Her eldest brother was George Augustus Frederick Fitzclarence (1794 – 1842), the first Earl of Munster. Amelia was married (1830) to Lucius Bentinck Cary (1803 – 1884), tenth Viscount Falkland, and was the mother of his heir Lucius William Cary (1831 – 1877). Her son was styled master of Falkland, but he predeceased his father. He had married but died childless and the title passed to an uncle.
When her husband was appointed as governor of Bombay in India (1848 – 1853), Lady Falkland accompanied him there. She was intrigued by the life and customs of India, and made several expeditions in the Deccan region. On their return to Britain, the couple visited Egypt and Palestine. Lady Falkland left an account of these travels, which were published in two volumes as, Chow-Chow: Being Selections from a Journal kept in India, Egypt, and Syria (1857). Lady Falkland died (July 2, 1858) aged forty-one.
