She worked alone in her family home, Low Birk Hatt Farm, dilapidated 80-acres in Baldersdale, west of Cotherstone, in the North Riding of Yorkshire . She had run the farm by herself since the age of 35 following the deaths of her parents and uncle. No electricity or running water and struggling to survive on £240–280 a year, poverty and hardship, especially in the harsh Pennine winters, when she had to work outside tending her few cattle in ragged clothes in temperatures well below freezing.
