January 1885 moved to Pirbright from Lewisham, Kent according to her book "A History of Pirbright"

From 1885 her life was devoted to life in Pirbright; she kept a diary and researched many of the older buildings in the village. She used the Court Rolls and Census to find out the owners and tenants of most of the buildings. Many pages are devoted to the different occupations of the villagers; she used the Parish Registers and Trade Directories for this exercise. During her walks around the village she loved talking to the older members of the community and has jotted down many snippets of information gleaned in this way.
