The 1859 second edition of the guidebook The Beauties of Lyme Regis, by Henry Rowland Brown (1837-1921) of Lyme Regis, was dedicated to ‘Mrs Moore’. She is identified here as Alicia Anne Moore née Radford (bap. 1790-1873), Sheffield-born author and novelist, who was descended from the Lymen (or Leman or Lemman) family of Lyme Regis. She may have been a friend of George Roberts (bap. 1804-60), Lyme historian and mayor. Her peripatetic life with her second husband Robert Moore, spent partly overseas and in the Channel Islands (with good links to Lyme Regis), apparently arose from a disastrous first marriage and a technically bigamous second marriage.
