Margaret Oliphant wrote over a hundred novels and around thirty non-fiction books. Her labours made it possible for her two sons to be educated at Eton (they died before her); she also supported her nephew Frank. During her last years she worked on a history of the Blackwood publishing house which is a rich source of 19th-century literary gossip. She died in London 25 June 1897.
