East Horsley is a quiet discreet village on the Guildford to London commuter run from Surrey up to the city. With its quiet, classic architecture and atmosphere of old England, you’d never imagine it was deemed England’s richest village in 2011 and it’s not the sort of place you would think was teeming with crowds of claimants seeking to make their injury claim Horsley. However, the history of East Horsley contains a jewel of a story not many people know of, because here lived one of the most accomplished women ever. She was Ada, Lady Lovelace, daughter of Lord Byron the poet and one of the most brilliant mathematical brains England ever produced. Ada Lovelace was the first female geek. She described herself as a “poetical scientist” and a “Metaphysician and Analyst”. She befriended Charles Babbage, the “father of modern computers” who devised the first proper “difference engine”, in his mechanical calculator.
Ada Lovelace wrote notes on his “Analytical Engine” including the first ever algorithm or as we would call it today, computer program. It might have seemed obscure in the 1840s when she did it, but today we take algorithms for granted as the concepts behind the technology which powers the web, including the brilliant algorithms devised by such companies as Google, Amazon and conceptual inputs by scientists like Stephen Wolfram. Lovelace was also acquainted with other great scientists including Michael Faraday, who invented a whole collection of electrical devices, upon which our twentieth century technology rests, and Charles Wheatstone, whose “Wheatstone bridge” he devised to measure unknown electrical resistance (Ohms) and together with the Kelvin Bridge, became gadgets indispensable in the precise control of electrical devices, potentiometers: as in “turn it up”, “turn it down” or “turn it off”.
