Henrietta Grace Smyth, was the third wife of Rev. Baden Powell (the previous two having died), and was a gifted musician and artist. When Agnes was only two years of age, the Reverend Baden Powell died. In order to honor him after his death, Henrietta added Baden to their surname and the family has since been known as Baden-Powell. The name was eventually legally changed by Royal Licence on 30 April 1902.
