Additional Information: After signing the 1866 petition, Rose became an NSWS contact in the area in which she was living, north of the river Thames, in 1867. At some point she moved to the Cotswolds, signing another petition there in 1870 and likely organising two more in 1871 and 1872. In 1871, Rose was living in the village of Bourton-on-the-Hill, where she refused to pay her taxes in protest at not having a vote, and her property was seized to pay the costs. She did this intermittently over the years and was one of the first women to advocate 'no taxation without representation'. Her husband Charles, whom she married at some point in the 1870s, was a women's suffrage supporter too, and subscribed to the Manchester NSWS until the late 1870s.
