Historia biográfica

Eldest daughter of George Lane, a market gardener in Pulborough, Sussex. Lady's maid to Lucy Renshaw, travelling companion of Amelia A. B. Edwards. She married twice, firstly to George Collins and then in 1885 to William Norton Western; this explains her married names Collins and Western in official records.

Historia archivística

Previously in the hands of Jenny Lane's family (great-nephew Mr J. Martin of Broadstairs, and later his widow Mrs Patricia Martin).
