Author and mother of the famous novelist Anthony Trollope, travelled to rescue the family fortunes. Her husband succumbed to various speculative schemes, each more disastrous than the last. From 1827–1830 she was in America where she tried to open an arcade in Cincinatti, which failed. She visited a friend's project to assist black slaves near Memphis, Tennessee. This, too, collapsed but left Fanny with a deep hatred of slavery.
