The Hon. Frances Anne Vane Tempest was born January 17, 1800, in St. James’s Square, London.  Frances Anne was admired and respected for her successes as a political and a society hostess, her business acumen, and her position in society. She capably ran estates in England and Ireland, and was known for being strong minded.  Her background certainly prepared her to think for herself, to trust her own judgment, and to stand her ground.  Her parents were fascinating people in their own rights.
