Clara CHANNER b: 1817 in Sutton, Middlesex, England.
Regarding: R. Shortrede's Logarithmic Tables (Edinburgh). http://www.1911encyclopedia.org/Mathematical_Table
In 1844 Shortrede published the first edition of his tables; in 1849 he published the second edition.
A. De Morgan (a mathematician of note) is quoted in the opening of my tables: "This is, as far as we know, the only set of Tables to every second, undertaken at the expense of a single individual, and it shows extraordinary energy and spirit".
The tables were first published in 1844 - the year Clara Ann Channer married Robert Shortrede! I'm convinced it was the same man and I think she made a wise choice - although she may have been bored at times as he must have spent many hours closeted away computing tables.
Robert is listed as F.R.A.S - which I'm sure is Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society.
He is also given as: "MAJOR-GENERAL, LATE OF BOMBAY ARMY, H.E.I.C.S".
