Christina Rossetti, Frome, Somerset

About seven miles from where I type. She and her mother ran a young ladies school in Frome (Brunswick Place on the Trowbridge Rd) from April 1852- Autumn 1854. She was the niece of the governess at Longleat House, which is presumably what made them choose Frome to locate the school (they were Londoners). The school was not profitable, and they gave up the venture and returned to London.
