Anna Maria Hall (6 January 1800 – 30 January 1881) was an Irish novelist who often published as “Mrs. S. C. Hall”. She married Samuel Carter Hall, the writer on art, who described her in Retrospect of a Long Life, from 1815 to 1883.[1] She was born Anna Maria Fielding in Dublin, but left Ireland at the age of 15.

Hall was born in Dublin on 6 January 1800. She lived with her mother, a widow named Sarah Elizabeth Fielding, and stepfather, George Carr of Graigie, Wexford, until 1815. The daughter came to England with her mother in 1815, and on 20 September 1824, married Samuel Carter Hall. Her mother lived with her in London until she died.
