Detailed information: 

Her father was probably the hotel-keeper Benjamin Bailey of Serampore. Benjamin Bailey died of Cholera in 1860. His wife Louisa Bailey is buried in the Scottish Cemetery [See ]. Benjamin Bailey's address at the time of his wedding is given as Free School Street and he married Louisa Peters (nee Marquis) of Jaun Bazar. Bailey was a widower and Peters a widow at the time of their marriage in 1842. He seems to have married Amelia Bailey after Louisa.

Bailey's will lists two surviving children, Benjamin Charles Bailey, residing in Colombo, Ceylon and Elizabeth, residing in England. The auction of his property was entrusted to Mackenzie, Lyall & Co. of the Calcutta Auction Exchange.
