Elizabeth Blew RICHARDSON née PYM and the REYNOLDS

Alison Bailey has written with the Amersham Museum about the three Richardson sisters Josephine, Caroline and Mona, noting that they were independently-minded women – unusually so for their time – who travelled widely, even when single. They pioneered women’s education, taught the daughters of the Establishment and were probably active in the suffrage movement. What were the formative influences on the young girls?

I have written an article about their mother Elizabeth Blew RICHARDSON née PYM who, widowed, brought them up and of the connection with the REYNOLDS family. It is available here.
