Emilia Tennyson


Emilia Tennyson

Emilia Tennyson (1811-1887), known simply as Emily within her family, was a younger sister of Alfred, Lord Tennyson and the fiancée of Arthur Henry Hallam, for whom Tennyson's great poem, "In Memoriam A.H.H.", was written. Emilia met Hallam through her brother, but they were never to marry, as he died suddenly while traveling abroad in 1833. She later married Richard Jesse, and their eldest son was given the forenames Arthur Henry Hallam.

Emilia Tennyson is featured as a character in the story "Conjugal Angeel" by A S Byatt in the book "Angels and Insects."
