Possible Suffragette Links to Sawbridgeworth - Who was K. E.?

The above picture, showing a suffragette May Day parade, possibly in 1909, was posted in the Rogues Gallery some time ago.  Maureen is researching Emily Wilding Davison who was killed by the King's horse during the Derby in 1913. She is currently trying to identify the suffragette known only by her signature, K. E.  She was the person that sent the above card to a Dr. Frank Brickwell. It turn out that Emily was in or near Sawbridgewortj as a child. (circa 1880?) and may have met K. E. there. In addition there is a strong family connection between Frank Brickwell and Sawbridgeworth.
