Elizabeth Reid Cotton, Lady Hope (1842-1922)

Elizabeth Reid Cotton was a reformer and evangelist. With her father, General Sir Arthur Cotton, she was a religious temperance crusader in Kent, England. In 1877 she married a widower, retired Admiral Sir James Hope, and became Lady Hope of Carriden. She and her husband continued with evangelical work. He died four years after the marriage, but she kept the name "Lady Hope" through her life. There is a story in circulation about Lady Hope being witness to Charles Darwin converting to Christianity on his deathbed. This British carte de visite was produced by Elliott & Fry, 55 & 56 Baker Street, London.
