None given



St Michael's Vicarage, Coventry



Margarette was born in Saxony, Germany in 1872. She married (see) Rev. Canon John Howard Bertram Masterman who was an ardent supporter of the women's suffrage campaign and was often with Margarette at suffrage meetings. Margarette belonged to the Coventry Women's Suffrage Society - the local branch of the NUWSS - and was committted to law abiding methods of campaigning. The couple were against the tactics of suffragette militancy. In 1912, Margarette left Coventry when her husband was posted to a new parish - Mary-le-bow in Cheapside, London. However, alongside her husband, Margarette continued quietly campaigning for the cause as well as undertaking charitable work. Researcher: Tara Morton.
