The Vegetarian Society was established in 1847 - more details on Wikipedia (George Bernard Shaw was a member). There was a vegetarian boarding school on Ham Common, which is perhaps a bit far from Camellia Street for Ada to be travelling daily, but it's possible that there were other places, maybe a restaurant, closer to where she lived. Perhaps someone at the Vegetarian Society might know.

My old dictionary from around that period defines vegetarian in the same way as we would today.  There is no indication that would link it to just working with vegetables.

Thanks for all the information, very interesting. I am really surprised vegetarianism has been going for so long. Just shows I shouldn't make assumptions.
