Emiline Sarah STOKES

Emiline Sarah Stokes had been the principal of Sudbury School of Art, and had also taught art at Sunderland Training College, before retiring to Polperro. She was instrumental in setting up the Polperro Art Society, which held two exhibitions in 'The Foresters' Hall' in 1938 and 1939 before closing down on the outbreak of World War II. She had previously exhibited her watercolours with various art groups. She remained involved in the artistic life of Polperro until the mid-1950s but the whereabouts of her Polperro work is unknown.

At the time of her death in 1969 she was living in Perranzabuloe, near Perranporth.
