"Haslemere, Saturday - The death took place at Haslemere of Mrs Maude Egerton King, wife of Mr Joseph King, formerly MP for North Somerset, in her 61st year.
"Mrs King was the youngest daughter of the late Mr Henry G. Hine, the well-known water-colour painter, and she married Mr King in 1887. She was well known for her literary activities, and was prominently associated with the movement for the revival of peasant arts. In 1894, Mrs King founded, in conjunction with her husband, the Haslemere weaving industry, where women workers are employed on hand looms, and for several years she was hon, secretary of the Peasant Arts Guild.
"In 1910 she founded the "Vineyard," a monthly magazine, and edited it for several years, and she was the author of several volumes of prose and verse."
The same article appeared in the Surrey Mirror. The Gloucestershire Echo titled the article "Death of Mrs M. E. King, Reviver of Peasant Arts", the Western Daily Press "Her Work in Reviving the Peasant Arts" and the Derby Daily Telegraph "Her Interest in Peasant Arts".
