COBBOLD, Miss Emily Clementina

1859 - 1941

Baptised at Walton cum Felixstowe, Suffolk on 20 April 1859, daughter of Horace Cobbold (1824-1890), farmer at Capel Hall, and his wife Katherine Sarah née Haward (1831-1914) who married at Sproughton in 1854. A sister of Florence Jane Cobbold [q.v.] and a member of the Ipswich Art Club 1883-1887 she exhibited from Capel Hall, Trimley St Martin in 1883 four table lots 'Water Bottle', 'Plaque' and two 'Tea Set'. She married in 1887, John Sheridan Clarke and she died at Harwich, Essex in 1941, aged 83.

A Miss E. Cobbold also exhibited in 1883 (item 666a) from Bramford, a table lot 'Cup and Saucer'. As she is stated to be a member when Miss Emily just an exhibitor I think that these are one and the same person and also Sproughton is adjacent to Bramford.
