Agnes did not marry she lived in Petersfield HAM, and is said to have been very puritanical. She died aged 90.
John Hill writes of his fathers memories of a visit to Agnes. "My father said that he and his mother stayed there once in 1916, and, as a concession he was allowed to read Pilgrims Progress instead of the Bible. House work on Sundays was forbidden, and even on the coldest days only bread and cold meats could be eaten. He also said that on one Sunday his mother, Mary got out her knitting and was given a severe reprimand and told to put it away".
She was said to be very rich, was fond of cats, and rarely wore any colour but black. Her days were passed reading "good books" seated in an uncomfortable chair.
