Agnes Grant Hay was the eldest of seven children of Dr William Gosse and his Scottish wife Agnes (Grant). The family came out to SA on the Elizabeth, via Pt Melbourne, on 31 Dec, 1850. They lived principally in a house on North Tce where the Shell Building now stands. Her father practised medicine in Adelaide. Agnes travelled frequently between Australia and England before and after her marriage. She met the colonist, philanthropist and politician, Alexander Hay, in 1867, and became his second wife in 1872 when she was 34. Alexander Hay died suddenly on 4 Feb 1898, and over the next eleven years Agnes and her two daughters engaged in travel to the UK and to France, Germany and Norway. In 1902 she published her book of memoirs and family history (After Glow Memories, published in 1905) written as though fictional. -- cf. AustLit.
