Rowlands, Effie Adelaide; birth name Effie Adelaide Maria Henderson; aka Mrs Raleigh, E. Maria Albanesi and Madame Albanesi. (b. circa 1859, Adelaide, SA; d 1936). 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”. [work out of copyright]
