CORNELIA                   

                         The name Cornelia was the first anagram I proposed that seemed to be a reasonable substitute for Caroline. For nearly
                         200 years, it has been supposed that the origin of Leach’s anagrams was a ‘Caroline’ – but there is no reason that it could
                         not have been a ‘Cornelia’ instead.  Miss Ellis Cornelia Knight was a companion to the royal family from 1805 to 1814
                         and a published author. As such, her position would at least have been semi-public and possibly known to Leach.
 
                         Miss Cornelia Knight published five works in her lifetime: Dinarbas; Flaminius;, A Description of Latium or La Campagna di Roma;
                         Translations from the German in Prose and Verse; and Sir Guy de Lusigan, a Romance. 
Her autobiography was published from her
                         manuscript and journals after her death.

                         In searching for direct links between the Elford Leach and Cornelia Knight, I only discovered a small coincidence, but one that
                         cemented my choice of Miss Knight as my example of a ‘Cornelia.’  In the House of Common Papers, Volume 6, published by
                         Parliament, both Ellis Cornelia Knight and William Elford Leach appear on page 5 under the Civil List of Pensions.
