Researching life of Belfast-born writer

I am researching the life of the writer and traveller Beatrice Grimshaw.

She was born at Cloona, near Dunmurry, in 1870 and died at Bathurst, New South Wales, Australia in 1953.

A prolific author, she travelled through the South Sea Islands, living for 27 years in Papua New Guinea.

I would be grateful to hear from anyone who may possibly have known her, or have letters, or photographs, relating to her life.

I can be contacted at 30 Ballymacashen Road, Killinchy, Co Down, BT23 6SH, or by email:
