Elizabeth Ann Finn née McCaul
     Elizabeth Ann McCaul was born on 14 March 1825 in Palace Zamoisky, Warsaw, Poland, She was a british subject born to missionary parents.1,2,3 She was the daughter of Alexander McCaul and Mary Clarke Crosthwaite.1 She married James Finn on 2 January 1846 in St John's, Bethnal Green, London, England, by Rev J C Crosthwaite the rector of St Mary-at-Hill. James was described as her Brittanic Majesty's Consul at Jerusalem and Elizabeth the eldest daughter of Rev McCaul, rector of St James, Duke's Place.1,4,5 James was the British Consul in Jerusalem in 1850s and later in the Ottoman Empire. Elizabeth a writer and philanthropist who helped establish the experimental farm at the village of Artas outside Bethlehem.3 The Finns made plans to return to England in 1863, eventually leaving on 14 July. They spent the next three years visiting friends and relations, finally settling in an old fashioned, delightful house at Hammersmith in what was then little more than a rural and sequestered spot. Here they enjoyed a quiet, restful life, filled up by parochial and literary work.3 Her husband James died on 29 August 1872 in Wimbledon, Surrey, England, aged 66 James' health, broken by his strenuous and anxious Consular life was much impaired.2,3,6 Elizabeth was listed as the head of the family of on the census of 3 April 1881 in Fern House, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, England, Elizabeth was a boarding house mistress with her daughter Constance assisting her. Fern House seems to be a school.7 Elizabeth was listed as the head of the family of on the census of 5 April 1891 in 11 and 12 Brook Green, Hammersmith, London, England, Elizabeth is described as a literary author living with her daughter Constance, described as single and grandaughter Myrtle who was aged 6 and was born in Petersham Surrey. Elizabeth wrote many books icluding "the strong-willed and intelligent" "A Home in the Holy Land" "A tale illustrating customs and incidents in modern Jerusalem" "A Third Year in Jerusalem" "A tale illustrating customs and incidents of modern Jerusalem" or, a sequel to "Home in the Holy Land."8,9 Elizabeth Finn aged 72 and her daughter Constance founded the Distressed Gentlefolk's Aid Association or D.G.A.A., the predecessor of Elizabeth Finn Care on May 5th 1897 ‘in the hope of alleviating some of the distress which has overtaken ladies and gentlemen who have seen better days. The worsening economic conditions of the day prompted her to help those in her immediate circle forced to live miserably and without hope. The Association raised money to provide grants and loans that were disbursed quickly and efficiently to those most in need. Elizabeth's formal participation in the DGAA ended in 1901, at the age of 76, but the minute books of the Association reveal that for the next twenty years she continued to take an active interest in the lives and progress of the growing number of beneficiaries. As she had learned from her days in Palestine, a small amount of help may be just enough to get someone back on an even footing allowing him or her to live, as they would wish to.3 Elizabeth was listed as head of household in the census of 31 March 1901 in 75 Brook Green, Hammersmith, London, England, Elizabeth and her daughter Constance were both described as secretarial literary. The household also consisted of two young servants and a visitor.10 Elizabeth died on 18 January 1921 in 75 Brook Green, Hammersmith, London, England, aged 95 Elizabeth dressed, came downstairs unaided. Constance wrote movingly of her mother's final moments in her book 'Reminiscences". After 'a brief fit of pain - a few sighs and God took her to her rest. Thus ended a wonderful and outstanding life of consistent Christian character and endeavour, beloved by all who had the honour of knowing her.' She was buried in Wimbledon churchyard.11,3,4 Elizabeth was a shy and modest woman was however also a social entrepreneur in the same mould as her distinguished contemporaries. In every sense she was a model Victorian. She spoke seven languages, was a talented musician, read widely and was a devout Christian. Like Florence Nightingale and Elizabeth Fry, she devoted her life to charitable works.
