Queer Places:
25 Warwick Gardens, Kensington, London W14 8PH, UK

Lucy Adela Jenner (May 24, 1859 – December 27, 1909) participated in the Women’s Suffrage movement. She was the daughter of Sir William Jenner, 1st Baronet , who served Queen Victoria as Physician-in-Ordinary from 1861 – 1890, and Adela Lucy Leman Adey, the daughter of Stephen Adey.

She lived at 25, Warwick Gardens, Kensington. She died on December 27, at 15 Fitzroy Square, at 25. Her obituary said: "She had other interests — artistic, intellectual, philanthropic, but all were subordinated to the cause of Women's Suffrage, which she served with a rare combination of enthusiasm and judgment. To it she devoted her time and strength, and while she made many converts, her work in confirming the weak and wavering was not less notable, for she was never content without pointing out and insisting on the true principles on which the claim is founded. Her logical mind refused to be led away to side-issues. She saw straight, and she spoke straight. We admired her strenuous work, we loved her fresh and vigorous personality—"her radiant cheerfulness," to quote the words of one who knew her."
