Elizabeth Ada Chappell was born on 26 May 1872 at Bath.1 She was the daughter of Edwin Chappell and Harriet Oaten.1

She was recorded as living with her parents and siblings Edwin, William, Albert and Arthur in the 1881 census at 2 Brook Place, Bath.2 Elizabeth Ada Chappell Ada never married but she gave birth in 1899 to a daughter Annie when she was about 16 years of age. Annie was brought up believing that Ada was her elder sister. Ada's occupation was that of a cook. Ada remained living at home and caring for her parents and when Edwin Chappell Senior died he left his home in his will to Ada.

There is some speculation that Ada married. This could be so but she did not live with her husband and Annie was raised to think that Ada was her sister.

An English relative recalled:-
"I can remember Great Aunt Ada very well (the photo of Harriet Chappell is exactly as I remember Aunt Ada), she must have looked like her mother. Aunt Ada always wore long black clothes, walked with a stick, a l ways in the gutter not on the pavement. she said that the traffic would never hit her. She was a very jolly lady as I remember her. We spent two summer holidays in Bath with them just after the war."1

Elizabeth died in 1952 at Bath.1
