Elizabeth Anne Galton was the daughter of Samuel Tertius Galton and the eldest sister of Erasmus Galton, and during her life met many interesting and influential people.

When she was an old lady her children persuaded her to write her memoirs, which have been handed down and copied by various descendants of the Galton family. Dr. John Lewis Moilliet, deceased, and his son James Andrew Keir Moilliet, descendants of Elizabeth Anne''s sister Lucy Harriot Galton, copied and edited the memoirs in 1977. Recently Yvonne Solomon, the great, great, great granddaughter of Lucy Harriot Galton and a 3rd cousin of Dr. John Lewis Moilliet, has fully transcribed the memoirs.
