(1848–1923) married (1869) James Panton. Daughter of the painter W. P. Frith (1819–1909) and sister of Walter Frith, she was born in London and worked from 1882 as a journalist on domestic subjects, and author of advice books such as Homes of Taste: Economical Hints (1890), Within Four Walls: A Handbook for Invalids (1893), and Suburban Residences and How To Circumvent Them (1896). Her autobiography Leaves from a Life (1908) ran to five editions in its first year. Her other works were equally various, and include novels such as A Cannibal Crusader: An Allegory for the Times (1908), in which the pretences of respectable society are exposed by the arrival in its midst of a man born and raised on a remote island, and Leaves from a Garden (1910). Mrs Panton died at home in Taviton Street, London.
