Elizabeth Bathory - Serial Killer

Elizabeth Bath, née Paddy, (1776–1844) is the author of a collection of sixty-six poems published by subscription in 1806 in Bristol. She was a member of the Society of Friends.



Elizabeth Bath (née Paddy) was born on 17 February 1776. She was the daughter of Edward Paddy and Mary (Rowling) of Falmouth, Cornwall.

On 7 November 1796 she married Henry Bath (24 January 1776 – 29 May 1844) a Quaker and metals merchant of Swansea, South Wales, also founder of Henry Bath & Son Ltd., an enterprise still in existence today. They lived at Rosehill House, in Mumbles, Swansea. Elizabeth's sister, Mary, became the wife of Edward Osler and thereby the grandmother of Sir William Osler, the world-renowned physician.

She died on 3 October 1844.


Elizabeth Bath's book is dedicated to a friend "whose sincerity is equaled only by the stability which has ever marked her character." The poems take a variety of forms — some are sonnets; some are longer poems — and they address religion, loss, friendship, sensibility, and other likely topics. The list of subscribers is substantial.
