A St Ives Exhibitor and the wife of Arthur MEADE (1863-1942), his biography in Hardie (2009) reveals what little we know of Mabel. Reputedly from Dorchester, Dorset, Mabel and Arthur, with their daughter Celia, lived on the terrace at St Ives before moving to Trelyon Hill in Godrevy in 1904.
Nothing is yet known about her creative work, although an M E Meade was a signatory of the Glanville letter in 1898, about land developments in St Ives, and this may well have been Mrs Meade.
