Our house is named after two inspirational ladies named Marie Curie and Elizabeth Fry. Marie Curie was a Polish physicist and chemist who conducted pioneering research on radioactivity. She was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize and the only woman to win one in two fields. She was also the only person to win in multiple sciences and was also the first woman to become a professor at the University of Paris.
The second, Elizabeth Fry, was an English prison reformer, social reformer and was referred to as the ‘angel of prisons’. Elizabeth Fry was a major driving force behind new legislation to make the treatment of prisoners more humane and since 2001 has been depicted on the Bank of England £5 note.
