After her husband was pensioned She lived in South sea. As he belonged to the Civilian branch, Mrs. Poulter had to fight undauntedly in order to maintain a calling acquaintance with the wives of executive officers, and in fact the highest She had on her list was a commander's lady. When Paymaster Poulter died, and his pension ceased, She gave up the struggle. She had no children, and moved to Brighton with an annuity of £150 a year derived from her husband's insurance of £2000, and a life interest in some property left by her mother.
