Oxford University Press

This chapter deals with Hannah More's last years, a period of bereavement, increasing frailty, and reactionary politics. In response to the post-1815 radical publications, she published Cheap Repository Tracts suited to the Present Times. Her Moral Sketches acquired mild notoriety because of its francophobic attack on British visitors to France. The Queen Caroline affair and Catholic emancipation reinforced her Toryism. She joined the Ultra Constitutional Association. She was suspicious of some of he new trends in Evangelicalism and came to distrust the millenarian preacher Edward Irving. Forced to leave Barley Wood because of the depredations of her servants, she died at Clifton in 1833.

Keywords:   Moral Sketches, francophobia, Queen Caroline, Toryism, Ultra Constitutional Association, Edward Irving, Clifton
