THE SMALLHYTHE TRIO

Edy, Christopher and Tony

Lived unconventional lives.

Known as the Smallhythe trio…

Women, workmates and wives.

 

They rejected the traditional template

Of how a woman should be.

Wore trousers, wrote plays, were independent,

Fought for women’s equality.

 

Edy was a devoted daughter.

Her mother the actress Ellen Terry,

Whose home is now a museum

Enjoyed by you and me.

 

The Trio set the benchmark

Of what a woman could achieve,

They threw away the corset

Of society’s expectation and need.
