Emily Shepcote

June 19, 1828.

In 1856, Emily married Edward Gifford Shapcote, Curate of Odiham, Hampshire (and later a missionary in South Africa); her married name is sometimes shown as Shepcote, though the original marriage record clearly shows Shapcole. In 1866, Emily moved to Roman Catholicism; her husband followed two years later. As of 1906, she was living in Torquay. Her works include:

  1. Heavenly Father, from Thy Throne
  2. Jesus, Holy, Undefiled
  3. O Jesus, Dearest Lord, I Cry to Thee
  4. Queen of the Holy Rosary
