Agnes Kempson was born in 1880 at Luton in Bedfordshire, daughter of a straw hat sewer named Sarah Ann Kempson, formerly Smith, and her husband James Kempson, a bricklayer and plait bleacher. The 1881 census finds Agnes living with her parents and siblings at Park Place in the centre of Luton. By 1891 she was living with her mother and siblings at Chobham Street, in the southern suburbs of the town. Her father was not at home on census night, being in St Albans jail - he was convicted of poaching several times. In 1901, Agnes was living with her sister Elizabeth at 33 Albert Road, close to where her parents were living.

In 1904, aged 24, Agnes married a foundry labourer named Francis (or Frank) Linsley. The 1911 census finds them living together at 162 New Town Street, and reporting that in the six years since their marriage they had had no children. It appears that they did eventually have one child, born in in 1913, nearly nine years after their marriage.

Frank died in 1940, aged 62. Agnes outlived him for over 35 years, dying aged about 96 in 1976.
