 Chapter 9. The Eighties and Their Kin. Section 2. Francis Marion Crawford. Van Doren, Carl. 1921. The American Novel
Francis Marion Crawford, descendant of the Revolutionary general and son of the sculptor, Thomas Crawford, was born at Bagni di Lucca, Tuscany, in 1854.
As to his ideas, Crawford seems to have had few that were unusual, and he disliked the employment of unusual ideas in fiction, about the aims and uses of which he is very explicit in The Novel: What It Is (1893).
Thus far Crawford was carried by his cosmopolitan training and ideals: he believed that human beings are the same everywhere and can be made intelligible if reported lucidly and discreetly.

 Marion Crawford - The Royal Forums
Sara, Marion Crawford was the governess hired by Elizabeth Duchess of York to look after and teach Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret in the early 1930s, and she stayed until Princess Elizabeth was married, so she was with the family during the abdication, the second world war, and Princess Elizabeth's courtship with Prince Philip.
Marion Crawford was seen to have betrayed the trust placed in her by the King and Queen.
Marion Crawford had devoted years to the princesses and had put off her own marriage until her 40s because it was never quite convenient for the royals that she should leave.

His father, Thomas Crawford, was a distinguished sculptor; his mother, Louisa Ward, was a sister of Mrs.
Crawford his true field, the description of Italian life and character with its many cosmopolitan, and especially its American and English, affiliations.
While Marion Crawford in his public life always professed himself a Catholic, he can scarcely be called a Catholic novelist, and his treatment of Catholic subjects in several of his works does not recommend itself to his coreligionists.

It may perhaps be said also that both parties became aware of their common enemy, the social democrat, soon after the disappearance of the popular King whose great individual influence was of more value to the cause of a united monarchy than all the political clubs and organisations in Italy put together.
Crawford hones down his style to a greater concision than he usually mustered, and his eye on the changing social conditions of Italy in the 19th century remained as acute as in the first book in the series.
Crawford was immune to facile socialisms or de rigueur critiques of middle-class culture.

 The Literary Gothic | F. Marion Crawford
Born and raised largely in Italy, where he spent most of his adult life, Crawford was the son of the American sculptor Thomas Crawford (quite popular in the mid C19).
Extremely popular as a novelist at the turn of the 20th century, Crawford is now little read; it is somewhat ironic that he may now be best known for a few ghost stories, pieces which Crawford wrote largely to help keep his name before the public and/or to make some quick and easy cash.
Crawford was indeed a Catholic, although this fact really doesn't figure into much of his fiction (the ghostly stuff, at least) in any particularly noticeable way, although some of his non-fiction is on Catholic subjects.

 Saracinesca by F. Marion Crawford - Free eBook
Set chiefly in Rome during the 1860s, the novel paints a rich picture of the period, detailing the spiritual and economic problems of the aristocracy at a time when its influence and status were under attack from the emerging forces of modernity.
Indeed, it will come as no surprise to learn that not only had Crawford been born in Italian society, and heard many tales of aristocratic intrigue as gossip in his own home, at an early age, he was himself an expert fencer.
Crawford's attention to detail, and his command of Italian history, were proven again and again in his novels, as well as in a later series of histories.
