It will take an age to list all the links. The 1881 census is what I started with as that gives the address you have. I show above the link for her baptism which is probably the best way to set you on a path for the others. Before clicking on the baptism entry scroll down and you will see a link to the 1861 census. Click on the link and before viewing the image, click on Catherine Ashley (mother) and that will give you access to other links.

The 1881 census lists Mary Ashley’s occupation as an astronomer so may be she was more that an amateur. Good luck with your book. I hope you find time to publish a piece on Miss Ashley.
