Works

Florence Marryat was an astonishingly prolific writer, and there is no definitive bibliography of her work. Estimates vary, but it is thought that she wrote 68 novels. This was in addition to a number of plays, short stories, and works of non-fiction.

The list below covers her major works. The year stated is when the title was first published.

Please do let me know if you have any additions or corrections.  There are a number of other Florence Marryat titles included in various catalogues, but most seem to be different editions of those works listed below. Occasionally, novels by Marryat’s sisters are mistakenly attributed to her.

I am indebted to Richard Beaton for correcting a number of errors.
