(1827–76), Anglican religious. The eldest of the Rossetti family, she was, in the opinion of her agnostic brother William (W. M.), ‘more warmly and spontaneously devotional than any person I have ever known’. Feeling herself free from domestic responsibilities on his marriage in 1874, she joined the sisterhood of All Saints', Margaret Street, London, but died shortly afterwards. In 1871 she published A Shadow of Dante.
