Emily Mary Shapcote
In 1856, Emily married Edward Gifford Shapcote, Curate of Odiham, Hampshire (and later a missionary in South Africa); her married name is sometimes shown as “Shepcote,” though the original marriage record clearly shows “Shapcole.” In 1866, Emily moved to Roman Catholicism; her husband followed two years later. As of 1906, she was living in Torquay. Her works include:
- Hymns for Infant Children, 1852 (the date is often erroneously shown as 1840); Emily co-authored this work with her aunt Mary Steward (“A.” in the book) and her sister Eleanor Steward (“C.”).
- Eucharistic Hours, 1886
