Frances Matilda SAVORY (née COWPER) (1849-1883)
Frances Matilda Savory, née Cowper (1849-1883), was the first wife of Arthur Herbert Savory of Aldington Manor, and was friendly with the Sladden family.
Frances Cowper was born at Herne Bay, Kent, in 1849, the daughter of Charles and Frances Cowper. It seems as though her parents must have died as, in 1851, she was a visitor in the home of Charles and Lydia Besant in Watford. By 1861 she was described as their adopted daughter and lived with them at their home in Watford, together with their three children.
On 12th November 1873, Frances married Arthur Herbert Savory at Alton, Hampshire. He had recently taken on the tenancy of Aldington Manor House and farm, Worcestershire. Their daughter, Cynthia Mildred, was born the following year and baptised at Badsey on 15th November.
Frances Savory died on 5th October 1883 and was buried in Badsey churchyard.
