From Cotswoldsaonb: "Olive Lloyd-Baker was born ... the middle of three daughters of Michael Granville Lloyd-Baker, eldest son and heir to the Estate. There are glimpses of her strong character in the diaries of her uncle Arthur Lloyd-Baker, who obviously had great fondness for his three nieces. She took instantly to his Christmas present to her in 1903 of a wooden rocking horse, had high spirits for "Uncle Arthur" at the age of two, and as a teenager was intellectually well developed and good at conversation. Olive's father was killed in action with the Gloucestershire Yeomanry in Sinai in May 1916. With her uncle away in Flanders serving in the Oxon & Bucks Light Infantry, she was brought up by her grandfather Granville (who died in 1924) to manage the affairs of the estate. This she did for some fifty years from coming into her inheritance at the age of 22 up to the time of her death as the result of a stroke at the age of 72 ..." this article contains much more information about "Miss Olive" and her full life.

Suffered from deafness throughout her life. At the family home, Hardwick Court, she built up a collection of agricultural bygones, such as farm waggons and carts.
