História 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 in 1879 to George Collins and then in 1885 to William Norton Western; this explains her married names Collins and Western in official records.
