Ellen Biddell was a wealthy lady. An estate of £14,097 in 1914 would today be worth in the region of £1.2 million using the retail price index as a comparison. She was unmarried and had lived with two of her sisters in Henley Road, Ipswich for many years before she ended up in a 9 room house, Violet Lodge, on the 1911 census with just her, a resident cook and a housemaid ..... and, of course, her tortoise !
There is no record of how many years the tortoise outlived his / her loving owner, but they can live for in excess of 100 years. I hope her descendants found him a nice home to go to.
