Anne Houlditch Shepherd

Short Name: Anne Houlditch Shepherd
Full Name: Shepherd, Anne Houlditch, 1809-1857
Birth Year: 1809
Death Year: 1857

Shepherd, Anne, née Houlditch, daughter of the Rev. E. H. Houlditch, sometime Rector of Speen, Berkshire, was born at Cowes, Isle of Wight, Sept. 11, 1809; married to Mr. S. Saville Shepherd in 1843; and died at Blackheath, Kent, Jan. 7, 1857. Her Hymns adapted to the Comprehension of Young Minds were published (3rd ed. 1847 5th ed. 1855), and contained 64 hymns. Of these the following have come into common use:—
1. Around the throne of God in heaven.
2. Glory to Jesus, glory. Praise.
3. Here's a message of love. Invitation.
4. I have read of the Saviour's love. The Love of Christ.
5. See where the gentle Jesus reigns. Jesus, the Children's Friend.
Of these hymns the first has by far the widest acceptance, and is found in a large number of children's hymn-books. Her religious novels, Ellen Seymour, 1848; and Reality, 1852, attracted some attention.
