Roscoe, Mary Ann, daughter of William Roscoe, was born in 1795, married to Thomas Jevons, 1825, and died in 1845. She edited Poems for Youth, by a Family Circle, Lond., 1820, to which her brothers and sister contributed. From 1831 she also edited The Sacred Offering, an Annual of original and selected poetry (Liverpool, D. Marple & Co.). Her 7 hymns were published in her Sonnets and other Poems, chiefly Devotional, in 1845. Of her hymns three are still in common use:—
1. [Now] O let your mingling voices rise. Christmas.
2. Thou must go forth alone, my soul. Death Anticipated.
3. When human hopes and joys depart. In Trouble and Affliction.
Of these No. 3 was first published in her Poems for Youth, &c, 1820.
