Walk in the footsteps of Ada Lovelace at De Vere Horsley Estate

The 10th October 2023 marks Ada Lovelace Day, which recognises Ada's ground-breaking contribution to computer technology and celebrates the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). This year, De Vere Horsley Estate, located in Surrey and part of De Vere's collection of mansion house estates, is inviting guests to walk in the footsteps of Ada Lovelace at what was her marital home for 17 years. Lovelace, born in 1815, was a well-known mathematician and writer, and was regarded as one of the world's first computer programmers owing to her pioneering work on Charles Babbage's mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine. Ada was the only child of Annabella Milbank and the poet Lord Byron; her mother had mathematical training and insisted on Ada studying mathematics - an unusual education for a woman in the 1800s.
