Notes:
Tim Harding (personal communication) gives 1853 as year of birth and gives 'Elizabeth Helen Sidney' as her correct name. John Saunders has 'Helena Eliza Sidney' on his blog, and on a BritBase page he gives 'Helen' or 'Ellen' as the first name she assumed at some point, and 'Eliza', 'Elise' and 'Elizabeth' as various forms of her second name found in various sources. Saunders also gives 'Eliza Truelove' as her birth name but gives her birth date as 23 July 1858.
