Bapt. 8 March 1969, Clifton, St. Andrew

Married in 1898 to William Wyamar Vaughan, MVO

Author of the following:

* "Out of the Past: [A memoir of John Addington Symonds] with and account of Janet Catherine Symonds by Mrs. Walter Leaf," John Murray, [1925].

* "Days Spent on a Doge's Farm" T. Fischer Unwin : Padua, Italy [1893]

* "Our Life in the Swiss Highlands," co-authored with her father, J. A. Symonds, [1891]

Note: "Out of the Past," a memoir of Margaret's father, J.A. Symonds, was reviewed in 1925 by Virginia Woolf. Virginia Woolf's father was a friend of J.A. Symonds and Madge Vaughan's husband was Virginia Woolf's cousin.

When Madge Vaughan died, Virginia Woolf wrote to Madge's daughter, Dame Janet Vaughan:
"I hope you won't mind me writing to you. I have thought so much of you since Madge's death. I can't describe to you what she was like when she used to stay with us at St. Ives and how we worshiped her."

Madge Vaughan was the inspiration for the character of Sally Beaton in Woolf's "Mrs. Dalloway."
