Chemist, whose work was cited and admired by eminent chemists of her day, including Professor Thomas Thomson FRS FRSE. A French journal, Annales de chime, contained a long and favourable review by a doctor and chemist in Geneva. When her work was republished in the USA, the editor called her 'the very ingenious Mrs Fulhame' describing her experiments as 'numerous and well-conducted'. She had, he said, successfully opposed 'the opinions of some of our fathers in science'.
The preface to Elizabeth Fulhame's 'Essay...' talks of the work of the French scientist, Antoine-Laurent de Lavoisier, and is dated 5 November 1794. In fact by then, Lavoisier was dead, having been executed by guillotine in May 1794. He was of noble birth, and had a powerful position in the French regime at the time of the French Revolution. We do not know whether this news would have reached Mrs Fulhame when she was writing.
