Hilda Hart was born at Woodbridge, Suffolk in 1865, daughter of John Brook Hart and his wife, Anna Marie Smith (1839-23 December 1927) who married at Great Bealings, near Woodbridge on 29 September 1859. In 1871, Hilda was a 5-year-old living at The Thoroughfare, Woodbridge with her parents and three siblings Mabel 10, Hubert Willingham 4 and Francis John Brook 1, all born at Woodbridge.
