Fanny Parkes arrived in India with her husband, a civil servant in the East India Company, in 1822 and remained there until 1845, living first in Calcutta and then in Allahabad.

Her journal, widely acclaimed on its publication for its accuracy and wealth of detail, is based on a diary the author kept for her mother."
