Rosina and Edward separated in 1836. Rosina was an Irish beauty, novellist and satirist. She wrote 14 novels, plus poems and letters. One of her books was titled "A Blighted Marriage". Her husband certified her as insane in 1859 but she was released after five weeks due to a public outcry.
When Rosina died in 1882, her grave had no headstone and it was only in 1995 her Great-Great-Grandson, the 2nd Lord Cobbold had one placed on her grave with a suitable inscription carved in the stone.
