The Children’s Champion


In 1868 Hester Langley left her wealthy home and went to the East End of London, where she set up a temporary home for the unwanted waifs who roamed the streets.  Hester’s titled parents had disowned her, but she received financial help from her godmother, Lady Ella Combes.
