Biography

Charlotte Moberly was born in Winchester in 1846. In 1869, she undertook secretarial duties for her father who had been appointed as Bishop of Salisbury. She continued in this capacity, with the additional duties of nursing him when his health deteriorated, until he died in 1885. She was then appointed as the first Principal of St. Hugh's Hall where she served until her retirement in 1915.[1]

Moberly wrote several books, including a biography of her father, Dulce domum : George Moberly, D.C.L. Headmaster of Winchester College, 1835-1866, Bishop of Salisbury, 1869-1885 : his family and friends. She is best known, though, for An Adventure, which she published in 1911 with her friend Eleanor Frances Jourdain (1864-1924). This was based on a psychic, time-travelling experience (the so-called Moberly-Jourdain Incident[2]) the two ladies said they had when they visited the Petit Trianon, Versailles palace, on 10 Aug 1901, which happened to be the anniversary of the sacking of the Tuileries in 1792. They claimed to have seen Queen Marie Antoinette painting in the garden. It is said that this book influenced Frodo’s dreams in The Lord of the Rings.[3]

Charlotte Moberly died in Oxford in 1936.[4]
