Brodie-Innes, Francis Annesley (F)

Surname: Brodie-Innes (née Voysey)
Forename(s): Francis Annesley
b. 1853. d. 24 December 1942. Nationality: English.
Poet. Pseudonym: Francis Annesley. Née Voysey. Born in Hessle, Yorkshire. Married the lawyer John William Brodie-Innes in 1879. Chambers’s Journal ledger entries to poems by Francis Annesley list the poet as Miss Brodie Innes (poem published 10 March 1900; NLS Dep 341/371) and Mrs Brodie Innes (poems published 9 March 1901, 8 June 1901, 7 December 1901; NLS Dep 341/371), with the address given as 15 Royal Circle, Edinburgh. Presumably the “Miss” is in error (her daughter was born in 1885). John William Brodie-Innes also lived at this address in 1897; see Royal Blue Book: Fashionable Directory, and Parliamentary Guide, Kelly & Co. Limited, 1897, p. 632. He was a leading member of Edinburgh’s temple of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn; see (6 April 2020). Biographical information: WikiTree (10 December 2021). (AC)
