Anne Beale (1816 – 19 September 1900) was a popular Welsh novelist and poet.

She was born in Somerset[1] but lived at Llandeilo in Carmarthenshire from 1841, until she moved to London, where she died at 68 Belsize Road, South Hampstead. As well as her girls' stories and a volume of poetry, she contributed Welsh interest articles to English magazines.


  • Traits and Stories of the Welsh Peasantry (1849)

  • The Queen O'the May (1881)
  • Gladys the Reaper (1881)
  • Old Gwen (1888)
  • Charlie is My Darling (1891)
  • Seven Years for Rachel

Gladys of Harlech (1858) and Country Landlords(1860) are both attributed to Anne Beale, but the title page of the original edition gives the author's name as "L.M.S", and the true author is believed to be L. M. Spooner.[2]
