Emmeline Pankhurst Emmeline Pankhurst was painted in 1927 by Georgina Brackenbury, who, like her sister Marie, had herself been a suffragette: © National Portrait Gallery. Their mother Hilda Brackenbury was also a suffragette. She lived at 2 Campden Hill Square, known as Mouse Castle because members of the WSPU went there to recuperate after being released under the Cat and Mouse Act. After she died the Suffragette Fellowship commissioned a plaque to hang in the house, now in the Musuem of London. Mary Thompson wrote in a letter accompanying her contribution to the plaque: 'The Brackenbury trio were so whole-hearted and helpful during all the early strenuous years of the militant suffragette movement. We remember them with honour.'
