Mary began adult life in a phase of intense enthusiasm for high church faith and practice. She broke off an engagement with William Harcourt, who later held high office, with a view to founding an Anglican sisterhood . It was predictable that she would want to found one rather than join one. She read her way into Anglican agnosticism through George Eliot (who later became a friend) and John Stuart Mill , strongly supported the founding of Girton , better jobs for women and the trade union movement. She was generally more left wing than Henry who, without her, might not have been as left wing as he was but never shed the attachment to breeding and manners that her own upbringing gave her.

Both had experienced the loss of their father relatively early in life and in both cases there was, as a result, much less money than they had been used to in their early years.

There is no sense of Henry's changing much throughout his adult life. Some characteristics became more marked, and he obviously grew more experienced and authoritative, but, save for the marginal impact of Mary's influence, his views and values remained much the same from his early years as Albert's equerry to his grander role up to his death in 1895, just before his 70th birthday.
