Eliza Ware Farrar
She was the daughter of Benjamin Rotch of New Bedford, Massachusetts. The Quaker family had gone to France in the interest of the whaling business. During the Reign of Terror, the family left for England, where she was educated. When her father went broke in 1819, she was sent to live in New Bedford, where she was disowned by the Quaker meeting for her liberalism. She became a Unitarian.
