Louisa Pope (née Barber).
Louisa Barber was the fifth child of Reuben Barber, a shepherd and his wife Elizabeth Dewsbury.
She was born and schooled at Welney on the Cambridgeshire/Norfolk border and then went to work as a servant in Witchford, Cambridgeshire, for the Hopkin household. In 1902 she gave birth to her first child, outside of marriage.
She went on to marry Flanders Hopkin (of the household to which she was a servant) who was 27 years her senior and the couple had four children. Flanders died in 1910, leaving Louisa as a young widow with five young children.
She later married John Pope and had two further children - the first died at birth after being strangled by the umbilical cord.

Louisa appears in a 1961 newspaper article about the fruit harvesting season at Witchford. I've reconstructed it for the web.
