Caroline Haddon

Caroline Haddon was the sister of Margaret Haddon, who married James Hinton. Caroline Haddon ran a girls’ boarding school at Dover, and she was in part responsible for funding Havelock Ellis’s medical training. She also edited part of James Hinton’s commonplace book which was published in 1881 as Philosophy and Religion. Caroline Haddon is frequently referred to in Schreiner’s mid-1880s letters, sometimes as ‘Miss H’, in particular in those to Karl Pearson and Havelock Ellis.

It is possible that some letters were exchanged between Schreiner and Caroline Haddon, although none have been traced.
