ActivityLady Helen Kirk nee Cooke (d 1914), went to Zanzibar to marry Sir John Kirk, GCMG, KCB, (1832-1922), physician, administrator, naturalist and photographer, in 1867 and remained there until her children's education necessitated her return to England in 1883. Throughout her time in Zanzibar she assisted her over-worked husband with his correspondence, and as a result certain political letters were addressed to her. She died in 1914.
