In the churchyard of Bournemouth—which, for picturesqueness of position, and the taste with which it is adorned, may claim competition with more renowned cemeteries—are deposited the earthly remains of Mary Shelley, wife of Percy Bysshe Shelley, and daughter of William Godwin and Mary Wolstonecraft. Thus, in the nearest and dearest ties of life, linked with names of transcendent genius and high renown.
