Berry, Mary (1763 -1852)

Born at Kirkbridge, North Yorkshire, Mary Berry and her sister Agnes were intimate friends with Horace Walpole. In his letters Walpole spoke of both in terms of the strongest affection and endearment, in one instance addressing them as his "twin wives." Mary Berry's literary productions include the comedy, Fashionable Friends; England and France, a Comparative View of the Social Conditions in both Countries (1844), and an edition of the Works of Horace Walpole (1798), which she collected and edited.
