12 Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
13 Rosina Doyle Wheeler
Rosina Anne Doyle Wheeler was born 2 Nov 1802 at Ballywire near Limerick as the fifth child and fifth daughter of Frances Massey Wheeler of Ballywire; esq; and his wife Anne Doyle.  At a literary party she met the young Edward Bulwer-Lytton later to become a famous author, but then only known as winning a poetry prize.  They married 29 Aug 1827 at St James' Picadilly, and moved to the country.  They had two children, Emily who died age 20 and Edward later the first Earl Lytton.  By Rosina's later account, Edward was a vicious and unscrupulous man who physically and mentally abused her, squandered her inheritance, had mistresses under her nose, forced her to live in the country without money or friends, despised everyone she knew, took her children from her, and drove her away without a living.  Eventually he even had her confined for some weeks in a madhouse.  Her revenge was to write all of this down and have it published, which was done both in her lifetime, and in more detail shortly after her death.   Prior to this however, she discusses her own "Wasted Life" in a journal she kept in 1835, which was later published at this link.  Her son also published a biography of his father but glossing over his bad qualities.  It was left to the grandson of this union to publish a truly unbiased attempt to envision both partners in this ill-fated marriage.
