her uncle was Master of University College. She describes the trauma of a broken engagement and her agonies, echoing the problems suffered by her father, as his legal and political ambitions collapsed, with the direst of consequences for the family. An Indian judgeship provides an unexpected avenue of escape from Sir John Peter's creditors. Her memoirs end with the 33-year-old Elizabeth finding her own future happiness in marriage to an Irish landowner - the subject of the sequel, "The Highland Lady in Ireland".

My interest in the history of Scotland brought me to this book. It's both an interesting peek into Scottish history, but also into the social customs, beliefs, and expectations of the late 18th and early nineteenth centuries.

One of my all time favourite books. The lady in question is a bright self-possessed bouyant person, who sweeps you along the crest of the wave. It's like reading the real life version of one of Jane Austen's brilliant women. And all the social detail is there. There's a passage where she and he sisters buy a copy of Mozart's Don Giovanni, when it first comes out and then practice it in piano duet form to play to their father as a surprise. Herc observations of the people and events around her are very preceptive. She's a dire-hard tory, which might put some off. When the story goes to India, we are presented with a real-life true version of what life was like for the British rulers there. Continually fascinating.
Buy several copies as you'll want to give them away.

Elizabeth Grant of Rothiemurchus' biographical volumes offer a very personal look into the past of Scotland (in the first book). Her account of her family's lives and what Scotland was like in the early 19th century would be fascinating to anyone interested in that country or interested in the lives of women of that era. In some ways she seems very contemporary and in other ways she seems very far removed from life today. But her memoirs offer a unique view of how life was lived that long ago and in a place so remote from the mainstream. I found the first book totally enthralling and look forward to reading the other volumes of her later life, after she married an Anglo-Irish landowner and moved to Ireland, and her later travels.
