From bits of information collected from several different news articles as well as some searching through census records, I've deduced that Maria Elizabeth Robinson was born in Leeds, Yorkshire in 1878 to George Henry Robinson, a successful cloth merchant in Leeds. I found a census record from 1881 listing her as Mary Elizabeth Robinson in George's household.
