About Author

Agnes Giberne

The British author Agnes Giberne lived from November 19, 1845, to August 20, 1939. She wrote a lot of novels and science papers. Her stories were typical of Victorian Christian stories for kids that had religious or moral themes. For kids, she wrote science books, and she also wrote a few historical stories and a well-known biography. Giberne was born in Belgaum, Karnataka, India. Her parents were Captain Charles Giberne (16 June 1808 – 21 December 1902) of the Bengal Native Infantry and Lydia Mary Wilson (c. 1816 – 20 May 1890). The Huguenots in her family tree came from Languedoc in France. The "de Gibernes" lived in Chateau de Gibertain. Charles Giberne came from a big family. Besides his brother, he had eight sisters. It was also where three of his brothers served. The wedding took place at St. Mary the Virgin, Walthamstow, on December 11, 1838, and Giberne was born. There is some doubt about how many brothers Giberne had. The India Family History and Families in British India Society records at the British Library show. By the 1851 census, Lydia Mary was living with the Rector of Eyam in Derbyshire and his family at Beach in Weston-super-Mare with her four children who were still alive.
