East Lynne was wildly popular for many years after its publication. There were numerous stage adaptations, under its own title and copycat versions, and it was a staple offering of many touring stock companies during the latter half of the 19th century.

There were also a number of film adaptations, of which the 1931 film received an Academy award nomination for Best Picture. The latest film version is a 1982 BBC made for television production.
Mary Armstrong also stated in her 2015 article that the 1993 Robin Williams film Mrs. Doubtfire was also inspired by the East Lynne story (Victorian Literature and Culture, Volume 43, Issue 4, December 2015, pp. 745 - 764).
