Lady Charlotte Elliott (March 18, 1789 – September 22, 1871) was an English poet and hymn writer. Charlotte spent the first 32 years of her life in Clapham. She was an invalid and was often a great sufferer during the last 50 years of her life.
In 1823, she moved to Brighton. She was a member of the Church of England. Charlotte was confined to her home and unable to attend church services. Miss Elliott wrote about 150 hymns and many poems, some of which were printed anonymously, with Just As I Am probably the best-known.
