Mrs George Linnaeus Banks, nee Isabella Varley, was born in her parent’s shop on Oldham Street, in the centre of Manchester, on the 25th March 1821. Her father, James Varley, was a pharmacist and along with his wife, Amelia, took an active part in politics in the period before Manchester had any parliamentary representation. He subsequently served as a town councillor, alderman and magistrate. Isabella was brought up on tales of the town’s struggles around the fireside of an evening, and her relatives had first-hand knowledge of the infamous Peterloo Massacre which had taken place within half a mile of her home, less than two years before her birth. Such tales fuelled her interest in Manchester’s history and her work as a writer. She published her first set of poems in 1844 under the title of “Ivy Leaves,” although an early poem, “A Dying Girl to Her Mother,” had been published when she was sixteen years of age by the Manchester Guardian. She authored a number of books, including “Bond Slaves – A Story of Struggle,” dealing with the Luddite movement, although “The Manchester Man,” is her best known novel. Malc Cowle, Manchester 2012
