Adelaide Springett was born in February 1893 in Wapping, both her parents were street sellers. Adelaide’s twin sisters, Ellen and Margaret, died at birth; another sister, Susannah, died aged four. Adelaide’s last known address was recorded in 1901 when, aged eight, she lodged with her mother at a Salvation Army shelter.
Emily Wilding Davison was a militant women's suffrage activist who, on 4 June 1913, after a series of actions that were either self destructive or violent, stepped in front of the horse of King George V at the Epsom Derby, sustaining injuries that resulted in her death four days later.
