Dame Elizabeth Taylor Cadbury (1858-1951)

Born in 1858, Elizabeth Taylor Cadbury went on to devote her life to philanthropic work, supporting social welfare and education as well as promoting international relations.

Perhaps best known as the wife of Quaker chocolate manufacturer George Cadbury, Elizabeth's public philanthropic work is well documented in her personal archive which contains hundreds of letters, diaries and typescripts of speeches, chronicling her involvement in schemes to reform housing, industrial working conditions and school medical services.

But despite her vast work, Elizabeth's life and work have been largely overlooked in recent scholarship and has only featured briefly in histories of Bournville.

Elizabeth passed away in 1951.
