She was the second ever verified supercentuarian, after Geert Adriaans Boomgaard. She was the first known person whose life spanned three centuries and the first validated female supercentenarian. She was born on the small island of Saint Peter Port and spent most of her early life there. She then traveled to Bristol, England around 1815, where she received her education. Some say she could recall the French revolutionary war, even having met Charles François Dumouriez, a general of the French revolutionary war. She married her husband, John Neve, on January 18, 1823. The two had no known children. They lived in England for 25 years until John passed away in 1849 and Neve went back to her hometown, Saint Peter Port. She died on April 4, 1903, a month before her 111th birthday. Flags in Guernsey were lowered for her as a show of respect. She was one of the last living people from the 18th century.
