Green was the daughter of a Capt. Green, who was killed at the Battle of Minden in 1759. Her brother was Charles Green (1749-1831), who rose to become a General, a Baronet and Governor of Suriname.

In 1783 she married Thomas David Boswell, with whom she had four children, two of whom, Maria (1788-1811) and Thomas Alexander, survived infancy. She appears to have separated from her husband in 1799 and details of her life after this time are sketchy.1

One such letter was written by Boswell requesting medical advice for his friend Dr Johnson shortly before Johnson's death in 1784.
