Eliza Cook (December 24, 1818 – September 23, 1889)

Eliza Cook, lesbian Victorian poet and one of the partners of American actress Charlotte Cushman, lived frequently at Ingress Abbey where she had a room and wrote much of her poetry. Eliza Cook was an English author and poet associated with the Chartist movement. She was a proponent of political freedom for women, and believed in the ideology of self-improvement through education, something she called "levelling up." This made her hugely popular with the working class public in both England and America. She was a close friend and lover of American actress Charlotte Cushman.
