Shared note

Had to leave school when father remarried. Father and Step-mother had another daughter. The boys were turned out, and Ada was forced to act as an unpaid servant. Then her father died. Her Step-mother didn't want her and put her into an orphanage. Her brother Charles eventually rescued her.
