Ada was born in Bermondsey in about 1872, to Frederick & Jane Lee. She married Stephen Dungate in 1891, and in 1892 when her first son was born they were living with her parents at 6 Weston Place in Bermondsey. A brief description of this part of Bermondsey in the 1890s is given here. From then until the end of the century they lived in Camberwell and Lambeth.

By 1901, Ada was a widow and lived at 12 Tennyson Road, South Wimbledon with her children, and was employed as a laundry ironer. In her later years she continued to live in South Wimbledon, where she was still living in the late 1920s.

Ada on the beach about 1924, with her grandson Stephen. A formidable-looking Ada in her well-kept garden, probably in the 1930s or 40s.
