Sophia Simpson – Aunt Sophy – was the sister of the late Mrs. Adams, wife of Josiah Chater’s uncle, William Adams, who had lived at 19 Fitzwilliam Street. She was visited almost everyday at this time by one of Josiah Chater’s family. Josiah records how she took a great deal of interest in what happened in Cambridge; she was also much preoccupied with keeping her financial affairs in order, chiefly to make sure that she had made provision for the old maidservants in her employment.
