Lovelace, Dame Ada
Noble from Elfhame visiting Goldberg Manor and under consideration for sponsored membership in the family
Formally Dame Augusta Ada King, Countess of Lovelace. A knight and lady of the noble court with an interest in mathematics and mechanics. She has shown a remarkable understanding of “Uncle Babby”’s difference and analytic engines based solely upon his published writings, and made an effort to reproduce one of his early models using parts available in Elfhame. Upon conversing with her, Isaac Goldberg realized that she could be of value to the family and benefit in return, and suggested that she visit the Manor. She is currently being strongly considered for sponsored membership, the only real concerns being whether a woman with resources of her own would care to join with the Family and whether she might not be more valuable as a member of the Court than as a member of the Family.
