Kirkham, Elizabeth aka Mrs Tom Kirkham, Ashbourne; Kyra Keith; according to AustLit database: born Elizabeth Pennington Bayly (1853-1901). [death announcement above Aug 8 issue: 1901]:

The Late Mrs. Tom Kirkham. – It is with the deepest regret that we have to record the untimely death of Mrs. Kirkham, wife of Mr. Tom Kirkham, of Ashbourne, the highly esteemed lady dying at Miss Baker’s private hospital, North Adelaide, on Tuesday last from peritonitis, following on a severe internal operation she had just undergone. Mrs. Kirkham had been in somewhat delicate health for some four or five years, but by no means in feeble condition, and her bright life promised to be a long, as it had already been a useful one, but at the early age of 48 years she has passed away and “solved the great problem, the mystery of death,” leaving a husband and seven children sorrowing. Mrs. Kirkham was a highly cultured lady, with great intellectual gifts, an advanced student, a deep reader, and a clever writer of poetry and prose, besides being that most prized of all things, a lovable and womanly woman, ever to the fore in kindly actions, and ever ready to sacrifice herself for the help of others, and her death will cause a big blank in the district in which she had lived for over a quarter of a century. But if in her own social circle she will be missed, there are hundreds to whom her personality was unknown who will learn of her death with regret, her writings under the nom de plume of “Kyra Keith” having won her a popularity which is wide-spread through the South, her stories, “Divided Lives,” “Pains and Penalties,” and the many essays and articles published in this paper having made her literary name a household word. At the present time we are publishing her latest story, “Kips” in our columns, and next week we print an article from her pen which she completed just prior to her leaving for Adelaide – unhappily the last she ever wrote. Hundreds of our readers will, we know full well, join us in the regret that so clever and pleasing a writer has been “called away,” and very many of them will also join us in our deep sympathy with the bereaved family who are suffering so irreparable a loss. The funeral of the deceased lady takes place at two o’clock this afternoon at Ashbourne.” The Southern Argus, 8 Aug 1901.

Rowlands, Effie Adelaide, nee Henderson; aka E. Maria Albanesi and Madame Albanesi. Identified as Australian and female in ANFD. The AustLit biography states that Rowlands was born in Australia (perhaps in 1859), and settled in England at an early age. It suggests that some of her many novels have “Australian content” (e.g. The Hand of Fate, 1914), but as there are so few of her novels in Australian libraries this aspect of her work has not yet been determined. Several of her novels were nevertheless serialised in Australian newspapers. Her obituary (West Australian, 17 Oct 1936) describes her as an “English novelist”.
