EF was born at Westminster
, eldest of five surviving daughters and reputedly her father's favourite.

15 February 1714
EF wrote the last-dated of her remembrances or diary entries, describing "the dreadfull'st storme and hurrycane of wind for severall howers was ever heard."
7 April 1714
EF died in her mid seventies.
