Birth: May 27, 1813
Death: Jan. 17, 1903

Louisa Dunnell was born in Dunwich in Suffolk, but moved to London where, on the 5th. April 1834 at St. Mary's Church in Bryanston Square, she married another native of her county, Newson Garrett (q.v.). In March 1842, they moved back to Suffolk. Two of their twelve children achieved fame : Elizabeth Garrett Anderson (q.v.) was the first British woman to become a doctor and the first woman mayor, and Millicent Fawcett became the President of the National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies, and the wife of Henry Fawcett who, in spite of being blinded at the age of 24, was a Liberal M.P. and Postmaster General. It has to be said that, unlike Newson, Louisa was not keen on Elizabeth becoming a doctor, and is said to have exclaimed, "The disgrace will kill me".  (bio by: Iain MacFarlaine)
