Eden, Emily, 1797–1869, English novelist. She went with her brother George, Lord Auckland, to India when he was governor-general (1836–42). Her two novels, The Semi-detached House (1859) and The Semi-attached Couple (1860; with biographical introduction by Anthony Eden, 1947), give witty pictures of life in the early 19th cent.
