Margaret Wolfe Hungerford, née Hamilton, (27 April 1855 – 24 January 1897), was an Irish novelist whose light romantic fiction was popular throughout the English-speaking world in the late 19th century.

She was born in County Cork, Ireland on April 27th, 1855. Her father was Canon Fitzjohn Stannus Hamilton, rector and vicar-choral at St. Faughnan's cathedral in Ross Carberry. As a child she enjoyed making up stories, and won prizes for her writing at school. She was educated at Portarlington College.

In 1872 she married Edward Argles, a Dublin solicitor, who died less than 6 years later. They had three daughters.
