Untitled[edit]

There is a story (possibly fictional) that Ms. Trollope caused such offense in the US that her last name was the inspiration for the word 'trollop', which is an archaic term for prostitute in the American vernacular of English.

Can anyone confirm this?

Trollop (no 'e') seems to be an old word, derived from trull, a medieval term for prostitute. Bastie 04:03, 19 December 2006 (UTC)

Did she ever live at Nashoba?[edit]

According to the Wik/en Hygieia article and the Wik/de FT articles, FT lived at Hygieia. The Wik/en Nashoba article does not say that she LIVED at Nashoba. Kdammers (talk) 10:16, 10 May 2008 (UTC)

Frances Eleanor Trollope makes reference to Nashoba in her book "Frances Trollope - Her Life and Literary Work From George III to Victoria", Vol. One on page 104/105. Frances (Fanny) had proposed spending some months there, but Frances Eleanor found no hint of Fanny spending a prolonged time there. JCTilley (talk) 13:25, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

Etiquette was born in France, matured in America, and died in England.[edit]

"She was thought to reflect the disparaging views of American society allegedly commonplace at that time among English people of the higher social classes."

That's too bad because Americans still like the British.

I guess that just goes to show each other's character. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.251.95.98 (talk) 20:35, 18 September 2011 (UTC)
