Fifth edition. Ellis Cornelia Knight (1757–1837) was a writer and painter who socialized with many of the notable personalities of the late reign of George III: Horatio Nelson, Lord and Lady Hamilton, the Prince Regent, the Princess of Wales, and the Princess Charlotte. Miss Knight published 5 works in her lifetime: in 1790:'Dinarbas', a continuation of a work by Samuel Johnson; in 1792, 'Flaminius', a novel in letters about Rome; in 1805, 'A Description of Latium or La Campagna di Roma' with her own etchings; in 1812, 'Translations from the German in Prose and Verse;' and in 1833 'Sir Guy de Lusignan, a Romance'. At her death she left behind an incomplete autobiography and a journal.
