Individual's Details

[Mrs] Steven or Stephen William [full name unknown but possibly Sarah Constance] Silver

Career Museum Professional / Natural Historian / Businessman

Biography Her full name is probably [according to the 1901 census in which she is the only appropriately aged and located female] Sarah Constance Silver, aged 60 [that is twenty one years younger than her husband, so she might not be the right person] born in Holborn, London and living in Letcombe Regis, Berkshire. All items from Silver were previously displayed at the private museum at the Silver home in Letcomb Manor, Wantage. After retiring from his business, Silver devoted himself to his collection and private museum, his wife gave his collections to Oxford after his death (see her husband's entry for more information).
