(1824-1913) UK linguist and translator, married from 1853 until his death to W H G Kingston, who published her translations of Jules Verne and Johann Wyss under his own name without acknowledgement; for some later work she signed herself Agnes D Kingston. These translations, which have been properly faulted for expurgations and inaccuracies, were typical of Victorian workmanship in this field; she was by no means the worst offender. [JC]
