can I add I think the mum cared.
Although she was abandoned Violet was left wrapped
undercover and somewhere warm where she would be found.
Did her mum even time it for near to when trains would be coming and going.
This was a mum who did not want her baby to die.

As far as I know she did marry, and the 1939 Register shows her living in Matlock, next door to Frederick Ward.

Added:  Birth date on the Register is 11 August 1894.

I wonder if it is just coincidence that Violet would have likely been born not long after Wilde’s play was first performed and was very much in the public eye. Whatever, its nice that her story seems to have a happy ending.
