Found in Public Genealogy Records:
Frances Jane New 1871–1889 was born in 1871 and died in Swindon, Wiltshire, United Kingdom at age 18 in 1889.

Her father: Frederick James New 1844–1878 was born in Swindon, Wiltshire, England and died in Wroughton, Wiltshire, England in a train accident at age 34. He was a railway clerk. His father was Joseph John New 1796–1847, born in Chelsea, Middlesex, England and died in Swindon, Wiltshire, the son of Joseph New 1766–1817. His mother was Jane Lancaster Goodman New 1809–1873, born in St Luke, Middlesex, England. She first married Joseph John New 1796–1847 in 1833 and he died 14 years later in 1847. They lived on Goddard Arms, High Street in Swindon. In 1849 she married Fredericks's new step father William Westmacott 1809–1873 of Shalbourne, Wiltshire, England.
His siblings were:
Joseph John New 1834–1882
Ann Maria New 1835–1837
Charles Goodman New 1837–1847
Isabella New 1841–1844
Albert Henry New 1846–1921

His Half Siblings were:
Sarah Ann New born 1816
Harriett New born 1818
Margaret New born 1819
Jane New born 1822
Mary Elizabeth New 1827–1888
His Half Sibling:
John Valentine Westmacott 1835–1867

Her mother: Sarah Sophie Ball 1847–1871, born and died (probably during Frances's childbirth) in 1871 in Swindon. Her own father was William Ball 1822–1887 of Sportwood, Gloucestershire. Her mother was Sarah Maria Wall Ball 1819–1899 of Horsley, Gloucestershire, the daughter of James Wall 1779–1845 of King Stanley, Gloucestershire and Sarah Elliotts Neale Wall 1784–1852 also of Horsley.
Her mother's siblings were:
Walter Dyer Ball 1845–1878
Samuel S Ball born 1849
Clara Ball 1851–1852 dided as an infant
Annie Ball 1853–1916
William Ball born 1855
Arthur Charles Blackwell Ball born 1857
Elizabeth Lettie Ball born 1859
John Frederick Ball born 1860

After her mother Sarah's death in 1871, her father, a railway clerk an with Frances as an infant, remarried in September 1872 to Isabella Frampton New 1850–1922 at 8 Wood Street in Kings Norton, Birmingham, Worcestershire. She was born in Highworth, Wiltshire, England and was a music teacher. She was the daughter of William Frampton 1813–1875 and Jane Harriet Akers Frampton 1816–1873. She herself had 6 siblings. They immediately had 5 children in succession together, until his death 6 years later.

Sadly, Frederick was killed at work by a train on February 2, 1878 in Swindon, leaving Isabella with 6 children. It appears young Frances New spent her childhood years at a girl's school, RMS or the Royal Masonic School for Girls. It was one of the oldest girls’ schools in England, founded by Chevalier Ruspini in 1788. It was dedicated to educating daughters of members of the Freemasons who were unable to support their families through death, sickness or hardship. Since Frances's father saw an untimely death at age 34, it appears he was a Freemason. The school was located in St John's Hill, Battersea Rise, and was simply referred to as "Clapham J" by students. See Frances listed in attendance at this school in census below.

Her step sister, Edith Bessie New 1877–1951, was a Swindon teacher at age 14 who moved to London and became a famous suffragette, one of the first two suffragettes to use vandalism and violence in their protest. She was an organiser for the Women's Social and Political Union WSPU and often was a travelling speaker for the women's movement.

In 1908, Edith New and Olivia Smith chained themselves to the railing at 10 Downing Street whilst shouting "Votes for Women", and at a later date broke 2 windows there. They were sentenced to two months in prison at Holloway, going on hunger strikes. In the 2015 film "Suffragette" actress Helena Bonham Carter portrays a suffrage character based on Frances's sister's work.

France's Half Siblings were:
Ellen Mary Harris New 1873–1949
Frederick William Westmacott New 1874–1924
Annie Isabella New 1876–1876, died as an infant
Edith Bessie New 1877–1951 (Suffragist, Suffragette)
Henry James Earnshaw New 1878–1879, died as an infant
